I know this is not a real syndrome, it is what I call it. Is anyone else experiencing or has experienced waking up at odd hours? I wake up thirsty, with a headache, and feel like I am emptying a bladder the size of the Pacific Ocean. I check my sugar, only to find it slightly elevated, or slightly low. My last insulin dose is before dinner, and I have a light snack before bed.
Still, even though I am tired, I find myself waking up between 2:30 A.M. and 3:30 A.M. feeling like this. The worse part is I try to go back to sleep and wind up tossing and turning, only to find I just got a 30 minute work out rolling around in the bed. R.L.S. Restless Leg Syndrome? I run the Boston Marathon in that time period in my fitful, nap, I guess would be a good word.
I am then up from that point in time, and pretty much spend the day in a daze, I do find I drop off for 15 to 20 minutes if I sit still long enough, but, if I try to go lay down, forget it.
Just wondering if anyone else experiences this, and has any ideas, or am I doomed to feel like "Pop goes the weasel"?
