Welcome to EmpowHER.
People with narcolepsy feel very sleepy during the day and may involuntarily fall asleep during normal activities. In narcolepsy, the normal boundary between awake and asleep is blurred, so characteristics of sleeping can occur while a person is awake.
Sleep apnea is becoming a common cause of daytime sleepiness. Depression is another cause.
It important to talk to your doctor to determine the cause of your sleep issue. Once the cause if found, treatment can be started.
