Health Tip: Understanding Excessive Sleepiness

06/21/13

(HealthDay News) -- If you spend most days trying to keep your eyes open, you may have a deeper problem than ordinary lack of sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation mentions these possible causes of excessive sleepiness:

  • Self-imposed sleep deprivation.
  • Performing shift work, causing you to sleep during the day and work at night.
  • Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea.
  • Other disorders, such as insomnia, narcolepsy or restless leg syndrome.
  • Certain medications.
