falling asleep while driving

Hi, im only 17 years old and over the past few months i have had trouble with staying awake behind the wheel. it happens mostly at night or in the morning. i've tried everything from blasting a.c. to having someone talk to me, and the urge to sleep still happens. i've been fortionate enough to not have an accident yet. and although i dont have any medicals conditions that im aware of i still feel awfully young to be having this happen. i get good amounts of sleep too, so i dont think that has anything to do with it.. if someone would help me out that would be fantastic cause this is really starting to scare me and i want to take action before something bad happens.

First of all, stop driving. Then make an appointment to see your medical doctor. If you have no obvious medical issues, then see a sleep medicine doctor.
