I'm right here in the same boat...no sleep due to pain & stress.

Omg i went through this last week, been recovering. I think my body finally crashed on its own when it couldn't take it anymore.
I do know I've been angry at the pain, making me unable to relax ever. Once I accepted it, I slept.

Have you tried things to help you get tired? Tea, reading book, no technology ๐Ÿ˜‰, yoga, meditation, deep breathing, writing, Heating pad, soothing music.

Also maybe turn off all your electronics, especially phone & ipad.

Good luck!
