So, for the last 5 days I have been off my Flexoril (a muscle relaxant that aides sleep for those of use with Fibromyalgia). I just decided one night I was going to fall asleep without it and for the last 5 nights, my sleep has been total bliss and I didn't even wake up in the middle of the night like I did with the meds.
My face has been less puffy, I wake up in the morning feeling at least like I have slept and I have had no more night terrors. That was before....................last night. I went to bed as usual at 2100 hours (9:00 pm). My legs and feet started the creepy bugs in my body symptom or Restless Leg Syndrome. 2130, I think I rolled back and forth at least 20 times. 2200....thats it, up I got headed for the couch.
Finally, by midnight I was able to drift off to sleep. Tonight? Well, lets just say it is almost 11:00 pm and here I am blogging because I can't sleep! It is just so frustrating to think I have a plan and one that seems to be working and them BAM! I am back to square one!
