Insomnia: A general physical and basic lab work is warranted. Have a complete thyroid panel done despite no goiter. Magnesium and melatonin supplements can be helpful. Alcohol can disrupt sleep significantly and it's easy to underestimate that effect. Start with sleep hygiene: same bed time, no electronics before or in bed, no caffeine after 5pm, dark/ quiet room. If above not working, see a psychiatrist.
