Meet the US teen with rare Sleeping Beauty syndrome
Washington, Nov 18 (ANI): A teenager from North Fayette is dealing with a rare sleep disorder called Kleine-Levin or Sleeping Beauty Syndrome, it has been revealed.
17-year-old Nicole Delien slept 64 days in her longest sleeping episode, CBS News reported.
Her mom, Vicki, says Nicole will sleep 18 or 19 hours a day, and when she does wake up to eat, she says Nicole is in a sleepwalking state which she doesn't remember.
Vicki said that it was very frustrating just getting a diagnosis.
They went to various hospitals until a doctor at Allegheny General Hospital finally realized what was going on.
Nicole said that she's missed out on Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays and even the first family trip to Disney World.
Medication helps spread the sleeping episodes further apart. The last one was in March, but Nicole said she's scared of when it will happen again. (ANI)
