Heating pads and Epsom Salt baths are my friends. I have back pain, arthritis, and joint pain therefore my heating pad has become one of my best buddies over the years.
The Good Old Heating Pad. This is my #1 go-to to help me cope with my lower back pain. I have degenerative disc disease as well as a herniated disc located in my lumbar region. In the last 4 years I’ve gone through 3 heating pads. I remember the first time I used one. I was 15 years old and my mom heated it up for me because I was having such bad period cramps. It would end up being 14 years later before I found out that what I had been experiencing was not normal. Endometriosis.
Most of us old school chronic pain people know that a heating pad is a must. It can be the difference between a bad day and a really bad day. I can tell you this, no matter how broke I am, I’m going to have a heating pad even if something gets paid…
