It could be your thyroid if you think that you shouldn't be getting tired.

You could also make sure you get proper nutrition.
Get exercise.
Eliminate junk food.

All of these things could cause you to be tired.

For ideas about overcoming being sleepy read this page.

Proper rest

Highway Hypnosis
by: Steve A. Mangram Sr.

This is a good question. As a OTR driver (ret) i found that if i was driving across Nebraska I would be super sleepy within the first hour, and here's the kicker, it would only happen when I was headed west bound, east bound i was fine.

My friend a fellow truck said that it was probably because sub consciously pre programed my brain to be bored and so my brain would basically just shut down to conserve energy.

Is it just when driving
by: Hervy

You might want to get your thyroid checked out. I was also wondering if it only occurred when you drive?
