Specific: There are no 'non-specific' hormonal imbalances. For insomnia related to specific endocrine problems you diagnose and treat the underlying cause: thyroid disease is treated with thyroid medication, etc..Females with insomnia related to menopausal changes can use hormone replacement therapy.

May not be : Many people look to a "hormonal problem" for what are really issues with anxiety or mood. If hot flashes awaken you it could be shifting hormones, but kina young for that. You may need treatment for anxiety; if headaches are occurring regurly, may be clinching teeth at night, tired, may be another mechanism. These require analysis but are generally easy to solve.
