i sent you a message I am just getting the hang of this and I have narcolepsy would definitely like to chat
Have you discussed your excessive daytime sleepiness with your physician? It's possible you need to have a special kind of sleep study, called an "overnight polysomnogram with MSLT." The MSLT tests for Idiopathic Hypersomnia or Narcolepsy. Both of these conditions are treatable with medication, so it's important to get an accurate diagnosis. As you have sleep apnea, I'm guessing you're familiar with the overnight sleep studies, and have a sleep specialist who manages your care. The difference here is that you will stay into the afternoon after your overnight study, and they will have you try to take a series of naps after having a full night's sleep. Depending on how quickly you fall asleep, and how quickly you reach REM sleep, they can tell if you have IH, narcolepsy, or something else.
I have told both physician as well as sleep specialist and no one seems to be hearing me I will have to ask about narcolepsy.
If you feel these doctors aren't taking your concerns seriously, it may be time to seek a second opinion from someone with fresh eyes. I've had to do this for various reasons in the past, and it's almost always helpful.
