Hi ....
I have a strange issue .. when ever i work out(running and weights) , i dont get sleep.While working out for long (40 min +) i get a feel of my legs being shaky and reaction from my body is as if im going to fall.
Post few hours of my workout i feel quiet a variation in my body like dizzness,uneasiness.In those times i get a bit afraid and have lots of water and eat fruits or anything i get to eat. Somehow i struggle and sleep .

Thanks for the query.
Intensive exercises results in increased production of cortisol and adrenaline which results in loss of sleep specially if these exercises are being done 3 to 4 hours prior to your sleep time.
Another factor responsible for loss of sleep is viewing of TV before going to sleep.
Do the following...
Do your exercises at least 6 hours before your sleep time.
Take proper fluids to take care of electrolyte loss.
Avoid viewing TV before going to bed.

I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

2.What is the reason for legs shaking while working out post 25 mins.
3. what is the reason for uneasiness and variation in body post 4 to 6 hours of workout ?
4.Am i buring lot of vital minerals ? or is there any inherent problem within my body ? if so how to find out?

It is good that you have shifted your timing from evening to morning.
As far as your shaking of legs and other symptoms are concerned,there could be some deficiencies in your body like Iron,calcium,VIT B 12,VIT D etc.
Get tested for them.
In the mean timeĀ 
Keep taking plenty of fluids
Take more of fresh fruits and green vegetables.
Avoid junk foods and colas.
Avoid alcohol,smoking or any other substance of abuse,if taking it.
Take some dry fruits as they are packed with important minerals.
Take some VITB complex daily.

I don't think your acidity can cause these symptoms.However anxiety may aggravate your symptoms.
Just relax,get tested as advised above and eat healthy.
Soon you shall be all right.
Best of luck
