Possible sleeping problem in toddler

Patient

Q: My 3 year old daughter used to sleep well at night but for the last year she has been giving me a hard time about sleeping. She has the same bedtime as before but now she refuses to sleep. I put her in bed at 9 pm and she comes out of her room numerous times and plays in her room for at least 2 hours if not longer. She also becomes very grumpy, impatient, and whiny during the day but refuses a nap. If she does finally take a nap she wakes up miserable and cries for everything. I was wondering if she may have a sleeping problem. It is possible that she has adhd although Dr said its too soon to test her. Also my daughters father, his mother, myself, my sister (restless leg syndrom) and my father have sleeping issues
