Would love to see an episode on Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. This lifelong painful condition is often misdiagnosed. I was in my 40’s before getting a diagnosis, and my mum was in her 60’s before she was diagnosed. It is an autosomal dominant condition, so you only need one parent with it to pass it on. It is a lot more common than previously thought, and most of us go through many years of searching for answers. I think bringing awareness to this condition could help many many people. EDS is a connective tissue disorder that can affect every part of the body, as the collagen (the glue that holds us together) is faulty.

Oh my gosh. There’s a possibility of me having narcolepsy? Just putting a name to my issue is amazing. I’ve always thought narcolepsy was just falling asleep randomly? But ever since I was a kid I’ve woken up to crazy hallucinations. Where I’m awake but asleep. Hmm?

I'm so angry with that doctor on Janis' behalf, as someone with a conversion disorder. Conversion disorders are a subset of anxiety disorders where anxiety manifests physically. For me it can feel like I've lost control of my right arm, and that does overlap with cataplexy, but if you were to take my arm and try to move it, you couldn't. Some part of me is holding my arm in that position which is *not* the case for cataplexy. If you were to take the arm of someone experiencing cataplexy in it, it would move easily.

@h12man It depends! But I will say, all my dreams are incredibly vivid and I am sometimes half asleep and half awake while dreaming. I've had a reoccurring nightmare for a week. But I'd say I do have more nightmares than the average person because I generally sleep more and dream more than the average person! To put it in perspective, I sometimes sleep 24-48 hours at a time

As a future teacher, I value videos like these and the kind people who are willing to tell their stories. I now know that if one of my students is falling asleep in class, I will not blame them or make them feel bad. They may be like these folks and have a sleep disorder or may simply have not gotten enough sleep last night because they had to take care of their siblings. I am determined not to judge or assume, but rather to simply help. Thank you, Anthony and the wonderful people in all his videos.

As someone who is genuinely questioning and curious and a tad ignorant about the disorder, should people who suffer from narcolepsy be allowed to be behind a wheel? Shouldn’t it be considered a disability just like how people that are blind aren’t allowed to drive or people who are deaf aren’t allowed to drive? Shouldn’t they make service dogs for narcoleptic sufferers? I just feel bad that these people went through these terrible driving experiences and I’m just trying to navigate these questions I have from a place of good intentions. Please correct me or tell me I’m wrong if I’m wrong because I genuinely want to know and be educated on the subject.

This is such an important topic. I got diagnosed with narcolepsy at age 18 but I've had it my entire life. My mother was borderline narcoleptic but my symptoms were always excused as "being a teenager". For me, the constant exhaustion is the worst part. I am one of the rare people who has all 5 symptoms of narcolepsy, sleepiness, hallucinations, paralysis, cataplexy, and fragmented sleep/insomnia. My doctors used to think I had all of these disorders separately until I went in for lots of tests to discover they were all connected to narcolepsy. I am currently on medication to help keep me alert, but the usefulness is wearing off over time and I am at the highest dose. Due to this, I will probably have to start taking the stronger medications known as "stimulants" which are what lots of people call "legal speed". Which is the exact reason I don't want to take them. For a normal person, taking my medication would act like speed or similar drugs, but for me it just barely keeps me functioning. The worst part about my narcolepsy is that most people view it as a "comedic illness". The usual response I get when telling someone I have narcolepsy is "Oh haha that's so funny! I've seen that in a movie before, you just fall asleep!" It makes me so angry like, how is that funny? How is someone losing consciousness funny? Narcolepsy is so much more than just suddenly falling asleep, in fact that's uncommon for most narcoleptics. What is most common is living everyday feeling like you can never heal from the events of the previous day. It's hell, it's exhausting. And there's so many things people don't consider. I am legally unable to drive because in my state if you have an illness that causes you to lose consciousness, you cannot operate a vehicle. Sometimes I cannot go to work or I have to leave work because I am physically unable to wake up and I sleep for 14+ hours a day. I now have to work part time and don't make enough money, but the government still says I don't have a "real disability" so I cannot get funding. If I were to have a huge narcoleptic attack on the day of my wedding, the wedding is off. Because I literally cannot wake up, it is like I am in a coma. The amount of things I have broken from dropping them, the vivid nightmares I experience every single night. Since I am tired constantly, I hallucinate through out my entire day, not just when I am going to bed. Jobs unwilling to accommodate me because falling asleep isn't "a real disability". My friends and family avoid telling me any kind of big news, good or bad for fear of me having an attack. I feel absolutely useless when my fiancé has to cook for me, run my errands, etc. all because I cant just wake the hell up. I get so mad at myself everyday for having this. "How hard is it to just open your damn eyes and function like a person?" I feel like a burden, I feel lazy, weak, and unworthy. Narcolepsy isn't funny. Please don't laugh at ANYONE for ANY illness unless you know that person and they are comfortable with those kind of jokes. I'm sorry for my ramble.

