I was recently diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnolence, and it's still unclear to me whether that is an actual diagnosis or my doctor not being able to figure out why I am always so tired (I did not enter REM during the daytime sleepiness test). Is there any physiological or neurological basis for the diagnosis of idiopathic hypersomnolence, like there is for narcolepsy? Are there any medically accepted treatments for it besides stimulants (which mask the daytime symptoms but not the excessive sleepiness at night)?
