I have had Endometriosis for 3years (I am 17y/o) and have recently found out I also suffer from Narcolepsy, in the beginning I just figured it was chronic fatigue syndrome due to the body trying to fight off this disease but that wasn't the case. I am wondering whether these two diseases are linked and whether anyone has any suggestions to coping with the constant sleeping. I try to exercise, drink caffeine and eat healthy etc. but nothing helps, I get a good nights rest 8hours, sometimes more but after being awake for an hour I'm drowsy, need to sleep otherwise I get migraines and a bad fever. I sleep for about 15hours including my 6-8hour sleep throughout the night. I am so upset because I can't do what id like to do with my life, I would like to start studying soon but I can't imagine myself being able to concentrate when all I want to do is sleep!
