While this is not a guarantee, it just may help... Try taking 5 to 10 mg. of melatonin. It's an over the counter/no prescription sleep aid. It definitively works for many people, but like everything, not for all. You may want to pick some up at a local drug store/Walmart, etc. I wish you the very best. So sorry about the pain & lack of sleep!!
