CITYWIDE -- The New York State Department of Health has reported a sudden increase in cases of narcolepsy throughout the city. Narcolepsy—a disorder that causes the patient to be excessively drowsy and to even fall asleep at random—is caused by low levels of hypocretin in the brain and typically hereditary, which has officials stumped. Fewer than 10% of the newest cases have reported having a family member with the disorder, which has led officials to question the presence of a toxin in the air or water.
