What should I do about feeling sleepy during the afternoon...

Posted , 3 users are following.

I feel sleepy all the time but mainly in the afternoon. Sometimes I can push through it and sometimes I take a nap but that doesn't really help either

      I totally understand! Half those tests do not prove a thing; although some do. Anyway, I guess that sometimes there is not a test to determine what could be wrong. Over the years, I feel I have been misdiagnosed many times (that would actually make a good discussion forum).

    So many people cannot sleep, so I have learned to appreciate how easily I can fall asleep, and how I can sleep solidly! If you are able, take the nap; why not? If you need to stay up, try caffeine.
