What are symptoms of non-24-hour-sleep-wake disorder?

ANSWER

When you have Non-24 you feel sleepy during the day and have trouble falling asleep at night.

Since your sleep schedule moves around the clock, you may feel normal for days and weeks at a time. But as your bedtime pattern shifts, you'll go back to having problems in getting to sleep at night.
