Narcolepsy is a chronic medical condition caused by the loss of a chemical in the brain (orexin/hypocretin).
The symptoms include excessive daytime sleepiness, vivid dreams, sleep paralysis, and sometimes the brief loss of muscle tone (cataplexy). A sleep study can make the diagnosis. See your doctor if concerned as there are treatments. www.wakeupnarcolepsy.org is a good source of information.
