While the average person sleeps from 6 to 8 hours a day, Mr. Purkharam takes a short nap until… 20-25 days later he wakes up. Mr. Purkharam was diagnosed with this syndrome about 23 years ago. His sleeping habits have greatly affected his health and life. Even if he accidentally fell asleep, waking up would be a difficult challenge. With no other choice, Mr. Purkharam’s family had to bathe and feed him while he slept to ensure his health.

Because of this syndrome, he could not find a job, so he had to stay at home selling groceries. But he also sold only 5 days a month, sometimes even selling while nodding. In the early days of his illness, he slept more than 15 hours a day. Worried about his health, the family ran everywhere looking for medicine, but every doctor shook his head. By 2015, his condition was getting worse and worse, now he can sleep more than 20 days in a row/month.
