It is possible: that anxiety could make you withdraw and feel sleepy but there are many organic causes that should be explored first. Make an appointment for an evaluation by a sleep doctor or sleep center near you. Sleep disorders can adversely affect your general health and you wouldn't want it to go untreated.
