Have you been checked out by your Doc? It may be nothing to worry about, but why live in doubt about your concern when it's easy to resolve?
Good Luck

Hello and hope you are doing well.

You should consult a sleep specialist. Excessive daytime sleepiness can occur, due to inadequate sleep at night due to sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea. It can also be due to other disorders like narcolepsy. This sleep disorder is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, sleep paralysis, cataplexy where the person has episodes of loss of muscle function while awake, hypnagogic hallucinations and automatic behavior. I would advise you to consult a sleep specialist who would assess with first a sleep questionnaire, and then he may ask for a polysomnogram, which is an overnight sleep study as this helps to detect sleep disorders.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
