Recently, (past 2-3 weeks) I've been sleeping for 10+ sometimes even over 12 hours yet still, feel very exhausted and often find myself falling asleep. I don't know what to do. I don't exercise/look at my phone, computer etc. for at least 2 hours .. help!?

It could be any number of deficiencies (iron, B12, enough kcals, etc.), it could be physiological (for example, depression), it could even be symptomatic of an auto-immune disease.

I am suffering with an Eating Disorder, yet I'm over coming it pretty well, and I think I'm getting enough? Also depression may be a possibility.

It could also be that you need to exercise more outside to have more oxygen for your brain. Happens to me often if I don't go out for a walk or run at least once a day.

Another highly UNLIKELY possibility is that you have Kleine Levin syndrome, but that you depend on exactly how much you fall asleep during the day

Are you taking any medication? I used to take something (and it was why I came off it) which would send me to sleep. Even if I got some 10 hours sleep.

Yes, I am, but nothing that would alter my sleep, sertraline would be the only possible option that would.

I get this too. I'm awake any time currently between 3am and 6.30am. Annoying.

It is quite frustrating to be up half the night with little you can do.

I'm usually up at 6-6.30am, which is fine for me. But 3am is too damn early. There's only so much TV I can watch and only so much time I can waste on TSR. And it's not as if there's anywhere open.