Type 1 here. My sleep cycles are just like the chick in pink. I was diagnosed at 21 years old and have lived with this for 21 years. It sucks. I hate it. I don’t know what it feels like to be not tired. I zone out ALL the time. Not necessarily asleep, but zoned to the point I don’t realize time passing. My cataplexy is triggered by strong negative emotions and going from a dark room to bright fluorescent lighting. The best was after my first doctor passed away 5 years after i was diagnosed, my new doctor didn’t believe that I actually had narcolepsy even though I have the gene, the 3 days sleep study Showed VERY bad sleep organization (60%+ if REM at night and REM within 5 minutes for all 5 of my naps, AND had a spinal tap done and my spinal fluid was being used in research at the Stanford Sleep Research facility because I had NO detectable traces of Hypocretin in my spinal fluid). I was just like....WHAT???? So ALL tests show positive without a doubt, and you want me to do another sleep study because you think I’m faking it??? She didn’t make make me do the second night of the study because I was in REM for 72% of the first night. She acknowledged I wasn’t faking it.

i remember in 7th grade feeling extremely tired, falling asleep in class all the time, every day, and having cataplexy attacks without knowing that it was actually cataplexy. i started looking into why i was so tired, i looked up symptoms of narcolepsy because i had heard the term on tv before, and all of the descriptions matched. i told my parents i thought i might have narcolepsy, and they said that it’s probably just because i’m a teenager, i just need to get on a better sleep schedule. i then started looking into why i fall over when laughing, and found out it’s because of cataplexy, a symptom of narcolepsy; that really confirmed in my mind that i most likely had narcolepsy and need to do something about it. i told my parents and they ended up scheduling me a sleep study at the beginning of my 8th grade year. i entered REM almost immediately in all 5 of my naps lol. i finally got the diagnosis of narcolepsy with cataplexy, started medication, and my life improved significantly. while i am constantly changing doses and medications, (tried effexor for my cataplexy and it got extremely worse for a period of time) and am always still super tired, i am so glad i pushed to get that sleep study because without it i would most likely not be typing this right now and would be sleeping instead. just finished my 9th grade year with narcolepsy & still finished with straight As and a 4.0+ GPA :))) [i do have my temps and am a little nervous about getting my license, especially having to drive by myself] it’s not common to get diagnosed as young as i am and as early into the onset, so if you or anyone think you may have narcolepsy, please advocate for yourself and push for that diagnosis!! i promise it’ll change your life for the better :)

I knew a woman who had narcolepsy, and she drove her car into a building, somehow setting the building on fire, and it burned down. She was charged with ARSON, and sentenced to TWENTY YEARS of probation. I thought that was pretty harsh. She was treated worse than some people get for drunk driving, even though it wasn't her fault. It make me realize that causing any kind of harm while under the influence of any condition or substance can be very severely punished. I have learned to go park someplace safe and take a nap if I feel at all sleepy.

