Thanks for posting, Hoping. Narcolepsy was one of my earliest acute symptoms. Had to laugh at the reference to "hypocretin deficiency" though. I have been told that my problem was due to "hypercretin abundancy"!
Thanks for the link! I had been missing from the internets, so I missed this, and was happy to see it. Exciting, honestly -- they'd already found some pretty solid evidence that narcolepsy is autoimmune, but this is a really important finding both as confirmation and as identification of an actual, specific reactive autoantigen.
Interesting. Mine went away 7 - 10 days post gf diet. I've had it once or twice after getting to much gluten
It's annoying finding out that so many of my problems were from gluten and no one
knew this. A simple genetic test for gluten intolerance could've saved me from years of this crap. I have the
DQ2 celiac gene.
fwiw, I have noctural myoclonus (jerking) which wakes me up when going into rem so my sleep study expert missed this.
Duh ! Lol. Tc ... X
