It depends on what you call an episode. I tend to nod off at least once a day, esp. if I don't take my meds. I go into sleep paralysis just about everytime I fall asleep, be it for a nap or for nighttime sleep... the only times I don't are when I am extremely physically tired. I tend to have cataplexic episodes once or twice a week, though the severity varies from a split second to a couple of minutes. The 'hallucinations' come and go as they please, though recently I have seen a significant increase in them.

Hi Malevicta.  It sounds like you'll be able to add some interesting input around here.  Be sure to share your dream experiences, as they sound like they're pretty interesting.  I'm fascinated by the changes the narcolepsy made.

Welcome to the forums!

Namaste,

Hello everyone.

I'm new here. Woohoo.

What initially drew me here is a bit long winded for an introduction but it more or less boils down to the fact I have narcolepsy. The first signs came in early eighth grade (with puberty), and I was finally diagnosed in eleventh grade... I have all the symptoms of narcoplepsy, sleep paralysis, cataplexy, hypnogogic and hypnopompic hallucinations... you name it.

I have always been fascinated by my dreams, even before I developed narcolepsy... But when I developed narcolepsy several things changed. The first was that I started dreaming more, and in different ways. I hesitate to even call many of my experiances dreams because they are of a different quality than what I associate with dreams... the doctors tend to want to call them hallucinations of varying sorts, as  many of them include a wide variety of sensory input and a connection to my body not found when I hit REM.

The second major thing was the onset of sleep paralysis. I noticed that I could move myself (to some extent) while falling asleep - myself not being my physical self. Usually it starts with my arms, and recently I have been trying to "get up", remove myself from me... and go and wander about, I guess... But I haven't quite managed to seperate the two mes yet, though I remain convinced that I can, I just  haven't found out how... a sticking point seems to be sight, I can move, and every now and then roll out of bed but as soon as I try to open my eyes, my physical eyes open and I am 'snapped' back... it is an interesting feeling, going into sleep paralysis (I seem to have developed a loose control over it)... sometimes I think I can feel my brain waves shifting, and these shifts are accompanied by a shift upward... almost floating above myself... sometimes I am convinced that my actual physical body is floating in the air, but I have been assured that this is not the case. Smiley

Anyway, I could go on about some other things that my narcolepsy has triggered, but I think I will stick to this, no sense in throwing too much out there...

Anyway, if this rings any bells in peoples heads I would appreciate it if you would point me in the right direction. Thankee very much!