Thank you for bringing real insight into our lives as narcoleptics. It's so misunderstood and made fun of in entertainment. I like to make light of mine, especially the cataplexy, but because of how it's been portrayed, I can't even get my own family to understand and believe it.

Janise's comments at the end about advocating for yourself and the lady who came to her bedside to talk to her made me cry. I wish I had watched this or anybody had told me this when I was younger. It took me years to finally go to a doctor for my migraines and to get my ADHD diagnosis. I'm Texan, and the whole pulling yourself up by your bootstraps and admitting you're in pain makes you a weakling really broke me for a long time. It wasn't my fault. It took me years and years to finally advocate for myself and fight for my diagnosis and get the meds I'd needed all along. Thanks Janise, for telling viewers to advocate for themselves. Hopefully less of the next generation has to suffer like we did.

His DID video was very interesting, what about other dissociative disorders? Specifically depersonalization/derealization disorder, because it would very interesting considering I probably have it, been talking to my therapist and it has a huge impact on your life. Not self diagnosing, there is a possibility I don't have it, but just considering the fact that people look at it as a not so serious disorder, when it really affects your life in such a huge way.

After feeling rundown and exhausted for all of my student years, I finally recognized that something was wrong when I was working in the real world and realized that everyone else around me didn't feel like they were about to fall over at the end of the day. After talking with my Primary doctor, we tried adding/altering vitamins, checking my thyroid, removing caffeine, working out more, etc and nothing helped. He then told me that I must have sleep apnea because I was overweight, even though I wasn't presenting any other symptoms and knowing people personally in my life with sleep apnea and not having any similarities. I went to the sleep doctor anyway because I was at my wit's end! I'm so thankful I did, because within 5 minutes of talking to me, the doctor said "well, I'm 99% positive you have narcolepsy, but we'll do the sleep study so that we can get you on meds to manage it". Turns out, for my brand of narcolepsy, it was really common to experience sleep paralysis, and experience night terrors, and not be able to remember small chunks of time (like driving home, or having an actual conversation with someone). It's a very real disorder and I'm sure even more people don't realize they have it. It I wasn't stubborn enough to keep pursuing it, I could've very easily resigned myself to just being extra tired. Thanks for this!!!

My sister has narcolepsy with cataplexy. Janise's story reminded me of the time my sister was cooking breakfast in middle school and she held on to the spatula for so long that the handle melted into her palm. We were goofing off, and I now know that we had triggered a sleep attack. She was standing, and seemed awake but she was in REM and the burn could have been a lot worse if I did not notice that the plastic was melting and I literally had to push her away from the stove. Our kitchen is a no joke zone, especially when my little brother is around, that boy is a safety hazard. 😂 When my sister was diagnosed, every friend and family immediately accepted it, because all of my sister's mishaps and "quirks" growing up were actually symptoms. It all made perfect sense. It was a relief to everyone that she was now getting treatments that help her.

I recently got diagnosed with narcolepsy with cataplexy, and epilepsy. They basically work against each other so if I don't get good sleep then I have a seizure. Seizure activity makes the narcolepsy worse. And if I'm not dealing with nocturnal seizures or insomnia then I'm sleepwalking or having a sleep paralysis stare off with the sleep demons. I'm 27 and can't drive because I just randomly falling asleep or having a seizure. My husband really monitors my caffeine intake and sleep schedule and makes sure I'm always safe because it can be dangerous. Thank you for covering narcolepsy!!!

Janice being Misdiagnosed by the Psychiarist cu'z, disorders can overlap other disorders. Not only that but it can be comorbidity with other mental disorder. So, diagnosing someone can be very hard. Another thing is before going to any psychologist or psychiatrist, it is much better to go to the doctor first because the symptoms can be explain better biologically. If it is cannot be treated thru biological means, then much better to refer to the mental health profession.

Not saying that this is a representative example, but the bloke did get diagnosed FAR before the women.

