Falling Asleep

for the last week now i keep falling asleep in work, i have no idea why this is happening but its starting to worry me as i felt my self drifting whilst driving this afternoon (10 min drive) i have a constant headache and it doesnt go, not even with meds.

I have a good amount of sleep 6 - 8 hours a night.

Even writing this i feel drowsy. Ive never felt like this before so its not a usual thing for me. Plus my day to day routine asnt changed.

Help!

Pains temporary, Prides forever.

    Would definitely agree with that.

    I mate, i have a similar sort of thing going on atm.

    Just been feeling absolutly nackered, no appetite etc...

    Even an hour after waking i some times have to go back to bed, like today.

    I didgo to the docs last wekek, but things seemed to be in order


    I think it may be down to exam stress or something

    Sorry thats not much help, but go and see your doc!

    Same for me, i'm studying at the moment(Revision) and i had to stop as i'm falling asleep and can't focus at all.

    Always seems to happen around 3-4PM also! No idea wtf is going on, coffee didn't help.

    Thing is, i wake up at about 6PM and am WIDE AWAKE from that point.

    caffeine has a long half life 6hrs I think, so you may be in a vicious cycle

    get more sunlight- it releases some kind of hormone which prevents drowsyness

    walk at breakfast, walk at lunch etc etc

    go to bed at same time consistently every day and experiement with how much sleep you need
