Our expert says:
My first concern is about the quality of your sleep. It sounds as though you are spending enough time in bed, but if the quality of the sleep is not good, then you will not get the benefit of the sleep.
The most common cause (about 10% of the population!) is a breathing problem during sleep, but there are other causes as well. This should be looked into by a sleep doctor. I am confident the problem can be sorted out, and it is most certainly not "all in the mind"!
