What is Narcolepsy and How Can Narcolepsy be Treated?

Narcolepsy, a chronic and crippling disorder, has been haunting at least 1 out of 1200 people in the United States and worldwide. Narcolepsy is a sleeping disorder where the patient is out of sleep very quickly in the nighttime and excessive daytime sleepiness produces irregular sleep patterns and with it a myriad of other side effects. Most of the people suffering from Narcolepsy can be categorised by  EDS (excessive daytime sleeping) and DNS (disrupted nighttime sleep). But another less prevalent but more dangerous symptom is Cataplexy. It is a disease that causes a person to lose control of muscles. It is a sudden loss of muscular strength occurring when experiencing strong emotions such as laughter or anger. People who suffer from narcolepsy often experience cataplexy. Some people with narcolepsy don’t experience cataplexy, but instead have other symptoms. People who have narcolepsy usually experience these symptoms during the day. Some people with narcoleptic disorders also have hallucinations, trouble staying awake during the day, and other problems.

Now you might ask,

Is Narcolepsy genetic? If not, what causes Narcolepsy?

Well in some cases Narcolepsy is in fact genetic but not completely. Narcolepsy is caused due to genetic and environmental factors coming together. In patients experiencing cataplexy and in cases not experiencing it, the difference lies in the brain, where some of the neurons are missing or damaged (brain cells). These cells produce a chemical called hypocretins and these are the chemicals which induce the daily sleep wake cycle. Immune system and its weakness is what results in loss of hypocretin producing brain cells.
Several additional gene strands that also take part in inducing Narcolepsy are usually associated with the immune system. Although not heavily prevalent are minor contributors to produce narcolepsy disorder in the patient. Other environmental factors that corrupt the body such as viral and bacterial infections also might contribute to having Narcolepsy. Strep throat, colds, influenza producing bacteria and viruses might also trigger Narcolepsy in people already at risk.

Now the main question,
