This could be from tiredness or a poor night sleep!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this excessive sleepiness. When abnormal observations las just for one day, then they are not really a threat to good health and in most instances need no aggressive medical intervention. we however recommend that you put an eye on this to observe whether it will happen again and more often or not. Should it continue to happen, at that time we will proceed with a comprehensive medical evaluation to understand more. If it doesn't happen again, there is no need stressing over it. For this excessive sleepiness, please go on and observe only and only request further evaluation if it happens again. The most common transient causes are a poor night sleep or fatigue.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
