Is it insomnia?
Hello. I believe I have insomnia, but I am not quite sure. Let me tell you how this thing works:
Around 9 o'clock at night, i am ready to go to sleep. I am tired. But i cannot fall asleep.
It's 11 o'clock at night, and I have been laying here for the past couple hours, but still cannot fall asleep.
And so on, and so on.
There are some nights i get no sleep at all, others i only get a few hours.

Could it be insomnia? or something else?

Stress can cause insomnia. Your mind doesn't stop thinking.

A few things I've tried to help myself, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't:

Walking in the evening
Lavender essential oil on my wrists
Warm bath or foot bath with Epsom Salt
Magnesium taken orally
No computer or Phone 1 hour before bed

If you have other symptoms besides insomnia:
Like fatigue, headaches, body aches, dizziness, rapid heartbeat
Check you Vitamin D with blood work.

Yes, you will not get sleep until your mind is thinking. It can also due to stress and tiredness.
Keep your room cool, dark.
Make your room noise free, away for all the distraction TV, mobile and laptop.
Try hot baths, it help me too.
