I have been up since 1:45 am. I woke up with shooting pain from my hip to my knee. It almost felt like dual charlie-horses. I think Arthur was knocking on my lower limbs to remind me that he's still there. I tried changing positions and stretching before I gave up, got up and literally walked it off.
This type of thing has been a fairly regular thing through my journey so I didn't think much of it (other than the curse words I muttered till it ended) but when I sat down, I found an article from Arthritis Today in my inbox that addresses just this topic. I read it and wanted to share it with you.
You can find the article here. If you are like me, and insomnia is an "old friend" that pops up on a regular basis, I hope it gives you some insight, Have a lovely day!
