Getting to sleep is a real pain.

BEING in pain and worrying are the main reasons for Britons not getting a good night's sleep, says a survey.

Aching limbs are the top reason why we can't nod off, annoying 36 per cent of the population.

Other complaints include job worries at 24 per cent, relationship problems at 15 per cent - while nearly eight million put their insomnia down to midnight snacks.

In the 16-24 age group, exam worries top the list but with 25-44-year- olds, career fears are the No1 concern.

And 2.75million adults say they are scared of the dark.
