I have not posted for ages - sorry! However I do drop in most days for a read.
I recently bought an electric blanket and have found that getting into a warm bed is making bedtime much nicer and thought I’d share! It cost me about £50 and I wish I’d brought one years ago.
I have had ppms since summer 2009 and I’m lucky in that I’ve not had much progression since dx in April 2010. Well luck or taking LDN since dx and sleeping on an inclined bed who knows!
Anyway, although I have many constant symptoms I can cope most of the time and am still able to work full time. I take baclofen at night for cramp and stiffness, but I have found that, with my new electric blanket, my body relaxes into the warmth and I can drift off more easily. (If my feet get too cold or too hot my left big toe points skywards and it is excruciating. I also get dreadful tightness in my calves, which although gives my calves muscle definition is also very painful). I don’t sleep with it on, though I will if the weather gets very cold, apparently it costs 2p a night if on all night - 2p well spent imo!
I also have a fan which I can operate remotely (remote plug switch thing, cheaper than remote fan), so I can cool down more quickly if I wake with a hot flush. Best of both worlds.
What little (or big) things do you do that help your daily issues?
