Outstanding- this is really valuable.

If I had seen this video when I was trying to identify my Cataplexy, I would have known much sooner.

Because most of my "falls" were slow motion and during sports (like skiing, running, climbing) I thought they were head rushes or just being winded.

The text books describe Cataplexy as "sudden paralysis" but it still feels like I am just sitting down, but then I cannot move full strength until it passes. It is just slow enough to confuse what is occurring.

A picture is worth a thousand words- thanks for the picture and the words.
