In brief: Sounds like BPH

You describe common symptoms of BPH or bothersome urinary symptoms caused by enlarged prostate.
Symptoms include weak stream, difficulty starting stream, hesitency, urinary frequency/urgency, nocturia. I would see your medical doctor. He will likely perform an examination of your prostate and may consider starting medication to treat your bothersome urinary symptoms.

In brief: May mean many things

Nocturia can cause a serious sleep disruption.
It can be on basis of problems of prostate, bladder, kidney, overzealous drinking, diabetes, etc. Women can haveproblem as well, so it is not always the prostate. You need a urinalysis, a measure of the amount of urine remaining after voiding, and a frequency volume log, for starters. See my video on nocturia: http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=msmebt.
