Sunbeam Heating Pad For Arthritis

Updated on March 15, 2018

Warm My Joints Up

My heating pad is something I just can't live without these days especially with the onset of the colder climate I live in. My body is troubled with Degenerative Arthritis known as Osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia. I'm way to young to have it as bad as I do but be it as it may I have to deal with it. Of course, I take pain meds but it's been hard to find just the right one that helps. The one thing that helps me the most even tho I take over the counter medicine is my heating pad. When the aches and pains get going all I want to do is go sit in my chair with my heating pad and curl up with my blanket, which I do often. I adjust the heating pad to where the pain is at and turn it on for pain relief. It helps for calming my arthritis pains down.

I have a King size heating pad which means it's a long size. I like that because because you can put it longways from your shoulders to your low back. I use it the most that my pain areas. Not only do I have the arthritic pain in those areas but as well in both wrists, both knees and ankle. With the heating being long I can wrap my knee in it which really helps. I had a bone scan done recently that showed those were my worst areas but don't worry I can feel it in the rest of my body as well. Sometimes I wish they made a heating pad that you could slip your whole body into. Now that would help warm those joints up. So pretty much from head to toe which is not fun at all.

About My Heating Pad

My heating pad has ultra heating technology that includes dry and moist heating. I use dry heat the most. What's really nice is that it has a automatic shut off on it. It has 4 heat settings on the control which it nice. It shuts off after 60 minutes; not to say I use it for that amount time but I do turn it down low a lot and just let it shut off on its own. The recommended time of heat is 20 minutes at a time on the joints.

My Fiancee's Thoughtfulness

Recently while shopping with my boyfriend he threw a heating pad in the cart. I looked at him and said why are you buying that I already have one. He told me that I needed another one so I don't have to always run upstairs or vice versa. The steps are hard om my knees. So now I have two of them thanks to him. I'm so thankful for his thoughtfulness. The heating pads really do help my arthritic pains a lot. Its a total life safer for me
