I would get bloodwork done, I had a siiliar issue and it turned out to be a vitamin deficiency (even though we eat pretty healthy and I take a multi- it was a vitamin that wasn’t in my multi).

That’s how I was when I was having deep depression prior to my first nervous breakdown. Have you been having any mental issues lately?

Is there anything in your life making you anxious?  I struggled with falling asleep (but could easily sleep for 12 hours) when I had anxiety.  I didn’t even realize that was what was going on until I saw a therapist.  His advice that helped the most with sleeping, cutting out caffiene completely for a month.  He said I could add it back later if I wanted to.  3 years later, I consume a very small amount of caffiene but the days I do have it (even if it’s in the morning) I struggle to sleep.

Talk to your doctor. You may have a sleep disorder but ruling out other underlying conditions is a good idea as well.

I used to have major problems falling asleep too – It was even harder once my FI fell asleep and started snoring lol.  I started drinking sleepytime tea and it did work for me; however, I don’t really like the idea of having to rely on something like that to get me to sleep.  Then, I started getting up earlier once I went back to work in August (I’m a teacher) and my work hours changed to 7-3 so given my commute, I have to wake up at 5 or 5:30am.  Now I have no problems going to sleep at night and I think it’s purely because I’m exhusted for having been awake for 15 hours and working for half of them.  

I know it sounds really silly and almost like this would be too easy of a solution, but have you tried getting up earlier than you’re used to?  It worked like a charm for me, when I was thinking I had some major insomnia issues.
