Insomnia: Most common causes are underlying medical problems such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, gerd and obstructive sleep apnea. Also can be secondary to poor sleep environment, medications, or other substances like coffee, energy drinks, cold medication or street drugs. A good history and physical with asleep questionnaire by your physician very important to assess the cause.
