Hi. I am a 22 yr old female and have serious issues with my sleep. I am always sleepy! I sleep great at night and great during the day! I fall alseep at the wheel and just sitting around. If I start to just zone out I fall asleep. It is not that serious to be narcolepsy. I did go and get a sleep study and nap study done and they decided idiopatic hypersomnia.

I think it may be a bit different. I just got the results of that today and decided to search the net a bit about it. I came across some other conditions such as Klein-Levins. I just wonder?

I didn't tell my doctor because I didn't think the relavance but I have a scar on my forehead from passing out at work. I just blacked out. The doctors then said there was no cause and that it was just that. I tend to also get really dizzy and feel that blacking out effect in the shower so i just sit down or lay down in there.

But with Klein-levins they talk about complusive eating, which i don't think i have. I do eat quite a bit for my size. I am 5'3 about 130 and I keep up with my husband 5'7 160ish. But that isn't that weird i know plenty of ppl that do that!

I have really REALISTIC dreams. So real that i have to ask my husband if it really happened??

I just wonder if any of you wonderful people have any suggestions on what might be going on?

Thanks a ton!
