SLEEPING DISORDER

Hi everyone

My problem is my brother he is always sleeping, even if he is watching television, when he comes back from school, in the morning its hard to get up he is always late for school. What can be the problem I am kind of worried when I say he must go to the doctor he say there is nothing wrong with him, by the way he is 18 years old

Hallo Beauty
There are sleeping disorders causing excessive sleeping. See http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/narcolepsy/narcolepsy.htm
But he may also not be getting enough or even deep enough sleep at night, causing the tiredness. I suggest that he goes for a good medical checkup to exclude anemia or thyroid problems and to see whether he needs a referral to a specialist (neurologist)
