Does Anyone Have Narcolepsy?

Does Anyone Have Narcolepsy?

I had to have a sleep study done maybe 2 years ago. Becouse I just was getting good sleep...the doctor had me do the regular overnight sleep study and a nap study...the over night study showed that I never even came close to ream sleep....for the nap study you take 15 min naps every hour for about 5 hours. Well every time I took the naps I would go right into ream sleep. So they told me I had narcolepsy and it's part of my fibro.
