Parálisis aislada del sueño

Síntomas:

Las personas con parálisis del sueño aislada tienen episodios que duran desde unos pocos segundos hasta 1 ó 2 minutos en los cuales son incapaces de moverse o hablar.

  • Estos episodios terminan por sí solos o cuando a la persona la tocan o la mueven.
  • En muy pocas ocasiones, la persona puede tener sensaciones similares al sueño o alucinaciones que pueden asustarla.

Pruebas y exámenes:

Si usted no tiene otros síntomas de narcolepsia, por lo regular no es necesario llevar a cabo estudios del sueño.
