Maybe. Let's hope so.
The prevalence of the disease varies widely in different countries. In Europe and the United States, narcolepsy is roughly as common as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis, affecting on average one in every 2,500 people.
There is no known cure for narcolepsy, which is often treated with stimulants to combat daytime fatigue.
An immediate family member with narcolepsy increases one's chances of having the disease by 10 to 40 times.
And to clarify, I don't has narcolepsy, but Ideopathic Hypersomnia is closely related and treated the same way. And it sucks about as much ass as actual narcolepsy so any new findings are good.
