In brief: Narcolepsy

Please consult a doctor. Narcolepsy (excessive daytime sleepiness) can be successfully treated with Provigil ("promotes" "vigilance").
I would want to suggest, however, that you also consider some of your lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, hydration, mental attitude). And you might be suffering from hormonal imbalances (adrenal fatigue / thyroid dysfunction). Perhaps an endocrinologist?
