HI Zilian, you seem to be having good sleep if you are following the same cycle all the days. You need to say if are having sleep in day time also. How many hours you used to sleep early and what was your routine. Obstructive sleep apnea could be a reason for you to wake up frequently in order to regain your breath—sometimes resulting in number of awakenings per night, many times you may not even be aware of it ending up having excessive daytime sleep because of fatigue, feeling unrefreshed after sleeping, and daytime sleep attacks (nodding off at inappropriate or unexpected moments) at your workplace. Added to all these the stress you are going through can be a trigger. Modafinil is a central nervous system stimulant used for the treatment of narcolepsy. It is also used for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness caused by obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome and shift-work sleep disorder. It would be better to consult your doctor before you chose to take any drug for an evaluation. Keep updating your thoughts in this section. Take care.
But which doctor should I consult? Neurology?
I only sleep at night but I feel like sleeping in daytime too.
Thanks for the answer!
Hi, thanks for your reply too. You need to get an appointment with a sleep speicialist and get a sleep study done. If it is difficult then consult a Neurophysician for an evaluation. You may also try to do morning-evening walk, stretches, have nutritious diet with lot of water or other liquids, have hot shower and listen to soft music before going to bed, these can be soothing to mind and body. Please update the column on your doctor's advise. Take care.
