Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

You may have a sleep disorder going on here. It's could be something like narcolepsy or even sleep apnea going on at night when you sleep, causing you to sleep very badly and become oxygen deprived. As a result, you can fall asleep without feeling it coming on during the day or feel tired even though you think you've slept well all night.

Your situation could be very dangerous if you are driving, cooking or bathing etc, so seeing a doctor should be your priority. It may or may not be any of the above but warrants making an appointment.

Let me know what you think of the links I sent you. Did they help?
