In brief: See your doctor.

You may have a sleep disorder, ranging from disordered sleep cycles to obstructive sleep apnea.
You need to see your doctor for an exam to see if there is any anatomic cause; you may also need a sleep study, which your doctor can order if indicated.

In brief: Evaluation

A sleep evaluation is in order to see if your sleep is disordered and causing miniawakenings that ruin the quality of your sleep.
Also, many people have built up a sleep debt (required sleep that was not obtained) and even with good sleep you may feel tired till all this sleep is "paid back.".

In brief: Maybe sleep disorder

You should see a sleep specialist to get this evaluated.
There are a number of possible sleep disorders that may be present, and he/she can fully evaluate this. Most important: don't drive sleepy. It is like driving drunk.
