CBS2: A young woman with narcolepsy finds help at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Doctors misdiagnosed her for years.

“She was thought to have epilepsy because she would drop to the floor. She was thought to have psychiatric conditions, malingering, being anxious, depressed or even hysterical because she would sleep,” said Dr. Sanjeev Kothare, director of pediatric neurology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Kothare diagnosed Reynolds with narcolepsy, a chronic sleep disorder known primarily for overwhelming daytime drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep.
