 It's impossible to comfortably keep a heating pad on my neck. So I took a scarf and sewed a rectangular seam at the fold, filled it 3/4 full with rice and sewed it shut. Microwave it for 15-20 seconds and you have a fashionable heat pack for 20 minutes! :) Just tie the scarf around your neck and tie it in a bow or use a brooch. It feels good!
I suppose you could use it on a knee or arm as well, whatever it would fit around.
I am listing symptoms/test results cuz my Dr is still trying to figure out exactly what's going on with me. If any of this rings a bell with you, email me at daisyhen at msn dot com.
DDD- MRI confirmed
Arthritis-xray confirmed
disc slippage in neck-MRI confirmed
Ulcers-endoscopic confirm
dishydrotic eczema
Had both knees scoped in '93' (awesome improvement)
Are we having fun yet?
