Narcolepsy is a sleep disoder that presents with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), often culminating in falling asleep spontaneously but unwillingly at inappropriate times called sleep attacks. About 70% of those who have narcolepsy also have cataplexy, a sudden weakness in the motor muscles that can result in collapse to the floor while retaining full conscious awareness. Other symptoms of narcolepsy include sleep paralysis, hypnogogic and hypnopompic hallucinations, and automatic behaviors. It is diagnosed with sleep studies including an overnight polysomnogram and multiple sleep latency test called MSLT.
