      Light exercise like walking helps me best. I hated the idea of exercise and I thought fitbits were pointless until I got one. It actually motivates me to get moving. It’s when I am sedentary is when I hurt the most. I try to walk a few additional miles a day than what I already do in everyday activities. I swear by this and it keeps my depression down too from the stress of the pain.

      I take supplements and over the counter pain medication when it's really bad but I also have a little rabbit that's filled with rice and lavender that I can eat up in the microwave and it helps with my pain quite a bit

      massage can help me if I'm very gentle and avoid my pressure points. warm epsom salt baths or showers help too.

      I take hot baths and relaxing teas, if the pain is unbearable I'll use CBD creams and massage my whole body

      Stretching. Anti-inflammatory diet. Yoga Nidra Meditation (guided meditation focused on relaxing all the muscles)

      Heat packs and ice packs. Can’t tell you which, I crave one or the other depending on the type of pain (or the temperature of the room 😆)
