I was diagnosed with Acute Narcolepsy about 3 years ago. I go into REM in 5 min. After half of my MSLT they sent me home, as it was so positive.
I was negative for Sleep Apnea. I have ADD also. I now take 2 30mg of regular Adderall per day. My symptoms are in check and all is well, however...
Please help me with this next part....In the past year....
Sometimes within the first hour of being awake I feel like I am going back into a dream. I start sweating, getting sluggish and confused. It ends within 5 mins, as I sweat in a pile on my bed or floor.
During this episode know I am in my home, however it is "not my home". You know in dreams, how things just arent the same? Each time I try to manage it, think through it. It would be the most lucid of dreams (all of my dreams at night are very lucid) however I can tell I am awake. There are a few people that I can never seem to figure out during the dream, otherwise it is only my fiance and I in the dream.
At first it only happened right after I got out the shower, usually after morning sex. It has also happened without ejaculation in the evening after showers, but only if my fiance were home or there was music playing during/after shower. (emotions?)
However, the last 4 times have had no consistent traits. Today it happened mid email hours after waking up.
Cataplaxy- My fiance can tell if I am trying to cover my feelings if we get into an argument, as my lips stop working right and they quiver a little bit. I knew she was right, but denied it until I read about cataplaxy.
If this is what they are, how can I stop them?
It ONLY happens in my own home.
Any thoughts, or help?
