Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, scoliosis, back problems, hypothyroidism.
I've had nights like that. I go from bed, to the computer, to the t.v. This goes on most all night till finally I can go to sleep. My husband leaves for work at 5:00 a.m. and sometimes I'm still up when he leaves! I've learned now to take Ambien and it helps me rest and go to sleep easier.
Getting no sleep will usually catch up with me and then I'll sleep most of the day and feel worse when I get up. I hope you are able to get some rest soon!
Never regret something that made you smile!

I take a half of a Unisom with my night time meds. It really seems to help. I take my night time meds about an hour before I plan to get into bed. Oh yes, I have nights like that too. When it happens I get up and make a cup of hot cocoa and a peice of toast w/peanut butter. I'm usually back in bed and asleep within an hour or so. I never play a computer game or get on the computer at all, it makes my mind too active. Instead I look for the most boring thing on TV or read.
And yes.... lack of sleep only adds to pain and anxiety.
