Hypersomnia causes a person to be excessively sleepy. They may fall asleep at any time. This can be dangerous if at work or while driving. They may also have other sleep-related difficulties, a lack of energy and trouble thinking clearly.
Sleep Apnoea and insomnia are other causes of excessive tiredness.
Narcolepsy is a rare neurological condition caused by a protein in the brain. It is characterised by excessive daytime sleepiness, perhaps accompanied by catalepsy
Catalepsy is where you lose control of your muscles and can fall asleep or suddenly realising that you have no memory of what you have just been doing. It is a chronic long-term condition.
Sufferers may also experience hallucinations and sleep paralysis.
