I feel you on the 'phases'. I'm SUCH a phaser. Sometimes, for weeks, I sleep just fine. Sometimes, the simplest little noise wakes me up. And other times, I can't get to sleep to begin with. I agree with Mari, talk to your doc!
Sorry to hear you're having issues! When I'm going through a no-sleep phase, taking a hot bath, drinking 'sleepy-time' tea, and immediately lying down on the heating pad helps (somtimes). Feel better and prayers out to ya <3
