Default Initial 5 to 10 mins of sleep being disturb

Maybe its just me but the first couple minutes of sleep if I get disturbed and slightly awake my body takes it like I've slept for days might as well. That's why I'm posting this at 3.30 in the morning for gosh darn it all. After lying in bed trying to get to sleep for an hour.

I guess my mind thinks a lion was coming by and needs the alertness. Doesn't it know the only trouble I get now a days is from other PT members tearing me a new one. ,, naw your all a bunch of pussy cats.

When I drove rock bands on tour I would stay up for 3-4 days straight, crash hard for 2 days then do it all over again, for just about 5 years this is how my sleep was.

The shortest tour about 6 months, longest 2 years. Never saw home, didnt sleep in my own bed.

I woke up with a leg cramp at 515 this morning. Man I hate leg cramps. Had to climb steps up and down a bluff at the lake all day yesterday.

Almost every night I wake about 2.5 hours after hitting the hay. Lately we've been stressing about a major purchase (more on that later once it goes through or fails). And so the rest of the night has been the brain racing through all the stuff I have no control over.

I do find that getting up and going down stairs walking around a bit and then going back to bed helps. Some times even light exercise helps. And better yet, a couple of shots of Tequila

People have all sorts of remedies for cramps, water, bananas, etc. Since I've retired and have time for my morning "wake up walk" with stretches before and after, I have had virtually no leg cramps.

I think the best one is putting my heal up on a counter, straightening my leg, and then leaning forward and pulling my toes toward which seems to stretch the calf muscles: Sorta like this, but the counter is higher:



.

I also do a few others, but that one seems to stretch the muscles that most often cramp.

I prefer scotch, but if you are into alternative remedies i guess tequila would work.

Eat a banana a day. You need potassium. Works great.

HEY! Bananas Foster for dinner! Made with scotch!

Does stretching heel your sore cramps Arch?

Sorry, but hadn't had a chance to return the favor from the whole Tudor/Tutors debacle. Not singling you out. I'm after Gough too, but I think he's somehow managed to program spell-check & grammar-check into his posts, so it's a deeper dig.

Stretching like that is quite helpful, and can provide immediate relief to a cramp in your leg. That's why you see many football and other sportspeople do it. Although quite often they do it laying down which is just as effective.

I have found that along with the stretching that eating at least a banana every couple of days will keep the night cramps at bay.

I just can't imagine D'arch doing it without getting stuck that way.

Every now and again I get cramps in my shins right above my ankle. It's pretty much unbearable pain and no stretching of any kind helps. I found that if I get out of bed and pace around the house for a while that helps sometimes but not always.

Extra annoying because it gets the dogs wound up as they follow me around, thus waking my wife up.

shin splints are a bitch. But there are stretching exercises for those muscles. Those of us who climb ladders are subject to them more'n normal people because being on rungs on the balls of your feet really aggravate those muscles. Do a search and find the best one for you.

Interesting. I didn't know that what I'm getting was shin splints. I thought that was what runners get and I don't run for anyone or anything, thus I've never had them before. They just started happening in the last few years.

Don't worry about the validity of my diagtrosis, I play doctor on the internet.

Business must be good. I'm always blown away by how many people for either themselves or their pets automatically shout "Quick! To the Google!" when something starts acting up rather than going to the actual doctor or vet.

My wife's terrible for this. I'm pretty sure she's possibly had every disease/syndrome known to man at this point.

I once went for 24 years without having been to a doctor of any kind. Then I hit 38 and had to go for something or other. Then he did something I didn't really expect or like. Then I haven't gone back since. Bad date kind of thing.

"Hey wait, you're not supposed to do that until I'm 40!"

"No time like the present!"

The medicos may have updating things in the last 50 years, but I thought Shin Splints were from damage to the connective tissue, not muscle.

That's why i started going to an attractive female doctor. Makes it feel a little less weird i guess.

Mine was a 70yr old frail man. Two years later, I spent months working in his new mansion he had built. It was kind of awkward, but at least he didn't remember seeing me in his role as a doctor.

Well, unlike you all, I am actually working all day( the last week starting at 4 am a half hour away). So posting here @ 3 or what ever is not uncommon for me as I hardly sleep anyway.
