The problem is leg pain--probably nerve pain--of the entire leg or both legs--I also get leg or ankle cramps at times, but those I can move until they go away and then get back to sleep--with the leg pain, I just have to wake up and get up, as going back to sleep is not possible. I do take tylenol 650mg every 8 hours and this helps more that anything else I have tried for pain, but does not do much for the early morning leg pain problem.

Sorry to hear that JHDIETNOW :-(( That is really tough to deal with. Pain and leg cramps wake me up, in spite of taking lots of magnesium, calcium, D3, K2 Co Q 10 and others.
Got 5.5 hours with 2 wake ups

6 hours. Yesterday I dropped off to sleep and spilled a cup of hot tea in my lap. After focusing on the better sleep challenge I have improved the amount of nighttime sleep, but it is not consistent and still not enough sleep. It is not going to sleep, but staying asleep that is the problem and what wakes me up is pain in my legs due to restless leg syndrome. I have adjusted my medications for this but am at maximum dose that I can tolerate due to the side effects of any increase being too severe. Until I can get the RLS under better control, I plan to take a nap in the afternoon to avoid these dropping off incidents, which could be dangerous.

Currently the cat is shut in my room along with her food and litter box. (the room is very large and there is an adjoining bath). This is because the dog eats the kitty litter, so he is shut out of my room.

sorry TWEETYKCOO :-((

Got maybe 4.5 with wake-ups, bad stomach, woke up in a heavy sweat

Cats can't get through a closed door. Never understood why people let pets up on their bed, especially cats, they have no boundaries and will walk over you..

When one door closes, I simply kick down another one!! Never Give up!

6.5 hours--half awakened twice due to cat.

Luckily(?) I have always been able to awaken enough to do some things without being all the way awake. For example, if my CPAP mask get out of place, I can straighten it and am awake enough to know I've done it, but not awake enough to notice anything else. I can also talk in my sleep and engage in conversations that I do not know about unless someone tells me later. Once I had side effects from a medication that resulted in me doing things in my sleep and the motion from doing them would wake me up. For example, once I awakened with arms stretched in the air thinking I had just shot a basketball. The doctor took me off the medication immediately, saying he thought I would be getting in the car or pool in my sleep if I kept taking it!!!

6.5 with one interruption. I think sometimes I forget to include wake up time in my post. Once in a while I can sleep 6 or more hours without waking up at all. Mostly I have to get up to the bathroom once during the night.

I slept great last night! 7.8 hours with CPAP; plus my usual cat naps in the car on the way home from our weekend get-away. My hubby drove, not me. LOL

Don't give up! Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start over fresh each day.

I actually got almost 8 hours of sleep last night. I've been sick this week, so I'm exhausted. I think that's why. Felt good!
