October 29, 2018
Understanding Narcolepsy, the Rare Disease That Affects Patients’ Sleep-Wake Cycles
Narcolepsy can be described as a chronic neurologic condition in which the brain is not able to control normal sleep-wake cycles. It’s a condition that affects approximately 1 in 2,000 people in the U.S. and is often underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed. On today’s Behind the Mystery, we’ll hear one woman’s emotional journey to get diagnosed, as well as from Dr. Raj, a pulmonary critical care sleep specialist who educates us on the facts, symptoms, and how to get an appropriate diagnosis for narcolepsy.
Caroline Manzo, who will soon appear on the celebrity edition of The Balancing Act, is showing off a whole new look, as featured on The Today Show's website.
