Hi Denise - thanks for your question.  The only way you will be able to know for sure if what you are experiencing is narcolepsy is to seek a professional medical evaluation.  It really is important to have a doctor you can speak to about you symptoms.

 

In the meantime, you can read about this particular sleep disorder in Understanding Narcolepsy.

 

Hope this helps.  all the best, sue (moderator)

If you taken any narcotics , it could be a drug interaction with other perscribed medicine, if you suspect this could be the case have a talk with your doctors and ask if they can check with other doctors of a drug interaction that could cause your problem.
