What brands and doses were effective?

Melatonin gummies and Jamieson's Magnesium Night help me to get to sleep. Sometimes I actually get 4.5 - 5 hours of heavier sleep after which I practice "mindful breathing" - which relaxes my body enough that I can get comfortable in bed (seven deep breaths in, hold for a bit then count to seven as I breathe out either through my mouth - and as I get more comfortable through my nose).

I also have Fibro and restless legs. It’s so unbearable at times. I use a foam roller and sometimes I pound my keys to soften the muscle in my calf. I also use a cream for inflammatory issues. Or it all else fail I just get up and walk. Sometimes walking around my house as it usually happens at night. Good luck. You are not alone. πŸ’–

Are y'all talking about Raynaud's Syndrome for your hands? If so, yes I have it, and yes mine stings but only as the blood is returning. I have it year round, even in the heat of Texas summers. πŸ€—

The Raynauds is a pain. My primary put me lowest dose blood pressure meds to help with opening up the blood vessels. Having low blood pressure to start with and a low heart rate from running it took months of alternating days taking it until my body got used to it and things leveled out. Once I was able to increase it to every night i started getting more relief. I have copper fit fingerless compression gloves for when it gets really bad indoors.

My hands were cold and the fingers were pale. even now my finger tips shrink so that I can't use my fingerprints to open med drawers. I still have this pproblem with the fingertips, but my hands are no longer cold.
