Hi Sleepy, Welcome.
I do not have hypersomnolence, however I have had flus & viruses that have been the catalyst for other conditions (chronic migraine, IBS), and I have met others who have likewise had seemingly simple viruses after which they have never been the same. The migraine complex turned out to be one that is documented as being brought on by reactivation of Epstein-Barr.
Little consolation, I know, but having experienced it firsthand, I do believe you.
