Ask the Nurse

Lately, I have been falling asleep for no known reason. I will be sitting watching tv and nod off. Do you know what could cause this?

Unexplained daytime somnolence and those who fall asleep very easily can have an undiagnosed sleep disorder. It is important to see your physician and get an evaluation, which may include a sleep study to look for sleep apnea and narcolepsy.
