Young Mother Goes To Sleep Every Time She Laughs Or Gets Angry Due To Rare Condition

Young Mother Goes To Sleep Every Time She Laughs Or Gets Angry Due To Rare Condition

A young mum’s rare condition makes her body ‘go to sleep’ every time she laughs, gets upset and even orgasms. Jessica Southall’s muscles totally relax as if she is asleep when she experiences some strong emotions. Bubbly 20-year-old, Jessica, even suffered ‘sleep attacks’ when she was in labour and has to make sure she’s sitting down if she’s watching something funny on TV.

At its worst, the condition would see her knees buckle and her chin fall to her chest even when she giggled.

She has a rare form of narcolepsy with cataplexy forcing her to sleep for 13 hours a day.

It means the mum’s body ‘goes to sleep’ when she hears a joke, gets really upset or even when she is having s3x.

But it has less amusing side affects, like super-vivid frightening dreams and pre-sleep hallucinations which make her see shadowy figures in her bedroom.

The pregnant mum from Nottingham said: “One minute I’ll be there in stitches laughing my head off, not able to stop and the next moment my head is on my chest or I’m lying on the floor. “I’m fully awake, I can hear everything, but I can’t talk and I can’t move. “I can’t respond or snap out of it until the emotion stops and to every other person it looks like I have fallen asleep. “It happens when I orgasm too. When me and my partner were first dating it was near enough every time. “It might sound funny – and I do have to try and be light hearted about it – but it’s horrible really. “I just had to explain to him that it’s only going to happen when he makes me feel at my very best, but it’s not ideal.” Jessica started to experience extreme exhaustion aged 15, and found herself falling asleep in lessons, on the bus and even mid-conversation.
