Answer
You should first go to your regular medical man and get a complete blood count to check for mono or anemia as this is the first sign for sleepiness. If all checks out you should contact your local hospital and ask them for a referral to a sleep center.   You should get your sleep monitored and check for narcolepsy.  Narcolepsy which is the uncontrollable urge to fall alseep. Many teenagers dont even know they have it until it interferes with their schoolwork.
go to YAWN  Young americans with narcolepsy.org.   Feel free to email again.
