Hi,

You have features of excessive daytime sleepiness. Most likely it is a part of sleep disorder. The common causes are narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea. A sleep study would confirm the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
