<h2>Excessive Sleepiness Quiz</h2>

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations. In contrast to feeling just tired? This refers to your usual way of life in recent times. Even if you have not done some of these things recently, try to work out how they would have affected you. Use the following scale and CIRCLE the most appropriate number for each situation:

0 = would never doze 2 = moderate chance of dozing
1 = slight chance of dozing 3 = high chance of dozing
Situation Chance of Dozing

Total Score:
If your total is above 10, you are considered to be more sleepy than normal and may have a sleep disorder. (Scores of 10 or below do not rule out a sleep disorder and in fact, those with snoring, mild sleep apnea and insomnia, frequently have scores of 10 or below).
