Heating Pads

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.

New Beginnings

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…
