sleepy and tired during the day

Hi, for the last 8 weeks I have been feeling sleepy and tired during the day, this comes and goes and last for about 30minutes to an hour irresistabely my eyes close themselves and my head feels heavy.

At night i do sleep 7-8 hours undisturbed, i hardly drink coffee and energy stimulants like redbull. I had seen a GP and tested my urine and blodd but found nothing. Could this be from driving? cos it started just after getting a car. Please help as this is affecting my work.
