This is really getting out of hand.

I am falling sleeping in my chair, every night.

It has become so frequent that it is no longer an event, but a process with predictable iterations.

"Dozing off" is not even an accurate term. In fact, I'm going to edit the title of this post and change it to "Konking Out". It's like, "Huh?" and I awaken, and at least an hour has passed, tonight I think it was two or three.

This happens enough to make it a regular nightly event, and I don't like it.

Not only do I dislike it, but this WebMD Article Here reports that it might increase the chance of a stroke.

Has anyone else personally experienced this, and fixed it ?

Google does not lead to very good answers here.

Or, quite possibly, I don't know how to ask the right question.

Just exactly what ARE the factors which increase the likelihood of this ?
