Brief Answer:
yes it may be something else

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

This is possible due to some nutrinioal deficiency or some stress other than the tiredness.
Another possibility is the narcolepsy.

And if you are not able to sleep in night properly, daytime naps are there.

So think about these aspects. And if you feel problem is more than a week and not improving, please consult doctor.

I will be happy to help further.

Dr. Chintan Solanki.
