I have been sleeping a lot and i feel sleepy all time

I m sixteen years old and lately I ve been sleeping ALOT. When I do wake up, I feel like I need to go back to sleep.. and sometimes I do. Right when I get home from school I go back to sleep. I always have to pee. I am so pissed off sometimes for a reason I dont know why? I m nauseas(sp?) at random times. I feel sick to my stomach when I think about breakfast, but when it comes to lunch I m so hungry and I eat ALOT. I m not sure if I ve lost weight? I m not overweight I m exactly 5 0 and weigh around 114. So yeah, and my sister doesnt believe me, but I really think I am.. I dont want to sound silly, so if you could let me know that d be great!

Stop worrying and start acting to diagnose the condition. Get the blood sugar test done as the first part. Later on you can consult the doctor along with your reports and decide upon the future course of management.

I m always tired. I slept 9 hours last night, then around 2 I felt really tired so I took a nap and ended up sleeping for 3 hours. Then around 9 I started feeling like I haven t slept in days. I don t drink a lot of caffeine, and I don t really eat a lot, so I can t understand what would be causing it.

Hi. My Dad is 94 y.o. He has been diabetic for at least 40 years. He has been on dialysis for the last four years, three times a week. He hasn t had a good appetite for a very long time, but he used to force himself to eat. Now he hardly eats anything; probably the only thing that is keeping him alive are the canned protein drinks. So he is getting progressively weaker and he sleeps a lot - sometimes he sleeps 16 hours or even a whole 24 hour period, then he has one better day and does get up to go to dialysis, and then the day afterward he sleeps again. My Mom has asked me to find out why he is sleeping so much and if there is anything we can do to keep him awake more (in the hopes that he will eat more and do physical therapy if he is not so sleepy). Can you please offer us any advice? Thank you!

Hi, it is well documented that I do not sleep much, about 3-4 hours daily except on sundays where I spend 8-9hours sleeping. Its been like this over 10years. I am 21years heading into 22years soon. January 2011, I started school and I am doing very well. However as of early this month, I tend to become very sleepy, almost all the time. I take vitamins very regular( iron,gape seed and for the brain). I am a semi active person, living on my own. This is a trouble some situation, because of my tight timetable, I can not afford to waste time.Thank you.
