Since I started taking the magnesium marine tablets I have been sleeping so much better, I now have a fit bit that you were as a watch and when you go to bed you tell it you are going to sleep, when you wake up you tell it you are awake and it tells you how long you have slept for and how restless it was. I seem to average about 7 hours sleep and 45 min restless, which I know is due to when I turn over its very painful and I wake up but once I have turned I go back to sleep, thankfully! It also monitors how active you have been in the day and counts how many steps you do, they recommend you do 10,000 steps a day which is quite hard especially when you are working and sitting at a desk all day, but taking the dogs out is brilliant as your steps add up so much, I am thankful I have them now as I would not go walking as much if I did not have them and I am finding exercise is helping me too. I had a bit of a painful Saturday and thought oh no, its going back to the way it was but I seem to be doing ok, I find if I keep going I am ok but as soon as I am not active the pain and stiffness start, so the key for me is exercise and rest exercise and rest and not to do too much at one as I now know I will pay for it, hope this info is a bit useful and I just keep hoping and praying that I carry on like this!!!! ps I am also taking Vitamin D3 and Zinc and have been for the last 4 weeks, I really am not sure what they are supposed to do but I seem to be ok! Just going to get up for my walk up the stairs to the kitchen to keep my joints moving x
