Narcolepsy Type 1 (Narcolepsy with Cataplexy)
Hi there. After years of unexplained symptoms, my daughter was finally diagnosed with narcolepsy type 1, aka narcolepsy with cataplexy. I too suffer from hypersomnia, but the cyclical nature and neurological symptoms seems much more in line with Kleine-levin syndrome. Does anyone know if there’s a connection between the two? Also, kleine-levin is so rare I feel like it would be hard to get a doctor the take me seriously. It was hard enough getting my daughter diagnosed with narcolepsy—it took years!
