This sounds like you need to first speak to your doctor to understand if there is a medical issue.
If you have already done that.
Try counting your breath as a starting meditation practice.
Everytime you can't sleep, just sit up and do 10 minutes of breath counting and then lie back down to sleep.
You can even try it while lying down.
