It depends/nore info: More info. Is likely needed to be sure of what this is. It may be that the humidity is doing this, that you may be sensitive to it, and that you need to replenish fluids. Second, sleeping on the sofa may cause muscle cramps, and that you might need to sleep more on a firm bed. Finally, this cramping can be a sign of circulation problems, especially if you are older.

My niece fell off the sofa from a 25cm height and onto a carpeted floor, she fell asleep but wakes herself up from dreams, should I still worry?
Knocked out ?: A fall of that distance to a carpeted floor is unlikely to bother most infants.You don't mention age, but any kid who was not knocked out by a fall, but simply cried after is at low risk. Sleep in those kids when tired is normal. If problems are going to happen you usually see a rapid onset of repeated vomiting as a sign of deterioration.

Is this a proper BP taking procedure?
1. Wake up
2. Go to the bathroom
3. Sit down on a sofa
4. Wait 1 minute and then take BP?
Should I wait longer?
Longer: 1 minute is not enough time to recover from the exercise of using the BR and walking. The usual advice is 10-15 minutes of rest. Try this: watch TV with the cuff IN YOUR LAP. When the commercial comes on, with no further exertion, check your BP 3 times, 1 minute apart. Average them. That's an accurate BP. ...Read more
