The 21-Yr-Old Student Who Can Sleep Up To Three Weeks At A Time

A university student has told how she suffers from a rare syndrome which means she sleeps for weeks at a time - and even napped through her exams.

Rhoda Rodriguez-Diaz, 21, from Leicester, has 'sleeping Beauty syndrome' and can nap for up 22 hours a day, only waking in a dream-like trance to eat junk food, drink and go to the toilet.

At its worst her sleeping episodes can last three weeks, and it meant she failed the second year of university after she slept through her crucial end-of-year exams.
