Welcome! I am battling the same issue, with little success. I suppose you've already run the gamut of sleeping pills. If you haven't, some TBI patients have good results from Remeron.
My brain injury was quite serious and my neurologist told me that he thinks it's to damaged for me to achieve REM sleep. Apparently, this happens to a considerable number of stroke patients, too.
