In brief: Early awakenings

There are a number of possibilities, but one of the most common causes for early awakenings is obstructive sleep apnea.
In many cases, osa patients have one or more brief awakening before the early awakening.

In brief: May reasons

Insomnia is a complicated topic and there are many reasons one may wake up early.
When discussing early morning sleep awakening or difficulty with maintenence, my first thought is depression. Other causes can include sleep apnea or distractions in the room or medications. A primary physician or pulmonologist can take a detailed sleep history to help one pinpoint the problem.
