What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

When someone complains of abnormal drowsiness, the healthcare provider will ask questions, such as:

  • how long it has been present
  • whether it occurs all day every day or only on some days
  • whether it is getting worse, better, or staying the same
  • the number of hours of sleep the person gets every night and whether there is any trouble with sleeping
  • the amount of stress in the person's life
  • the amount of activity or exercise a person engages in
  • the person's diet
  • any other symptoms the person is having, such as weight loss, fever, or confusion
  • what medications, drugs, or herbs a person takes, if any
  • what other medical problems a person has, if any
