Is excessive sleepiness a symptom of menopause?

When I turned 40, I noticed I got a major surge of energy, and experienced endurance I'd never had in my younger years. But about a year or so ago, I noticed I tend to be excessively sleepy during the day, even after having an energy drink. I remember a really vital woman telling me she slowed after age 50, when she went through menopause. I even remember her falling asleep as I showed her a photo album! Is this what's happening to me? (I'm 54, and going through it.) If so, what can I do about it?

    Wow - scary! Both my grandmothers had diabetes. I HOPE this isn't it! I haven't gained weight recently, and I've been on a regular vitamin regimen since my mid-30s. I also exercise regularly. I'll get my blood sugar tested, just in case. Thanks!
