Help with severe Insomnia?

For the past 2 years i have had trouble with my sleep, but more so in particularly this past year. It takes me up to and over and hour to fall asleep and even then on average i only get about 5 hours sleep on a good night, and am tired constantly throughout the day. This past year it seems worse as its effecting my eating habits and mood. I tend to forget to eat anything because i just don't get that feeling of being hungry and my moods seem to have completely flipped, I'm more short-tempered and emotional. I have tried everything to help me sleep better. less caffeine, not using technology before bed, setting up a sleep routine, relaxing before sleep. Nothing seems to work, and i'm a bit dubious about going to my GP because i don't know how they could help me.

Are you on medication?  Many affect sleep over time.  Have you tried melatonin?  Or homeopathy?  They are virtually risk free and cost very little and if they work, great, if they don't, no loss and no habit.  Melatonin 1mg is about the right dose.
