Narcolepsy is a chronic, neurological sleep disorder with no known cause. The doctors and sleep technicians at Sleep Centers of Oklahoma are among the leading specialists in the field and contribute to our patients’ health on a daily basis through medical intervention, exceptional care and treatment, and ongoing research.
People with narcolepsy experience a number of symptoms, including periods of extreme sleepiness and sudden sleep attacks that can strike unexpectedly. These bouts of sleepiness can occur repeatedly during one day and generally last anywhere from seconds to minutes at a time. Drowsiness may persist throughout the day, and nighttime sleep may be disturbed by repeatedly waking up.
Narcolepsy affects both men and women equally. Symptoms often manifest in childhood or adolescence, but can occur later in life. It’s a life-long condition.
Narcolepsy is not rare, but it is an underdiagnosed condition because symptoms can be associated with other medial problems. The diagnostic services and sleep studies at INTEGRIS are equipped to identify the disorder.
