Are you getting enough iodine? I suffered insomnia for 30 because no one diagnosed the problem. Every quack thought my problem was psychological. I knew it wasn't and then discovered (by an accident of diet, and then deduction) that I was severely deficient in iodine. Took iodine and finally slept. I have no patience for the easy diagnosis of "it is all in your head." That is lazy medicine. Ultimately I had to cure myself and am still angry about it.
