Hi!
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!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
