This article and these stretches have given me a bit of hope. Doing these prior to going to bed let me have a relatively tingle-free night; the best I’ve had in a while.
COVID-19: I am still going to play it conservative; no eating in at a restaurant and no large, packed together crowds for a long time. Outdoor, socially distanced events (e. g. limited capacity ball games outdoor) will be ok.
But while getting vaccinated is a great idea, it is not fool proof and other reckless people can still infect you. I’ll loosen up a bit..but not get reckless.
