Rate Your Sleepiness Severity

Epworth Sleepiness Scale Test

This is the standard series of questions that are widely used to see how your sleep affects your daily life.

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to feeling just tired? This refers to your usual way of life in recent times. Even if you have not done some of these things recently try to work out how they would have affected you. Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:

0 = no chance of dozing
1 = slight chance of dozing
2 = moderate chance of dozing
3 = high chance of dozing
Situation Chance of dozing
Sitting and reading
