In brief: Provigil

I don't ordinarily turn to medication as the treatment-of-choice for different psychiatric and medical conditions; but, if other causes for your excessive daytime sleepiness (i.
e., your narcolepsy) have been ruled out, then i might want to suggest that you seriously consider taking Provigil (which stands for "promotes vigilance"). It might well prove extremely effective for you. Good luck!

In brief: Narcolepsy

Episodic napping can be caused by narcolepsy.
Other symptoms would include sleep paralysis, cataplexy, and hallucinations occurring at twilight (transition to sleep). Sleep is typically non-restorative which can promote headaches. Other sleep disorders - including primary insomnia, apnea and restless leg syndrome syndrome - could also prompt excessive somnolence.
