    See a doctor. Might be an undiagnosed condition. Might also be your diet. Do you go to sleep right after dinner or any meal?

    If you don't have a known medical condition then you might have an undiagnosed one.  But also your diet may just be lousy.

    If your diet is rubbish then improve it, exercise daily too and go to bed at a regular time each night and set an alarm to wake up after 8 hours and force yourself to get up and start the day with a glass of fresh juice and a piece of bread.

    You should get checked out by a doctor.
