Hi, There must be venous stagnation in the legs which give rise to pain. Apply any analgesic gel and give hot water fomentation. Keep your foot end raised by keeping one or two pillow below the leg, while you sleep. This will help in easy back flow of the blood and you pain reduces. Go for walk daily for 45 mins.

All your problems are due to indigestion. Start consuming light food material only. Stay away from fast food heavy meals and snacks. Eat healthy food material like fruits. Green vegetables etc. Remember ibs requires time to cure and only ayurvedic herbs can cure it. So consult.

There are some guidelines for insomnia or in ability to sleep. Avoid stimulating food and drinks 2-4 hours before bedtime. Eg. Tea, coffee, cold drinks. Don't do mentally stimulating work before bedtime- solving puzzles, playing interesting mobile games. Recent studies stay the high exposure to screens has disrupted our natural circadian rhythm. Using blue light in mobiles and other devices decreases this effect. Ensure adequate physical work during day. Learn to deal with stress. Stress and anxiety can be major detergent to sleep. If theye guidelines don't help, discuss with a friend or family or consult a psychologist or physician.

Are you sure that she has this anxiety only at night? If so she is afraid of the darkness, or of being alone, or of death. Any which way you look at it anxiety is fear based. If she meets with a counselor she could easily identify the reason for the anxiety. She may do some of the following to get better sleep. For the medication she will need to meet a psychiatrist in person for a prescription. She should not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether she sleeps or not. She must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if she does not get sleep. If she does not get sleep, she could just lie down and if she has a bed lamp (or you could get her one) let her lie down and read something light but not exciting. Her eyes will tire and she will fall asleep. If she likes she may also put on the light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether she is a visual or auditory person, she may watch TV in a lying down position until she feels sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If she is one of them, please do so). Place the head side of her bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on her body or in the room, or on her sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in her bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, let her lie down on her left ear as much as possible. Do not let her sleep directly under an overhead fan. She must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever she eats in the other meals, let her have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep she may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before she sleeps at night. If she knows Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then let her practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before she sleeps.

FALLING ASLEEP TECHNIQUE

If you often struggle to fall asleep and roll in your bed for hours, here is a simple technique
The technique is simple and has showed to be very effective in falling asleep in less than 1 minute.
How to perform this technique:

Take the position that is most comfortable for you: sitting, standing, laying. If you are sitting hold your back in a straight position. Put the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth and hold it there during this exercise.

Breathe through your lips so you make a sound similar to blowing wind.

Breathe on your nose 4 times.

Hold your breath and count to 7.

Inhale through your mouth and count to 8 before you exhale.

This is one cycle.

Repeat this cycle 4 times. You may fall asleep before you end up your last repetition.

Note: Exhaling should be twice longer than inhaling. This is why it is important to hold the relation 4-7-8 during the exercise. Set the counting during breathing.

This technique in moments of stress in order to handle your emotions better and have balanced reactions. You can perform this exercise twice a day, once in the morning and one more time in the evening.

How does this exercise work?

Anxiety and stress pump up more adrenaline in your bloodstream. It makes your heart pump faster and your breaths shorter and faster. Doing the 4-7-8 exercise prolongs your breathing and makes you inhale more oxygen. And when you hold your breath, the oxygen spread through your body.
Controlling you exhaling will release the carbon dioxide out of your system.

You will feel your heart slowing down and become sleepy because of the sedative effect of this technique...
Be blessed...
