You also say thHello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Difficulty in sleeping (known as "insomnia" ) can be due to a variety of causes. Some of the problems causing insomnia are:
- Stress
- Anxiety
- Depression
- Poor sleep habits
- Other medical problems, chronic pain, etc.

In your case, it appears that your sleep problem may be related to your anxiety. What started off as a direct consequence of anxiety, could have slowly got re-inforced and hence continued to persist. Poor sleep habits often get reinforced and become difficult to cahnge after some time.

Please consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further management of your insomnia.

Wish you all the best.
