dabeave1079 My 24 year old son suffers from this and ever since he was a baby I could not wake him up. He oversleeps all the time for work (he has three alarm clocks in different parts of his bedroom.) He ruined his 1972 chevy caprice (his baby ) he fell asleep driving. You will not sound crazy if you see a doctor, sleep disorders are common though many are left undiagnosed. It is hard to hear how many people have no insurance and end up suffering in silence. It will get better if you seek help. Fall Queen
Question: Dose this happen after you eat? or when your under stress? If there is no real reason for what cause it. Go see a Pulmonary Dr. or see If your PCP who can prescribe you Provigil so you wont drive off the road. I experience the same thing. A while ago. I slept a lot. I took Provigil until I didn't need it any more. It was Depression/ Panic in my case, over a year I took it. I might of been lucky to of been able to stop taking it. good luck.
