      For my tendonitis in my shoulders, I use lidocaine patches. They have ones OTC that don't have a smell to them which is nice for during the day. For digestive discomfort, I'll use a heating pad on my lower back & that helps quite a bit. Idk if either of these are issues you face, but I figured maybe someone is dealing with something similar 🫶 eating/drinking anti-inflammatory diet helps so much too!

      I don't know about you, but with my chronic pain, I use a shower chair to aid me. I found when I went on a trip, there's these stools on Amazon that you could have disassembled in your suitcase and bring with you. Like I said, I don't even know if you use or need a shower chair, but it's one of the only things I could think to say
