I have always suffered from daytime tiredness. I go to sleep around 10 pm and wake up around 11 am. I feel exhausted all the time and can sleep at any time. I feel very weak as well. I go to a psychiatrist to get 30 mg of Adderall XR and it does nothing. I have even upped the dosage to 60 mg. Again, nothing. This daytime sleepiness is preventing me from getting a job and is now affecting my personal relationship. My boyfriend thinks I'm just being lazy. I'm not. I have no energy.

Nowadays, I do sleep at least 11 to 12 hours a day which was not so in my past life, and I feel always exhausted and feel sleepy all the time. I would sleep deeply even if I just lie down anywhere, and mostly at daytime. This hypersomnia is affecting my personal life.

I usually sleep for an average 16 to 17 hours these, on waking I still have the urge to sleep again. I feel like body is quite weak having no energy, I am a PhD scholar from last week I didn't go to my department and that affects my work tremendously.
