Thank for asking
Your query being appreciated, Narcolepsy have several reason but exact reason cause is unknown what ever the reasons are there head injury is not among them, of you have narcolepsy then it may not be due to head injury and it may be due to some other cause, what ever the symptoms you have even is not suggestive of narcolepsy, but it seems to be dementia, or a functional disorders I would suggest to see the neuro-physician hope this information helps.
