Lucky you!  Glad things worked out so far.  No apneas is a little troubling, but given your other symptoms, it seems like secondary narcolepsy (nacrolepsy as a result of other problems).  For that diagnosis according to the textbook I'm currently going through doesn't really have a set diagnostic criteria (like the 2 SOREM criteria for "traditional" narcolepsy), but, 1 SOREM after a night of logged sleep without apnea interference is still noteworthy.

I called the sleep neurologist today to ask about my test results.  I was told I don't have narcolepsy, but she is going to treat me with nuvigil.  I have an appointment later this month, and I'll get all the gory details.

the treatment likely wouldn't be much different if they had labelled it officially N anyway.  What you're experiencing seems to be secondary narcolepsy, or narcolepsy as a symptom, rather than a diagnosis or "traditional" N.

Good luck with the nuvigil!
