What are symptoms of idiopathic hypersomnia?
IH often develops in adolescence and is long lasting, though some instances of remission have been reported. IH can cause social and professional complications, including poor work or school performance, reduced earnings, and loss of employment.
Schoolwork, jobs, and relationships often suffer because of the excessive sleepiness. Someone with IH may appear to forget how to do simple activities or have difficulties with memory and brain fog.
Some people with this IH also experience these problems:
- Cold hands and feet
- Depression symptoms
