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

What Do You Do When You Can't Sleep?

I'm trying to figure out how to help with deeper sleep. Lack of sleep causes migraines, but then migraines cause lack of sleep....so what do you do to help yourself?

HELP!

Thank you!

There are some essential oils that can help you also with relaxing and sleep. Try the lavender 💜 oil for relaxing. I also really like the peppermint oil for migraine as well as peppermint tea.

I was taken off topomax 3 weeks ago when i got botox and was given samples of qulipta. Now its been a week without any medicine and i had my 2 migraines. But that is usual. I am sick of medicine and the side effects. Acid reflux and stomach aches. Anyone just listen to their bodies instead of the doctor?

2 Questions Actually, That Make Migraine Pain Worse, How Do You Handle When You Can't Stop Crying And Same For Stress

2 Questions Actually, That Make Migraine Pain Worse, How Do You Handle When You Can't Stop Crying And Same For Stress

Sometimes I cry just because I am in so much pain even though crying makes the pain worse but I have to get it out it seems. Also I cry when family or friends are in trouble or hurt.
Same thing with stress, I have been able for the most part to keep it at bay for myself, but when my kids or other family or friends are in trouble or hurt, I don't know how to keep the stress and my anxiety disorder under control 🤔

Nurtec Adverse Reactions;

Nurtec Adverse Reactions;

I tried nurtec instead of imitrex. I'm not sure if it was the nurtec or something else is going on, but has anyone had their gums in front swell and get sore? Or had a swollen salivary gland?
Thank you!
