Thus, these video images are slightly grainy, but we can clearly see the nature of these sleep attacks. Segment 1. Her family noticed that she spoke in a sleepy tone. She tried to take a cup, but she could not. She dropped her head and fell into an approximately 30-second sleep episode with waggling of her head. She woke up suddenly. She did not remember anything of what happened. Segment 2. She spoke slowly, then suddenly dropped her head backward. She waggled her face and made a silent gesture with her mouth. She made a motion with her left hand on her face after a few seconds. She woke up suddenly. She did not remember anything of what happened.|
