Cataplexy: People Who Are Too Sensitive

People who faint easily?

Patients with the disease “cataplexy” faint in everyday casual events.

A person can faint when exposed to great shock.

However, patients with this disease are said to be fainted by the following trivial things.

  • When they are surprised by a joke
  • When the ringtone of the mobile phone rings
  • When the boss rebukes them at work

It is not clear how many patients with this rare disease are in the world.
