Cremesoda34, what you describe sounds very similar to where I was, how I was, around when I began my seeking of help. Glad you've found a doc in IN, that can help...
I'd for years been collapsing now and then from Cataplexy, but it had begun occurring with my friends and/or in public, as well as a list of other effects:
-staggered walk occasionally (like drunken walk).
-lots of real fatigue for years, all throughout my body (never realized I was tired, now 5 years later I experience the tiredness rather than so much fatigue, but I am much gentler on myself as well and don't overwork myself, like prior).
-a history of headaches and migraines, as well as ear infections and ear matters, sinuses/allergies - congestion (ENT surgeries), dental matters too... (related somewhat perhaps to lack of quality sleep and the excess histamine - I presume).
-napping has never been something I could plan and/or do in short periods of time; now days I end up taking at least one, near each day, but that is only when I hop from my chair into bed as the sleep attack hits and they tend last 2-3 hours, it can be a battle to take the nap or not...
-as I've gotten a bit older, continually, it seems my sleep patterns change and unfortunately not necessarily in a better direction, as I'd always thought I was a great sleeper until I had a Polysomnography and then spent years trying to grasp understanding to/of the condition/disorder/disease (I also have minimal-moderate idiopathic central sleep apnea which I can not treat due to my ENT matters); reflecting and thinking back, hindsight, has helped tremendously in gauging and juggling (especially relating to Cataplexy).
-brain fog/cloud. Diet has helped this and really all of the above, too.
Many lifestyle adjustments have brought me much benefit, meds have not helped me as they caused side effects which were far worse than the benefit/s, for me (each of us are different and effected in various ways by such, like the disease as well); it's taken years though and has not been easy to find the adjustments which work, and it's a continual juggle, on top of that I still experience all sorts of matters.
The best of luck to you.
