Constant sleepy

Hello

I almost always want to sleep, even after I sleep like 10hrs at night, I still cant stay awake for more then 11 to 12 hrs. I have a stomach problem (IBS) and together with this sleeping problem, extends my day for sometimes 3+ days as I refuse to go to bed without exercising. I end up taking long naps in between and it messes up my circadian clock totaly. I just cant get rid of this sleepy feeling all the time, and sometimes I sleep more the half the day. Even if I go into a new day it just start all ovr again as there is just not enough time in a day for me.

I cant find any meds that I can take (did some reserch) so far and it like its getting worse.
