In brief: Discussion with Dr.

Insomnia has many pieces.
It can be problem getting to sleep, or staying asleep.Many problems cause sleep disturbance such as depression(a medical diagnosis unrelated to sadness), sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, or even spouse abuse(getting kicked during sleep).Talk this over with your dr and arrive at an accurate reason for your insomnia.
