Our expert says:
Waking up at night is normal. What should happen, though, is that you should then be able to get back to sleep within about 20 minutes. However, the pattern you describe is also typical of depression. If you think you are depressed, ask your doctor for something to help you with that. Otherwise you may need to be referred to a doctor with experience in sleep problems.
