Weird Sleep-Like Experiences During the Day

Reply Wed 29 Jan, 2020 01:48 pm
I can be working along at a project or task that requires some focus, when suddenly my mind is preoccupied by weird, really off-the-wall dreamlike thoughts having absolutely nothing to do with whatever I am working on.

It is not "daydreaming" in the sense of distraction or consciously thinking about something other than the task at hand.

It is involuntary -- it strikes me as not much different from actual night-time dreaming but with my eyes open.

When this happens, unless I get up and walk around I will nod off, eventually.

What's up with that? Have others had similar experiences?

It is weird, alarming, and annoying.

How about getting a complete checkup?

My friend had similar symptoms and was diagnosed with narcolepsy.
