Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that causes daytime tiredness and abnormal sleep patterns. It affects people of all ages and seems to be a problem in five in every 10,000 people. It is quite difficult to diagnose and can cause some unusual problems in daily life.
The neck and back are part of the spine and one tends to affect the other. Most causes of back pain can also lead to neck pain.
Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are abnormal masses of neuroendocrine cells. They can be benign or malignant and most commonly occur in the digestive system.
Nerve injury, particularly when partial and particularly for certain nerves (such as the median or tibial nerve) can cause what is known as neuropathic pain: such cases are characterised by allodynia (a burning sensation upon light touch or cooling of a particular skin area innervated by the lesioned nerve).
A night terror is a brief disruption of normal sleep in which the sleeper becomes terrified; it is like a nightmare but much worse.
Nipple discharge is common in women of child-bearing age, even when they are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Although nipple discharge is rarely a sign of a serious illness, unexplained discharge can be distressing.
