you need an overnight sleep study (polysomnography) done at an overnight sleep clinic.  As your primary care doctor for a referral.  You are not getting quality sleep - the study will diagnosis your sleep problem - it could be anything as there are over 80+ known sleep disorders!!!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Excessive sleepiness is the symptom of a sleep disorder called Narcolepsy. This sleep disorder is characterized by excessive day time sleepiness, sleep paralysis, cataplexy where the person has episodes of loss of muscle function while awake, hypnogogic hallucinations and automatic behavior. Also, Problems with breathing (Obstructive sleep apnea), certain medications, restless leg movements and sleep walking/talking could contribute to excessive sleepiness and tiredness. You will need to consult your primary care physician, who may schedule you for a polysomnogram (sleep test) to rule out sleep disorders and initiate appropriate therapy.

Hope This Helped and Do Keep Us Posted.
