I have problems with sleeping, I sleep very fast but I wake up between 1-5 AM in the morning wondering why I woke up and I be fully aware. I have searched articles or so but didn't find anything. I am really concerned if its bad or no? Is there a solution for waking up all the time each day? Maybe insomnia? please help me out. I don't want to take pills or so.

I take pills that help me sleep and there is nothing wrong with people that need something to help them get off to sleep, or to keep them a sleep to have a restful night. I feel that there are times where I feel really tired and yet when I go to bed I can not sleep or stay a sleep once I do finally get off to sleep.

You should be getting 8 hours of sleep a night. If your sleep patterns are sporadic such as sleeping a couple hours, then waking, then sleeping again, then this is a problem. Insomnia is when you can't fall asleep at all, so it's not that. Sometimes, a disruption in the sleep pattern is a symptom that something else is going on. There are many conditions that would cause your sleep patterns to change like sleep apnea for instance or other types of pulmonary conditions. Maybe let your doctor know what's going on with you and let him instruct you on what to do next. Feel better soon. :)

There might be something in your surroundings that wakes you up at that time. I used to have something similar to this and I realised that my neighbour left their house at around that time every morning, and what was actually waking me up was their front gate closing when they drove out of the road. One I had worked this out, I managed to ask them whether they could do it more quietly and they said that they would, which has meant that I am now able to have a full night's sleep without having to worry about waking up at a certain time again.
