Hi, nc for this as it's a bit odd
The last few nights around 8pm my legs have started to become very painful and restless, my joint in my whole body ache like mad and I feel a massive pressure in the base of my head/neck. I feel like I'm spinning but not a drop in blood pressure kind.
I have to take pain killers just to take the edge off the pain to go sleep but I wake an hour or so later with the same feeling.
But I never have it during the day.
I will go to my GP but I feel stupid going for something that sounds weird abs just happens at one time of day.
Any ideas ?
It sounds a lot like magnesium deficiency. That can cause restless legs. I love a 20m soak in epsom salts.
Oh also that is wierd about the headache. Could it be a virus? I woke up at 3am with an excruciating headache on the back of my neck. I'm sure I had a virus.
