idiopathic hypersomnia

A reader (Claire) asks: "However he has been unable to diagnose or treat my particular sleep problem and I can find no info anywhere that describes my particular symptoms.I find so much research has been done in some areas but not enough in others in regards to sleep.My problem; I sleep if allowed 10hours a day but am constantly tired. 2 afternoon naps not unusual, but I don’t fall asleep randomly..."
If a sleep study (polysomnogram) is negative, you may have idiopathic hypersomnia. Consider asking your primary care doctor for a referral to a sleep specialist.
