In brief: 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.

If addressing sleep hygiene doesn't correct your symptoms then would recommend medical evaluation.
