Just a question

I don't have uncontrollable urges to sleep during the day, but I do often experience sleep paralysis, and some days I get really tired despite having slept all night.

I did some research on this topic, and I don't think I ...

Taking modafinil, sleep attacks gone but still fatigued?

Hi, I was diagnosed with narcolepsy this year after years of wondering what the heck was wrong with me and being asleep so much I was barely functioning. I was prescribed modafinil as treatment. Now it's wonderful in that I do not get sleep attacks anymore on it. However I find I am still quite fatigued throughout the day and have trouble concentrating unless I have caffeine. I'm glad it keeps me from falling asleep ...

Possible Narcolepsy Diagnosis?

And I am not sure what is happening to me.
In the two most recent scenarios, I took a nap ...
