Major Symptoms of Cataplexy

Cataplexy is a muscle weakness that can cause numbness, tingling, and weakness in the affected limb. It often occurs in individuals with multiple sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease. Other symptoms may include muscle fasciculations, muscle spasms, and exercise-induced muscle pain.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Cataplexy

Cataplexy is a neurological disorder characterized by muscle stiffness and weakness. Patients may need to rest in bed and avoid strenuous exercise during the illness to reduce symptoms. At the same time, patients also need to maintain a balanced nutrition and eat more high-protein, easy-to-digest foods to meet the needs of physical recovery. During the stable period of the disease, patients can do some mild exercise appropriately, but they should follow the doctor's guidance to avoid aggravating the condition. In addition, patients should maintain a good mental state and avoid negative emotions such as anxiety and depression to promote recovery.
