Hello.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query.

Going through a stressful situation in your life can cause sleep problems.
Sleeping three hours at nigh for three days ,won't cause any major problem for you but insomnia for a long period of time can cause you health problems and affecting your daily function.
You should try to manage the stress in your life, try to relax .Don't think about your problem when you go to sleep.
Avoid drinking coffee or drinks that contain caffeine.Eat at least three hours before going to sleep.Taking a hot shower before sleeping and drinking a chamomile tea can help.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you need further help.

Kind regards,
