If you are sleeping too much during the day and cannot control your sleep then this can be a symptom of concussion. However, it can also be a symptom of traumatic brain injury. So, it is very important to get this re-evaluated. You may even need a MRI of brain at this stage. Please consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
