Yes there is! You should not be tired after sleeping that number of hours. This means there is a problem with the quality of your sleep. You will need to be assessed by a sleep doctor, and you will rpobably need some sleep tests.

Hi there i think I sleep too much because there isn' t a day that passes by without having a wonderful or nightmare dreams. Even in the afternoon if I have chance of taking a nap I will wake up with a dream. I sometimes get muscle pull when I get to bed. At work at times I feel like sleeping only for 10 mins then for sure I know I will get better. But of course one can' t sleep at work! I sleep for 10 hours at the most. Is it because I am lazy or have sleep disorder? Please help Mr. Expert! Thank you
