After an afternoon and evening working in the garden, I sat down for a nice read, and my legs couldn't stop fidgeting and I couldn't stop shaking my legs until I went to bed at around half past 11. Got to sleep about half past midnight, woke up at 2 a.m. and spent the next 3-4 hours with leg cramps alternating with my form of restless legs. I had to get out of bed to deal with the cramps, but could hardly stand up because of lumbago, and couldn't bend down to fit my slippers on because bending my legs renewed the cramping. I tried soothing the rls symptoms with my massage device, but to no real effect. Finally, at about 5 a.m. I made myself a couple of open sandwiches (cheese and cucumber - lovely), and after clearing out all the crumbs in the bed, manage to get to sleep, and overslept until 10 a.m.
At some point during all this, I seriously starting thinking about throwing in the towel, it's just not worth it. Feel much better this morning however.
Just wanted to let of some steam.
