Just wanted to let you know, that after finding a bubble massager for my bath, I am now able to have an almost pain free half hour. I bought it online for £49 from a gadget place called gizoo and it has provided me with many lovely baths and quite a few giggles thus far.
I had researched into affording an outdoor spa, but realise the running costs in winter would be prohibitive, looked at changing my bath to a spa bath (also quite expensive) and also at membership for a spa (£80 per month here!). I had discovered that other than deep meditation, a bubble spa is the only thing that interrupts the pain signal that my brain permanently recieves which is like bee stings and snow burn over most of my body. I read some reviews and decided to risk the £49 as it was on offer from just under £90. I can say it gives a really powerfull massage and it helps me as much as the manual massages I used to afford at £30 a go! It lays in the bottom of the bath and has an electrical motor on a long lead so there is no danger of getting the electrics wet. It has a remote control you stick on the bath. IT IS A GODSEND.
If there are any moderators reading this, I am passing this information on as this product took me ages to find, and has really been a help to me. I DO NOT have any affiliation to the company who makes it, or to gizoo who sell it, so please do not block this information as some of the fibromites may get pain relief from it like I do.
I am lucky enough to be able to get in and out of the bath today..... so off I go to bathroom gadget city for some pain relief as fingers now quite soar!
ttfn hope info usefull NN
