sLeePinG BeauTy iLLneSs

Sleeping Beauty Disease or Kleine-Levin Syndrome, is a neurological disorder. I pick that topic for my public speaking. So i would like to share a little bit about those disease symptoms. That primarily affects adolescents, and subsides without treatment. Sleeping Beauty Disease causes both physical and behavioral symptoms. Physical symptoms include grogginess, drowsiness, hypersensitivity to light and sound, and lethargy. Behavioral symptoms can include confusion, apathy, childlike reactions, food cravings and hyper sexuality. There is no definitive treatment for , although some patients are given stimulant drugs to try and keep them awake.
