Finding temporary relief
So it has been about 5 days since I have taken any advil and it is so hard!!. My neck pain and headaches are reaching a peak. I will not give in! I will save my liver from the advil and I will find a better way to relieve the pain.
So today I got Thermacare heat wraps, and I also got a heating pad that you put into the microwave.
The heat wrap is adhesive. the directions say not to apply any pressure and to watch for overheating. I have had it on for around 50 minutes and it feels more like slight warmth, not heat. I actually just ended up placing the heating pad on top of it and it still does't feel that hot. I'm hoping the heat does something though because I have got to do an essay and right now I am seeing stars. the heat pad seems more promising, oh and btw, the adhesive on the heat wrap sucks, if you don't get it on right the first time, forget about it sticking at all.
So I ended up just wearing the heating pad thing with the adhesive and i wrapped a scarf around my neck to keep it on, yes this is the best I can do. BTW this is my fluffy bear
