Stress is the culprit in many ailments.
Sleep problems are very common. It is important to try to relax and get your mind somewhere that is peaceful and relaxing 30-60 minutes before bedtime. Some people read or watch tv, others listen to music.You might try setting radio, stereo, phone, etc to play relaxing music for 15 minutes with auto shut off. Emerson, lake and palmer's "take a pebble" is great.
