I need a neurologist to evaluate me to see if I have narcolepsy

Resolved Question:

I need a neurologist to evaluate me to see if I have narcolepsy because I hit a car and must have closed my eyes (and for a few seconds) I was not awake. I need a doctor ASAP because I was arrested on DUII. Breathalizer 00.00. Urine test clear. I was released to my husband on bail. I live in Lake Oswego, OR and would like to find a doctor nearby.
I am interested, from on-line research, in NW Functional Neurology because their info sounds like they could help me get my life back. Two doctors are DC. Please advise.

Hello
So how can I help?
The practice you suggested is a chiropractic practice, so I really cannot comment on that type of treatment, I looked at the webpage, but could not see if they did any testing other than blood work evaluations???
If you have symptoms suggesting Narcolepsy, you should get a PSG (polysomnogram) and maybe a MSLT ( multiple sleep latency test) and document early onset REM, and with that information, and your history of adderall and other medications (?), you should be able to decide if narcolepsy is your diagnosis.
Please get back to me to discuss this if I can help, ask questions. Dr Frank T
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How do I find out if the doctor does those tests; will I have to call each one and ask or should I go to the one I found who works w/sleep disorders?
Expert:  Dr. Frank replied 1 year ago.
You need a Neurologist that specializes in Sleep Disorders, I would call and ask if he had a sleep lab, because you need a diagnosis, and not just medications.

Did you use that webpage search engine I attached earlier??? How many sleep neurologists are in your area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did not use it and don't know if I can get back to that page. On line I saw 1 sleep expert. However, I have been in an overnight hospital for diagnosis of sleep apnea. Would you please provide that information again? Thank you very much, I think that you may have put me on the right track.
