Glad to help MTD,
I tell you what, the leg pains at night were more than a nuisance at one time but I found that sleeping with my feet 6″ lower than my bum certainly helped. I couldn’t go to sleep with my ankles crossed, or my knees up, as both would wake me with severe pain too.
I have to sleep sitting up as well, so use a ‘profiling’ bed but for those that don’t have one, then chocking the head of the bed up (either on books, blocks or those ‘elephants feet’ purpose made chocks) might help, as may sleeping on a folded up duvet under the rest of the body, to lift it higher than the feet – as well as the Epsom salt baths of course (magnesium boost!)
