In brief: Restless sleep
You have to first define what is restless sleep.
If you are awakening numerous times, vs moving while awake repeatedly for comfort, vs being awakened by 3 children numerous times or the neighbor's dog barking incessantly. All of these can cause restless sleep. However, so can intrinsic sleep issues like sleep apnea. You need to see your physician or a sleep physician.
