Sunbeam Heating Pad For Arthritis
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. I also have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I'm way to young to have it as bad as I do but be it as 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 though 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 chronic joint pains down.
I have a king size heating pad which means it's a longer than your regular size. I like that because because you can put it longways from your shoulders to your low back. I use it that most of all. Not only do I have the arthritic pain in those areas but as well in my wrists, knees, feet and my ankles. Pretty much everywhere. With this heating being long I can wrap it around those joint areas as needed which really helps.
Sometimes I wish they made a heating pad that you could slip your whole body into because some days I hurt so much from head to toes. But I'm thankful for my heating pad that I have because it has become my best friend when I'm hurting.
About My Heating Pad
My heating pad is king size with 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 on 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 even though I do more.

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 on 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 and Fibromyalgia pains a lot. Its a total life safer for me
