    Long story short, I have all the symtoms of narcolepsy, and i am being oppressed by buffalo co. Ne., And Good Samaritan hospital. Ive had the illness in the 6th grade, and reported to hospitals symptoms of cataplexy. Im 48, and my life has been destroyed. Yet no diagnosis.

    Are there people to talk to to help guide me in the right direction for my sleep disorder? If yes, what are the hours of operation? Can someone call me?

    When I am trying to fall asleep I often have an inaccurate proprioception of my limbs (most my arms). Aka it often feels like my limbs are farther apart and/or longer than they are. I would almost describe it as dissociative, but I am aware that it isn’t real. Done some research but haven’t found any answers and would love some help if possible. No past medical hx.
