My son is 21 years old and cannot wake up in the morning. He does get 7-8 hours sleep but still cannot wake up. No matter what we try to get him to get up just does not work. No matter what the responsibility, such as work or college, he will more than often not get up. He sleeps through the loud ringing of the alarm clocks and telephone. When he does get up early, he will lay down after work and sleep for a few hours. However, if he is left to wake up by himself (which is late afternoon - 12+ hours sleep), he seems more refreshed.
He tells me that it bothers him to not being able to wake up... he gets frustrated with himself when he finally gets up and realizes he's missed school, work, appointments etc..
I don't think it's sleap apnea, as I never hear him snore. He had Mono as a teenager and I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Is there something that would help him wake up easily and refreshed?
Please help as I fear this will affect his life - both career and relationship whize!
