falling asleep at any given time no matter where I am

User Profile
Doctor, I have been having a problem with falling asleep at any given time no matter where I am even if I am standing up on my feet at work or driving. I have also noticed that it happened even when I have just woken up. What do you think it could be.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sleep disorders need evaluation, mostly attributed to anxiety and depression however other causes of hypersomnia needs to be correlated clinically.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
