What can I do?

I recently was switched to a different doctor, we are military and that happens more often than not. My new doctor is very thorough and I love that about her, I have chronic pain that has yet to be diagnosed and she finally is sending me to an expert. However, my main issue is I have insomnia, have had sleep studies, shows I don't go into REM sleep and average about 3 hours of sleep a night. Doctor has taken me off my sleep meds, and now almost 2 weeks of very little and very restless sleep, I am a zombie. How can I get my doctor to understand I need something to help me sleep. I have spent close to $200 on several different over the counter all natural sleep aids, and nothing helps. I am to the point of collapse from exhaustion. I feel my doctor won't listen to these problems, all she wants is me off of the sleep meds and just hope I sleep. I need some help in how to talk to her so she understands this isn't working?
