sleep problems

can aynthing like a stroke or anything else cause damage to the thalamus and prevent or cause sleep problems?? ,,,,
I had a bad episode in january . the doctors said it was a migraine with aura, it had never happened to me before and concerned me........i had numbness in face and hands ...visual disturbances and slurred speech much like a stroke but the symptoms went away they said it was probaly just a migraine......i had been taking birth control for 8 months also.....and never had anything like this before the birth control........ since then i have been having sleep problems and it is concerning me very much? i am 19 years old...... i am just concerned that there is something that might seriously be wrong because of the insomnia lasting so long?