I have sleep apnea and I was tested for narcolepsy but I don't have it. I don't fall asleep randomly but I am constantly fatigued and I've had boughts of muscle weakness while laughing. I'm not sure if my fatigue is my depression or if it's something more. I'm not sure what it is and my doctors won't listen to me about anything

The muscle weakness has happened in my legs and hands. I've had to suddenly sit or if I'm holding something I've had a hard time holding onto it.

I have Narcolepsy & it presents different for each person. I was diagnosed after being in the Navy for 2 years. My symptoms presented in boot camp. I also have sleep apnea. Once I was diagnosed with narcolepsy it became illegal to drive even with medication. If I were to get in an accident I could be charged with driving with the intent. The intent could be anything since I’m aware that my driving is a hazard to myself and those around me. My study had me in RIM on average of 1 min and some odd seconds.

Great interviews. It could have gotten more into what cataplexy is because it’s very different reasons have it. Positive emotion is not the only emotion. Mine is anger, suddenly being scared like if two dogs got into a fight next to you, or you see a car accident happen. Or orgasm sets off my cataplexy. Mine is not full body collapse except after orgasm. The rest of the emotions bring on knee buckles, slurred speech. Anyway, cataplexy, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis are other issues along with sleep attacks and micro sleeps. It certainly is a multi faceted disease and no two patients have the same symptoms. Advocating for yourself is so hard because many Drs do brush off your symptoms as being lazy. Get in to see a sleep specialist! Even sleep specialist are hard to deal with because many are simply osa drs. And have little to no experience with Narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnia. Another type of sleep disorder.

I had been researching about my extreme sleepiness ever since I felt something was wrong with my body. Whenever I had googled about extreme sleepiness, the result would come out as "insomnia" which is just opposite of it. I don't get proper hours of sleep because of my work and uni assignments. I thought it is because of fatigue and body ache. Even though I sleep for 8-10 hours, I still feel asleep in the day time. I can sleep within 5 minutes anytime and anywhere. Even while watching this video, I was doing my assignment which I could not focus on due to sleepiness. I thought of searching on YouTube then I found this video talking about Narcolepsy. I am so glad to know my solution. I am quite sure I do have Narcolepsy without cataplexy. I will visit a specialist after I finish this semester as I don't have time now. Thank you for this video. I am not only the one who has got this problem. I feel motivated now.

I can literally sleep 15 hours straight and then feel like I got zero rest. I can fall asleep at all hours of the day or night, light or none.. it fucking sucks, completely exhausted all day, daydreaming on another level, and the times I do get energy, it feels so good but leaves so fast.

i have a sort of similar sleep disorder, idiopathic hypersomnia. i didn't get diagnosed until i was in my first year of veterinary school. i had the same experience, where, in class, i'd stay sitting up, have my eyes open even, and sometimes even be moving my pencil on the paper in random scribbles, but i wasn't really conscious & couldn't remember any of the lectures. i'd always been treated as though it was just me being lazy, and that it was my fault, so i assumed it was true. i used to stab myself in the palm with my pencil and doodle nonstop to try and stay awake during class. i tried to predict when the sleepiness attack was about to start and i'd force myself to leave the classroom and get some air. finally i knew something was seriously wrong when there was a lecture i was SUPER looking forward to on a subject i adore, yet i still passed out after about 10 minutes, just like every other lecture. i also have moderate obstructive sleep apnea and restless leg, which don't help. with diagnosis and treatment, i'm much more wakeful, but i still sometimes have trouble, especially during meetings or seminars. it's at its worst when i'm somewhat warm, not able to move around, it's quiet, and i'm not actively participating in anything or feeling any super strong emotions.

Im from germany 16 years old and have narcolepsy and for me so many things are the same as in the video it feels great to know that there are people out there who experienced the same stuff i did and still do. Thanks for the Video it honestly means a lot to me that more people get to know about narcolepsy and how it affects our lifes .
