Just agreeing w/ what everyone said :) The contrast is a warm feeling that runs through your body, and yes - it does make you feel like you wet yourself :)
With my health issues - I have severe heat intolerance...but the "warm feeling" of the contrast doesn't bother me. You'll be just fine, I promise.
I'm sorry your back and knees have been hurting tonight. I can't get comfortable tonight either....and it's going to be time to get up before I know it :(
Many, many health and pain issues.
Many meds - including Atenolol, Effexor, MS Contin, Dilaudid, Actiq (oral Fentanyl), Soma, Vitamin D, Iron (for anemia), Synthroid...and on the list goes.
Personal: I'm a Christian wife and mother; I have six sons and identical twin daughters.
