    Default Idiopathic hyper-somnia

    Any body have / know about this?
    I have a tentative diagnosis, and am going for a "sleep study" this week.

    Basically the opposite of insomnia, the body chemistry has difficulty waking up.

    I have always had this at a low level of sorts.
    I like to nap..
    When I wake up,, I'm usually dizzy and tend to run into things, have trouble negotiating doors, etc.. takes me an hour or so to actually be awake and happy early morning people drive me insane, because I can't mentally cope with them at all.

    My nickname since I was little is Lizard - cuz I can sleep anywhere, anytime.
    Frankly I never knew there was anything to do about it, - I don't find it super annoying, I just like to sleep

    Default Story of my life

    Yea, been diagnosed with that. If you'd call that a diagnosis- almost as bad as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It's not a 'real' diagnosis Basically it means 'you are overly somnolent and we have no idea why'.

    But that's OK.

    I still have no idea what's wrong with me. I just take Adderall (yes it's prescribed for this), and coffee.

    Here I go again :-) but if this is a change for you, please also rule out Lyme Disease.

    Not really a "change", but it has become worse recently.
