How does eating affect your Narcolepsy???
I have very typical features of Narcolepsy. I have a 9-5 where I work in an office for a social service agency. EDS is very common for me throughout my work days, so I try to find times to take a nap or two (eg lunch time). But besides that, i notice that after i eat, I tend to have less energy, be more sluggish and also need a nap soon after. I was wondering if others noticed the same effects??? How does your eating affect your sleeping patterns???
