Thanks for your query,

Excess sleep can be because of several reasons: like hormonal changes, vitamins deficiency, anemia, chronic infection, anxiety, low mood or use of some medicine.

Answer me following question to help you better:

-How is your mood, appetite
-How is current functioning
-Total duration of sleep per day and night
-Get your thyroid profile, Complete blood count, kidney function test and liver function test
