Monday got off to a late start

I was tired. I was sated. The fan was blowing. The night was quiet.

And I could not sleep because every time I thought I'd settled into a comfortable position, before I could actually fall asleep, I would feel my lower legs and arms begin to prickle with a faint pre-pins and needles sensation, and I would have to readjust and resettle myself in a new position, hoping that would improve the blood circulation.

And nothing seemed to improve the blood circulation, which made me extremely crotchety as the night wore on (it felt like it was wearing on, anyway) and sleep eluded me. By the time the alarm rang this morning, I was still tetchy, so I switched off the alarm and slept in for an extra hour and a half.

I mention this only because I have been having the occasional twitch or cramp in my legs or feet, like the muscle's being pulled taut like the string being drawn on a bow Ondine would tell me to eat more bananas, which I'm trying to do, but the muscles still keep acting up. I wonder if this is just one of those downsides to having naturally low blood pressure ...

Sometimes, I'll wake up in the middle of the night and, not sure if it is before or after I move my leg, my calf will have a massive cramp that leaves my muscles aching for the next day or two.
