Phone Ringing Cataplexy
Most people love being surprised, but not Caitlin Wallace who collapses whenever something unexpected happens – like her phone ringing. That’s because she suffers from a bizarre condition called cataplexy, where moments of extreme emotion cause muscular weakness. This can range from a slackening of the facial muscles, weakness at the knees to total collapse. Laughter, anger, excitement and fear can all cause reactions, but for Caitlin her trigger is surprise.
