I was just diagnosed with Narcolepsy, not a big shocker as I knew something was not right. I was a stay at home mom for 6 years I just went back to work almost a year ago. I love my job and am now in school to become a Montessori teacher, have two active children one is soccer and the other is in softball so my evenings are spent at practice and my days working. My husband is a firefighter so he can be gone a lot. I first noticed my symptoms at the age of 18, thought I just required more sleep but I think even then I knew something was not right in my body. In early 20's I was diagnosised with ADD. I took Adderall off and on when needed through out my life. After a period of 6 years of staying home with my children, I went back to work in June of last year. Immediately I was barley able to function. Memory loss, extreme fatigue so sleepy, major brian fog so thinking was my ADD I went to doctor obtained a script for Adderall. But something still was not right I could feel the medicine diminish ( I take IR) and then the symptoms would return vigorously. On several occasions I would be at a stoplight waiting for a green light and start to feel the pull to sleep, this got my attention enough that I googled, Causes of Excessive sleepiness in daytime, Narcolepsy, see sleep doctor, neurologist. At first I thought, " No way" but on a whim I scheduled a appointment. Doctor informed me, " I am 99% sure you have Narcolepsy but need to have over night sleep study and MLST to confirm. After my results showed sleep latency of 1.5 min with REM in all naps, I knew what I was dealing with. I am to have my doctor appointment in 5 days and would like to know what medications seem to best counteract the symptoms from others experience. What are some questions that should be ask during visit? Should I take my husband with me so he can fully understand the condition? Thank you so much!!!!
