    "my another problem"

    I've read that it's wrong to say "my another problem" because "another" and possesives are mutually exclusive.
    But how can I express the meaning of "My another problem is that I can't sleep" in a correct way?

    Re: "my another problem"

    If you have more than one other problem , then you can say, "Another problem I have' or 'Another problem of mine'.
