For the last 3 years I have been crazy tired during the day and nothing seemed to help. The DR did multiple blood tests, sent me to a person to find out if it was depression and nothing came about it. I finally fought for a sleep study test which they tested me on my over night sleep and a series of daytime mini naps. Well after the 3rd on the DR came in and asked what I would think if I got diagnosed with Narcolepsy. I ended up getting told I have Excessive Daytime Sleepyness and since then I have started researching Narcoplesy.
What Im trying to get at is what exactly is Cataplexy? I dont fall down or anything but when Im nervous (which is usually talking on the phone or with people I dont really know) I slur my speech ALOT. Does this have anything to do with Cataplexy?
Also my DR has put me on 200mg of Provigil and Ive noticed its kind of spotty on when it works. Some days I will be amped and others I can have the TV going and music on my laptop and randomly pass out. Is it all about finding the right drug?
