Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/ Chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
I haven't found any prescriptions that help with all my pain but I recently found delta 8 and it is working wonders
following for advice
A plastic folding chair in the shower, compression gloves for my arthritic wrists, small pill containers that I can fill and take with me in my purse(of course), lots of notebooks and planners that I can write down what I need to remember plus I can plan out what I need to do and mete it out over the week so that I am not overdoing it, lots of rice socks including one that I can put on my eyes, the ability to message my doctors offices through patient portals or front office messaging text numbers, a really good support system and tons and tons of prayer! I know that's a lot. I hope something in here helps you. 💕 Be strong! You're amazing! 🫂
The microwave, I use to love cooking but now have many days I can't stand up to do it and the microwave makes it possible for me to eat
My couch because I can no longer climb the stairs to get to my bedroom at night
Heating pad and ice packs. Sometimes essential oils, my phone to reach out to others Not much actually heals with pain. I do take hot epsom salt baths.
Braces, curble seat, ergo keyboard and mouse. Medication reminders.
what’s a good ergo keyboard and mouse? I’ve been looking for one for work
I like the Microsoft sculpt or Kenesso I think is the brand it has a split keyboard. I also use a sit stand desk and I use compression typing gloves.
I'm on so many medications and I got sick of sorting them every week, so I ordered a device that I pay around $20 (I think it recently went up) a month for called Hero. I can set it up to go off when it is time to take my meds and it dispenses them for me. I used to dread med sort nights especially if I wasn't feeling well and now I don't have to worry about it and it tells me when my meds are getting low.
😯😯😯 that sounds like a product made in heaven lol
that’s pretty cool…. Had to edit this before posting as I read your message again. I see my complaint about such device, was answered by you and it does warn you when getting low.
Heating pads. And lots of apps to remind me to do things, one for my meds, one for my to-do list, and one to keep moving.
Hand warmers, cooling towels, hats to block sun, hats to cover ears, plan on getting heated socks, gloves, and jackets/vests, possibly a cooling vest 🙏
