Nightly calcium and magnesium have eliminated leg cramps till now. I was able to stop the cramp before it got started, thankfully! Two nights in a row now.
I have been doing more physical things around the house for a couple of weeks now. I had to box up all the "little" stuff so the guys could move things to do the floors in our condo. I worked slowly and rested often- from necessity. I took naps --from necessity. I ate lots of veggies as usual. My body pain in general has increased. Darn. Fibromyalgia is flairing most likely.
It is discouraging that even this amount of physical activity causes pain. I hate this. Evenings I get so tired and have pains so that putting DH to bed is very trying. Sometime I am napping and he is demanding to get into bed--- and it was at 7:30 pm. If he could have waited till 8:00 pm, I would have been up or at least more rested. I actually told him to recline his wheelchair and rest till I got up. That seemed to work, surprisingly.
I exercise regularly--for many years. Water aerobics is my thing and I do it with gusto. I would think by now my body would be able to do this packing up routine and stay OK. I guess not. Darn. I am now 66. I don't consider that old .
People who know me really don't understand why I can't get lots more done. The one or 2 people around with fibromyalgia do understand. Growing up no one had that and really thought I was lust lazy.
