    It means you should sleep less smile

    No but seriously, it means you might even have a thyroid problem. A cousin would be perennially tired and it was later found out he had a hormonal balance problem caused by a malfunctioning thyroid.

    Depends.  If it is a one off occassion then you may be very tired.

    If this is regularly recurring, then I would suggest seeing your doctor. Many illnesses manifest themselves with sleeping long periods including thyroid problems, sleep disorders, and diabetes.

    Too much sleep is as unhealthy as not enough sleep. It can be fatal if you ignore this symptom.

    It means you slept way to long....8 to 9 hours is plenty!  Get up....get moving....get some exercise and you'll feel like a new person!

    You slept too long. Too little sleep and you will feel tired. Too much sleep and you will feel tired. It could also mean that you are depressed. People who are depressed will sleep a long time and still feel tired the next day. Or it could be some other underlying health issue.

    If I sleep too long it is usually because I am depressed and prefer being asleep to dealing with waking life. Plenty of people who suffer depression are like this.

    It could be sleep apnoea that is causing the problem. This is when the airway is compromised during sleep, which reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches the bloodstream and therefore the brain.

    The symptoms of this is waking feeling very sluggish and taking a while to 'come to'. After an hour or so, as the oxygen level normalises after waking, you will feel 'normal' again.

    The longer you sleep in fact, the worse you'll feel as the longer you will have gone with a low oxygen level. This condition has a negative long term affect on the cardio-vascular system.

    There are tests that can be done to establish if sleep apnoea is the problem. Sleep studies can be performed that measure your oxygen level during sleep. Treatments are available which include using an oxygen mask that delivers oxygen under pressure as you sleep. Speak to your doctor.
