I'm new to posting on this forum as I joined when I was diagnosed with Fibro. I started on the Fibro forum and have been slowly branching out.
I started with CRPS after an accident back in 2010. I was doing pretty well until the Fibro added in. I've found my self looking for a lot more alternatives because I don't want to expand my medicine pool.
To that end, I keep a large pool of alternatives to work from. The same things don't work every day. Sometimes it seems like nothing will work.
Things that I'm using now in varied combos:
2 different TENS units (they have different positives)
Heating pads (neck, back)
Heated twin blanket (for my side of the bed - hubby hates heat)
Accupressure mat and pillow
Backnobber myofascial release
ribose, magnesium, etc
Back support pillow (l2 & L5 are crushed)
****su neck massager pillow
Really good socks
Full chair massager and heater.
Smelly hand cream from Bath & Body (helps distract me - I like smells)
