I have narcolepsy with cataplexy. I was wondering if anyone else has had a type of extreme cataplectic attack called status cataplecticus? It left me unable to move or speak for 8 hours when I was super stressed in college. I just ask because I’ve never met someone else who had such an attack.

    Forever Exhausted With my cataplexy there are days I can't speak properly or eat cause "my mouth doesn't want to work"!! Does that make sense? Or my legs won't move when I stand up and I have to stand there looking stupid til I can get moving and my hands get "stuck" for lack of a better term when I go from a fist and then straighten it out. It's not all the time but my legs are the worst
