Do You – or Does Someone You Love – Fall Asleep At Inappropriate Times?
If Yes, You Or the One You Love, May Be One of the Thousands of Americans Who Suffer from Chronic Narcolepsy
And, if left untreated you are risking more serious consequences, such as:
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Don't Let Untreated Narcolepsy Ruin Your Quality of Life
- Hypnagogic hallucinations
- Sleep paralysis
- Falling asleep at the wheel of a moving vehicle or other inappropriate times
However, you're not alone and we'd like to help you make sure that narcolepsy doesn't rule your life. And this begins with a confidential consultation with one of our board-certified sleep physicians, who will accurately diagnose your condition and explore treatment options with you.
However, if you're like many people, you may not be certain that the symptoms you're experiencing (or observing in others) are signs of narcolepsy. If so, use the following "Narcolepsy Symptoms Checklist" - which was designed by medical professionals and sleep experts - to help you determine if you, or someone you know, may be suffering from narcolepsy and should consult a physician.
Narcolepsy Symptoms Checklist
If you are experiencing just one of the symptoms included in the list above, you should call us toll-free at 866-499-1588 so we can help you as well.
This is even more important because many people who are actually suffering from another very serious sleeping disorder, sleep apnea, mistakenly believe that they have narcolepsy. Since both conditions warrant immediate medical attention, it is imperative that you seek help right away.
When you call, we will answer your questions, listen to your concerns, and / or schedule you for a confidential consultation with one of our board-certified sleep physicians, who will explore the possible causes of your sleeping problem and offer you solutions for treating it.
Why Seek Help Immediately?
Narcolepsy is a very serious – and potentially very dangerous - medical condition of the brain that negatively affects many aspects of sufferers' lives. Additionally, it can be linked to other more serious mental and emotional health issues such as stress, depression, and distraction. Most importantly, since people with narcolepsy can fall asleep at any time, they are far more likely to be injured in the home, workplace, or as part of a motor vehicle accident.
So, please call us toll-free at 866-499-1588 or use our online Appointment Request Form to schedule a confidential consultation with one of our board-certified sleep physicians.
What is Narcolepsy?
Why Not Let Feeling Great Sleep Medical Centers Tackle Your Narcolepsy, and Help You Feel Great Too?
Narcolepsy is a chronic sleeping disorder that causes sufferers to fall asleep at any given time. These episodes can last for several seconds or as long as 30 minutes. Additionally, narcoleptics often experience a wide variety of other disturbing symptoms including cataplexy, sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations, automatic behaviors and disrupted nighttime sleep. People of all ages are susceptible to narcolepsy, although it is more common among older adults and women.
Narcolepsy appears to be a disorder of the brain that controls sleep and wakefulness and occurs when the brain is not able to control sleep and wakefulness.
