Apologies for the lack of posts lately. Work is usually busy, however it has been crazy busy this last week and I have been doing some long hours, and once I get home I just crash out and play some video games or reading before hitting the sack.
The RLS is greatly improved and I haven’t needed to take tramadol during the day. The compression socks that I bought work pretty well, and I definitely recommend them to anyone considering using them. I tentatively also used them at night to see if they work, and they seem to be effective. I say “seem” to be, as I managed to fall asleep ok (which is usually a problem for someone with RLS), but then woke up after about 40 mins with terrible RLS in my arms. Was the RLS caused by some kind of transference from my legs? Or was it due to me going back to the gym and training arms (more likely)? Whatever the reason, since I was sleep deprived I didn’t want to take a risk in having poor sleep (especially since I needed to be really alert at work), so I just took tramadol. I’m also not sure about how I feel about wearing compression socks basically 24/7.
However now that work is back to normal and I’ve had a few nights of good sleep, perhaps I should revisit the test. Seems a lot easier to just pop a pill though.
My back pain has also settled down. It is still sore – especially in the mornings – but not as bad as it was last week. I’m on daily celebrex so I’m sure that is helping. I had a couple of flare ups last week of scalp psoriasis, and I’m certain it was due to the poor sleep, bad RLS and back pain that I had.
Anyway – enough about the RLS & psoriatic arthritis. As a sci-fi aficionado I saw a really interesting video called the 10th dimension. It is pretty short, so if you have time and are interested in this kind of thing I encourage you to watch it. It really helped me to understand the different dimensions after the 3rd (which is what we are used to). Basically by the time you get to the 10th dimension, you are looking at the ability to switch between multiple universes. I didn’t think any more about the video, other than that it was pretty amazing, until just this week when I spotted a science article with physicists suggesting that neutrinos may be flitting between different universes. You can read the article here. Although it sounds like a crazy idea, the scientists in the article actually believe that multiple universes may exist!
There is so much we do not know.
