How to Get Help From the VA if You’re Suffering From Narcolepsy:
Sleep Disorders Related to PTSD: Narcolepsy
Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder that causes excessive sleepiness and frequent daytime sleep attacks. One of the most common symptoms of narcolepsy is periods of extreme drowsiness during the day. Narcoleptics may feel a strong urge to sleep and then sleep immediately after. Hi, I’m Mike Woods, a Veterans Disability Benefits Lawyer at Woods & Woods – The Veteran’s Firm.
Is your sleep disorder related to PTSD?
Sleep disorders are common among veterans with PTSD. Narcolepsy in particular is one of the most serious sleep disorders. During the periods of extreme drowsiness, a person with narcolepsy will fall asleep immediately after, even if they are talking to someone, eating or even driving. This disorder can be dangerous and may cause dream-like hallucinations between sleep and wakefulness. Sleep paralysis is also a common symptom among people with narcolepsy where a person cannot move as they start falling asleep and when they first wake up. This paralysis can last up to 15 minutes.
