Anyone Tried Using A Weighted Blanket For Sleep Or Pain??

Anyone Tried Using A Weighted Blanket For Sleep Or Pain??

I just got an article in my inbox that spoke about using weighted blankets. I knew nothing about them.

Has anyone tried a weighted blanket to help with sleep or pain at night?

Here's a link to the article.

I'm off to research it. But I would love feedback if anyone has any!

Hugs all around

Yes. I have a weighted blanket. It's one of the best things I have ever bought. Besides having Migraines I have Fibromyalgia, Depression, anxiety, PTSD, and some other issues. Its great to use when you are in pain. Its a major comfort for you. Its calming. I can't say enough good things about it. If I were you I definitely would get one. Sorry for all the rambling. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I will try to help you as much as possible. Good Luck! 💜 Hope you have a pain free day!

Right. It doesn't help migraines but gives the body comfort when you have Fibromyalgia and other issues. 💜

I have almost always liked a heavy blanket, but when they came out with a weighted blanket I really enjoyed the comfort for the rest of my physical issues. It is not stopped my migraines though.

No its not too hot. I'm in perimenopause I get hot flashes but thats totally different. They have some good deals on Amazon. I just got me another one recently. I think I paid between 60.00 - 70.00. I think its 15 - 20 lbs. They have different weights to go by with your body type. You might be able to google the proper size. 😀

No, weighted blankets nor anxiety is just a "Millenial thing". Many people are using them and they are becoming increasingly popular, with many companies starting up projects to have them made. If you know someone that can make you one, I suggest that, as I'm all for the small business support, but I also love my manufactured one that I received. I wish I would have asked for it years ago. I've worked in environments for children and adults with developmental disabilities in different sensory environments and this was used in each of those cases. Why didn't I make the correlation to try one sooner?! The next migraine that comes my way, I'll be prepared and tucked under a beautiful soft heavy weighted blanket! I'm ready for you!

Ok, perhaps these WILL help us!

I suggest you do a long google search to find out what is the right weight and size for you. I don't think they're a one size fits all.

Sweet Dreams!
