Edit, I have constant nerve pain in my lower legs, they twitch and do whatever the #### they like when in bed, sometimes I don't even know if my two feet are touching each other or it is the cat sat on me lol.

Try Holy Basil. I've tried valerian, skullcap, hops, chamomile, passion flower, melatonin, sleeping pills - they helped to some degree but either didn't keep me asleep or helped relax me but didn't get me to sleep. The sleeping pills were addictive and made me so sleepy I could sleep days away.

Magnesium oil? Ive never tried that but I am interested. I thought cbd was bs until my wife tried it and it helped with her hip pain more than any doctor could for a year prior. I wouldnt have believed it still if i hadnt tried it myself after being in pain from painting my office.

I had insomnia for most of my life.
Then 5 years ago a stumbled into a cure for myself.
When I lay in bed I imagine that I have a random super power. Nothing to strong. The type of power that would take some thought in order to use it properly.
I imagine what I would do. I think about what the consequences of my actions using those powers would be.
Before I know it I'm asleep.
I used to stay up all night laying in bed wishing I could sleep but now I wish I could get through one of these imagined super power scenarios before I'm sleeping.
Don't let your mind wonder. Stick to the fake story. And your mind will become tired.
