In brief: Depends on cause

Neurologists can help with some sleep probs, like restless leg syndrome for ex, but the answer to your questions depends on the underlying cause.
Although meds can be used to treat sleep & fatigue probs, it'd be better to first work on good sleep hygiene for ex. Or if your fatigue comes from anemia, tx should be aimed at that. If it comes from depression, tx aims at that, etc.
