Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Kindly let us know what change in your system you are appreciating at night?

The symptoms of nervousness & inability to sleep can be due to various reasons like:
1. Any fluctuation in the blood pressure & blood sugar levels.
2. Inadequate hydration status & electrolyte balance of the body.
3. Deficiencies of certain nutrients like Iron, Vitamin B 12, Folic acid, etc. which interferes with blood formation
4. Hormonal & metabolic causes
5. Stress

In your post you have not mentioned about any history of systemic conditions like Hypertension, Diabetes, Hypo/Hyperthyroidism or any stressful incidence.
Under such circumstances, investigations like complete blood count, estimation of blood pressure & blood sugar levels and Thyroid profile will be helpful to rule out any pathological cause for the symptoms.

And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as:
1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods
2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration
3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc.
4. Avoid smoking & alcohol.
5. Keep away stress..think positive.
6. Exercise regularly & practice meditation.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Please let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
