I forgot to mention that David has a $5 bet riding on the Super Bowl game today. He bet that the Baltimore Ravens will win, and his co-worker Losi bet that the San Francisco 49ers will win by 4 points. Over the years, David has won a lot of money from Losi, and he anticipates being $5 richer this evening. Let’s all root for the Ravens, shall we?
I don’t know what is wrong with me. I keep waking up at ungodly hours. Today, I awoke at 2 am. Can you believe it? Grrr. That’s only 3-1/2 hours sleep! Here it is 10:50 am, and I still have not gone back to bed.
Last year, David underwent a test for sleep apnea. Electrodes were placed all over his body, including his feet. After the test, the neurologist, Dr. P, informed David that though he had mild apnea, it was the twitching or involuntary movement of his feet that woke him up. He prescribed Mirapex, which is used for “restless leg syndrome.” During his visit last week, David told Dr. P that he has been sleeping much better. In fact, he feels much more energetic despite his Low-Testosterone levels. Wow, that’s incredible! Dr. P advised David to double the dose for maximum effect, and if that worked, he would give David a new prescription for that dose.
I am now wondering if I, too, have restless leg syndrome or twitching feet, like David. Hmmm. Should I undergo a sleep test, too? I sure hope I don’t doze off during the Super Bowl game!
