Diseases That Modern Medicine Still Can’t Cure

Narcolepsy

#5 Narcolepsy

While Fatal Insomnia is about not sleeping at all, narcolepsy is about sleeping anywhere, anytime! It is a sleep disorder where patients unexpectedly suffer from complete loss of muscle control, hallucinations, and sudden attacks of sleep. 

Interestingly, these narcoleptic episodes can be triggered by very strong emotion – like anger or even laughter. This condition has no known cure, but it can be managed by treatments that involve antidepressants, stimulants and other medicines.
