Stupid legs

I'm sleeping in my leg brace tonight. It's not been a good day for my lower half, and my right hamstring is threatening to wake me up in the middle of the night in agony if I don't immobilize it. I'm not sure what it is. It happens a 2-3 times a year, almost always in the middle of the night. A shooting pain, like the hamstring is being twisted, pretty much sets my leg on fire and makes it impossible to walk. I've always attributed it to the way I twist my body when I sleep, but for whatever reason, it's been threatening me during the day today. Like...it's starting to tense up in anticipation of that twisting pain but never quite makes it. Craig massaged it, and I'm currently okay, but who knows what will happen later?

I hate the breaking down of my body. Getting old sucks.
