Hi ladies. Omg last night was horrible,  I had severe restless legs and feet all night until I eventually gave up at 3am and took a sleeping pill. Does anyone else get this and what do you do to help? I know it can be an electrolyte imbalance but because I eat keto I pretty on top of that already, suggestions please. Thanks!

oh no lIsa! I'm in some kind of pain probably 3 days a week most weeks, and I often get a myalgia after I've been sick that sounds a lot like what you experienced last night.

I find a hot shower helps, and then lying in bed i tighten my muscles and hold them tight, then slowly release the energy from them. I do that a few times, usually with a sleep app or something playing, and usually it helps settle and relax things

My work is very physical and I am on my feet constantly walking for 10 hours straight so I feel like that triggers it! Cool I shall try that Trudi thanks :-) I may get some magnesium after work see if that helps.

Maybe try a magnesium cream straight onto your legs as the body absorbs it better this way than orally?

Shift work plays havoc with your sleep eh Macs? especially if you still have to get up and sort out your kids in the morning!

I use the Goodhealth one, Lisa. Epsom salts are also good in the bath as they are also magnesium.

Cool Soozie thanks for that I just purchased it online, I got the Goodhealth sleep magnesium cream for only $13.20 which is great and i would certainly prefer a cream over pills, thanks for your help!
