Hi,  I am new to this forum.  I've just come to tell you of something that is really working for me re pain relief.
A bit of background about me.  I have had lupus for about ten years now and have just lived with the pain because I had to give up anti-inflammatories due to the degeneration of my stomach lining (probably due to constant use).
I bought myself a magni-wool magnetic underlay in a half hearted attempt at helping with the intense pain  that I live with in my knees, feet, elbow, hands, wrist and various other wandering pain areas.
Since I have been sleeping on this underlay I have had no pain in my knees or anywhere else!  (I couldn't walk up or down stairs without pain).
I am no longer as stiff in the mornings and feel much, much better!!!
I pray that it works for all lupus sufferers and highly recommend you try it.

Hi Kiwitoo!
Wow, that is fantastic!  Any recommendation for pain relief is taken seriously here!  Actually, the folks in the Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain forums would likely be interested in this too.
I started using a memory foam mattress cover about a month ago.  It's done wonders for me too. No cure, but I'm sleeping more comfortably. 
I've heard that magnets work well for a lot of conditions. Thanks for letting us know!

Thanks Ginny.  I have just read your post below about your fybro.   I know what you mean about extremely long flares!!  I also have a memory foam pillow which stopped all the stiff necks I was regularly getting.  The memory foam mattress sounds great!!  I will take your advice and post on the Fybro and chronic pain boards as well about the magnetic underlay.

Hi Kiwitoo,

Actually I replied to you on the fibro forum, but thought that I would post here too.  I have worn magnets for many years and have found that I get a great deal of relief from them.  They even help with the stiffness I get from my arthritis.  I wish more people would be open minded enough to give them a try.
