A sleep disturbance: Get a consultation with a doctor certified in sleep medicine. She may have you do a sleep study to get an idea of what is going on. It is important to get good sleep for the normal functioning of the body.

Anything: You can have sleep problems from snoring, apnea, restless legs, poor sleep hygeine, anxiety/depression, napping during the day, night seizures, noises in the neighborhood waking you up, bed bugs, waking up to use the bathroom, acid reflux, allergies, or any number of things. I recommend seeing a doctor to get checked out.
