He will go all week complaining about how he can’t sleep, he’ll get about 4 hours of sleep a night. Then other days he will sleep for nearly 20 hours. There is clearly something wrong, should he go see a physician or is it just a bad sleeping habit?
Sleep disorders come in many sizes and colors and should be taken seriously. Best to undergo a sleep study to determine what’s happening. Be sure to find a certified sleep center with board certified sleep medicine physicians. Further educational information in link below.

Is she gaining weight, losing hair, have dry skin? If she does you may want to get her thyroid hormones checked out. Sleepiness is a symptom of that, or she could possibly have narcolepsy.
