    I usually sleep at 10:30 am + 3:00pm for ten seconds a few times, in a lesson, I continue writing etc, but it's just nonsense. But, today I was really tired, I fell asleep from 5pm and just woke up (2am), my parents let me sleep. I usually fall asleep to and from school, and sleep for a few seconds in lessons, but today was something else. I can't go to sleep right now as I'm hallucinating, have the flu, and I just fell down the stairs as my knees gave way (probably the biggest reason eh )

    I've always had a problem with staying awake and randomly going weak (blurry vision, weak knees and I slur a word) but today was really bad (because of flu?).

    Does anyone know what is causing this? (It's been a lesser version of this for a few months) When I was a kid I used to collapse when I was sad/in pain and had tests for it but nothing came up, might be relevant idk.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think I will as my temp is jumping between 37 and 38.5 (using an accurate thermometer from hospital, my mum works as a physio so she has one). I'm not sure about overactive Thyroid but I'll see, thanks for the help.

    Speak to your doctor. I'd suggest since it is rather bad at the moment you call to make an on the day apointment (if your surgery offers that) since it is serious.

    If you feel like looking things up in the meantime a few things spring to my mind. It could be something like diabeties, kidny or liver issues etc, but since you had similar issues as a kid epilepsy and narcolepsy and other longer term conditions sound more likely to me.
    That said I don't know much about that sort of thing.

    Anyway deffinately see your doctor, and prefrably soon.
