Just when we had this really awesome monolith to wonder about – it just disappears!
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A mysterious silver monolith that was placed in the Utah desert has disappeared less than 10 days after it was spotted by wildlife biologists performing a helicopter survey of bighorn sheep, federal officials and witnesses said.
It’s 2:00 AM. You aren’t sleeping. Why? Because your legs are driving you nuts!
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is so frustrating. What causes it? What stops it…can it be stopped? What the heck can I do about this? If you find yourself thinking things along this line in the middle of the night, you have my sympathy. RLS sucks – really, it does.
I read an interesting article on Mattress Advisor. I learned a few things. Here are a couple of interesting facts:
There are three things that need to be considered when trying to deal with RLS. Start with the first one & work your way down. You will most likely need help from your primary care physician, but it’s worth the effort.
Underlying Conditions – Do you have underlying conditions that can cause RLS?
Lifestyle Changes – Do you need to make some lifestyle changes to alleviate RLS?
Medication – If the first two don’t apply, maybe your doctor needs to prescribe medication.
Restless Leg Syndrome 5% – 10% of adults and 2% – 4% of children. The article by Andrea Pisani Babich, said that
“Researchers still can’t say for sure what causes RLS, but they have discovered evidence linking it to a few different factors, including genetics, pregnancy, iron abnormalities, and kidney abnormalities. They have also linked RLS with other conditions such as ADHD, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord, and neurological abnormalities, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Sleep Apnea.”
I find it interesting that there are so many possible causes of RLS. The article covers a number of treatment possibilities. It provides hope that there are solutions, and we don’t have to give up our sleep and live with RLS. We may be able to do something about it!
SALT LAKE CITY — Federal land managers are not saying what happens next to the mysterious monolith installed in the ground in a remote red rock area of San Juan County as they continue their investigation.
The Bureau of Land Management wants to know who put it there, how the shiny structure arrived at its destination and why someone would go to the trouble.
This Nov. 18 photo provided by the Utah Department of Public Safety shows a Utah state worker inspecting a metal monolith that was found installed in the ground in a remote area of red rock in Utah. The exact location is so remote that officials are not revealing it publicly, worried that people might get lost or stranded trying to find it and need to be rescued. Associated Press
