> Do you ever nod off during the day, and if so, do you dream before you close your eyes? I am not sure of the technical term, but this can be a symptom of narcolepsy.

The REM sleep attacks are just...uh, REM sleep attacks.

The waking dreams are hypnagogic hallucinations (I have them sometimes during the daytime; having them before falling asleep at night is within the normal range).

> Do you snore? Typical characteristic of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea syndromes definitely can cause daytime drowsiness (though not all snorers have sleep apnea).

>It can be hard to tell how well one sleeps at night. I felt I was sleeping well until the sleep study showed that I only had 15 minutes of REM sleep.

Almost every effective antidepressant suppresses REM sleep to one degree or another, so this doesn't say much if you were on an antidepressant at the time!
