Welcome to Healing Well :)
I don't know what kind of work you do but is it possible to have a heating pad at work? I have one both at home and at work. There is also special rice pads that you simply heat up in the microwave and they act like a heating pad. I haven't tried it but I have also heard good things about
the peel and stick heat patches. Those allow more mobility and since you wear them under your clothes, people aren't able to see them. How is the food diary going? I found that helped me so much and wish I had done it sooner but I have really identified so much that I had no idea was causing me symptoms. Since everyone is different with their food tolerances, its hard to give advice as to what to avoid (although there are many common trigger foods as well). Please keep posting.
