My Mood: I did not see Narcolepsy listed....
Default I did not see Narcolepsy listed....

Since Narcolepsy is a Neurological disorder, did I miss it? Is it listed under another title?
Thanks, Dave

Thanks Jo*Mar, I looked at the Sleep Apnea threads, and thought I would ask here before I asked any questions in the other area.

I wanted to gather some first hand info to supplement what the medical community finds.

Thanks, I will take a look there. This condition has just started in the last month or so, IF it is Narcolepsy.

So far I mainly do it sitting in my Lazy-Boy recliner, not in the car, or walking around.

Pulmonologist says I have sleep deprivation. I slept 53 minutes last night (per my Ventilator software).

If I take Rozerem (8mg) or Lunesta (3mg) I can sleep some. Haven't tried anything stronger.

They tested me with several blood/urine panels. My glucose is 126 and on this test it means I am borderline diabetic. Did I mention the new kidney problems? But it could always be worse....I see people every day worse off than me. Thanks for the help.
