Your concern is?: What do you ask? We all have variations on the amount of sleep we need each night. You are getting a normal amount, 7:30 hours nightly. Would you like to "move bedtime and awake time fwd?" your circadian rhythms are set over last year.You need to move bedtime fwd about !hr nightly. You will then be in synch. Asleep on couch fom 11pm--to 1:30 am doesn't sound like narcolepsy.See a sleep expert.
