Hi everyone, I am new to this site but I have had my diagnosis for approx 6 years however I have lived with the symptoms for years. I thought it might be a good idea that we share anything that helps so I'll start with a few tips.
I have an electric blanket but I don't restrict the use to my bed, I also use it on my sofa on top of and underneath towels.
I have a water dispenser instead of a kettle.
I buy grated and sliced cheese so I know that I should always be able to at least make myself a toastie in a toastie bag, my mum/husband will leave me with a flask and a pack up for the day just to make things easier.
This next one comes at a cost but does offer some relief and helps you sleep - I use Elemis aching muscle soak, you can get testers off ebay etc but a large bottle lasts a long time.
Plenty of heat bags. Got back ache??? Use your dressing gown tie to secure the heat pads on your back and tie it tightly to keep it in place (I do this when I am going out in the cold sometimes)
When getting dressed sit with your feet flat on the floor roll your top up and with your elbows on your knees bring your head downwards.
V shape pillows are great (best £15.00 quid I spent).
You can buy cutlery from the mobility website if you have poor dexterity like me.
Ermmmmmm I'll update any more that I have when I remember. Hope I'm not teaching anyone to suck eggs
