Sometimes I have trouble sleeping. Sometimes it is because my leg feels as if it wants to cramp above and below the knee. I have a stretch that works sometimes. I usually do the stretch at some point before I go to bed. But some nights, like last night, I do it several times in the bed. I didn't know I could do it in bed for the longest so I would get up, over and over.
It's difficult to drop off to sleep when I keep popping out of bed to stretch. For one thing, I like the bedroom to be pretty cold. I breathe better.
Last night was one of the nights when I had to do the stretch multiple times. I certainly don't get up and walk. If walking were going to help, I'd have been fine because I've been getting my walking in.
