    Awww I see, hmmmmm If it's been that long, I'm guessing you've tried all the options you can think of.

    I'm just tryna think of things that would work for me that might help you, so sorry if I'm useless to you. Having warm milk with honey, working out (any sort of exercise makes me tired XD), turning off all electronics 1 hour before you go sleep (Read something), make sure when you got to bed, it's your bed only as in.... that's exclusively for sleeping (Don't watch TV in your bed, don't play games in your bed etc.)

    I know all these seem generic but hopefully there's one thing you haven't tried. Really hope things get better for you though
    I work out a lot and really heavy too...It never tires me, actually it does the opposite throughout the day( and night). It’s really strange.

    I do use my bed to study, play games, watch youtube,etc...maybe I need to change that.

    Are you drinking a lot of caffeine drinks? If you are then don't they always keep you up. Try drinking warm milk in the evening or decaf tea.

    If you can't not use your phone in the night just decrease the amount of time you spend using it.

    Try milk
    Whenever I drink milk I get some spots. Might be lactose intolerant so I stopped drinking it.

    I am assuming it is because of you constantly being focused on a screen, AKA your phone. Try putting it away after 11 or 1 hour before you wanna sleep. Gonna sound real cliche here but try read a book before. Gets you tired much quicker. Might not work instantly because of the different pattern your body would need to get used to.
    I forgot to mention. You really need to make it part of your daily routine rather than making it look like a task you need to complete every night.

    I can sort of relate, my sleeping pattern is non-existent. I sleep when I need to unless I've had a big night on the sauce. I'm used to it, can work around it. been this way for about 15 years, ha,
