HI. Is her number of hours sleeping per day increasing, or is she just shifting her sleep cycle? If it is increasing, then yes, there is some stress response causing her to be excessively tired. It can be an infection like a UTI (urinary track infection) or it can be inflammatory or neoplastic, hard to say from here. If she has a regular GP, you might call him and ask him if she should come in for a check up??? I would not take her to the ER with that type of story, however. Please get back to me to discuss.
