Oct 27, 2018 · Parsonage turner syndrome * in Brain & Nervous System

Another thing I found extremely helpful was a product called Thermacare Heat Wraps…they are made for neck, back, knees, etc. They are air activated and have adhesive to apply to your body. They last from 8-12 hours – best part you can conceal them under your clothing during the day or leave them on at night and no cords. They are really helpful – you can’t control the heat level but I have found them to be very helpful and convenient to use when I can’t apply a heating pad or plug one in..sleeping is much easier with them on instead of plugging in my heating pad. Hope this is helpful.

Thank you for sharing this information. I’m sorry for your pain – I go through periods of numbness from my neck to finger tips and also my hips to legs. They couldn’t figure out what was causing it. They did perform an elecgromyography but didn’t show issues. I have chronic neck and shoulder pain – they tried to do a cortisone injection but the discs in my neck were to close together (due to bulging) that they were not able to insert the needle. Appreciate information since it described what I experienced. Heat definately helps!! Love my heating pads. Best of luck and hope you feel better soon.

I couln’t take it – I was allergic to it; my mouth started swelling and throat started closing. Take Cymbalta & a compound cream my dr. Prescribed. Nothing really seems to help completely. Just learning how to live with it like everyone else. I’m sorry for what you’ve experienced.

Tried tiger balm, heat, PT, steroid injections but much has helped. Bulging discs in my neck, lumbar & siatica. Fibro certainly doesny help & rainy days. I love Tiger Balm but it didnr seem to help tremendously. One of my doctors prescribed a compounded cream with lidocaine, guaifenesin, ketoprofena md magnesium. Dont know what all those ingriedients are but its worked better than the balm and Arnicare. Will admit – doesn't feel great on the skin – hard to describe but its rather like your skin is stiff. hope this helps.
