Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that your problem is related to thyroid hormone disturbance. The difficulty in falling asleep might be related to anxiety or a heavy meal. You can take melatonin supplements to help you. Getting your thyroid profile evaluated will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
