I do stretching before getting out of bed too. Unrelated topic: mega chigger bites (from the grass path in Castlewood I think). Huge cluster on the very spot where my achilles ussually hurts after running. Any ideas why that area might attract them? Wonder if it could even have some therapeutic value.

they like to get under close fitting clothing like socks and waist bands. less likely to get brushed off there. failing that, they'll spread out a bit and dig in on trailing edges. Harder to find there?

I cannot imagine what therapeutic value they might have, unless you did something evil, like sprinkled them in the bedding of someone you don't like.

sure understand general area, but why 20 of them piled on an area the size of a quarter. TV - dunno, maybe stimulates healing reactions in low circulation area
" the migration of fluid, proteins, and whiteblood cells (leucocytes) from the circulation to the site of tissue damage"
in the same category as the medicinal use of leeches to heal wounds and clear blood clots
