Sleep Disorders # 12: Kleine-Levin syndrome 


Kleine-Levin syndrome or sleeping beauty syndrome is a sleeping disorder characterized by recurring periods of excessive amounts of sleeping and eating. The sufferer can even sleep for days, it sounds cool, but it can be very disastrous. When the patient wakes up, it seems his entire world is changed and he acts childish due to confusion, disorientation, lack of energy and lack of emotions. 


Most are bedridden, tired, and uncommunicative even when awake. The sufferer’s life is completely out of focus and they are hypertensive to noise and light. They lose interest in food, games and their favorite hobbies.  Affected individuals may go for a period of weeks, months or even years without experiencing any symptoms, and then they reappear with little warning.
