My night routine is 20 min of basic exercise and stretching, some sit ups, push ups, ect. followed by a Tylenol PM. I have had a chronic knee pain from an injury about 8 years ago, and this has been helping me out great. Used to toss and turn and wake up feeling like crap. Followed the docs suggestions, and now I feel great in the morning. Just my 2.

But if you are going to be out like a light that is a good thing right.

Doc General Medicine prescribed 10mg "Flexiril". But only for a couple weeks. Guess we'll see if they help.

He wants to look at my HDL/LDL levels and suggest I drop nearly 50lbs off my frame. The last bit was laughable. I haven't weighed 170 since I was in High school. Stupid BMI index.
