I wake up several time a night and fall right back asleep. Always tired and nap to try to help. Dream easily. Tried new mattress and no caffeine.

In brief: Eval Needed

Sleep apnea is a very common cause of middle insomnia (awakening in the middle of the night).
It can be accompanied by obesity and snoring, although thin people can suffer from it as well. There are other causes. Being tired during the day indicates non-refreshing sleep, and requires an evaluation first by your primary physician, and then if needed with a sleep study and specialist referral.
