Do You Think You Have
Narcolepsy Disease?

You should be checked for narcolepsy disease if:

  • You often feel excessively and overwhelmingly sleep during the day, even after having had a full night's sleep.

  • You fall asleep when you do not intend to, such as while having dinner, talking, driving, or working.

  • You collapse suddenly or your neck muscles feel too weak to hold up your head when you laugh or become angry, surprised, or shocked.

  • You find yourself briefly unable to talk or move while falling asleep or waking up.
