    Hi @peach

    Thanks for sharing this tip with others who may also benefit from it. I know heat can be beneficial when I am having a chronic pain flare-up. Have any of our community members found this beneficial or found another strategy that works best for them?

    This post is from over 2 years ago 

    Would also warn against putting anything heated in a microwave onto your body as there can be patches of high heat that could cause harm

    Hi @janer1967

    Thanks for your response. Yes, I will be focusing on newer posts from today. Yesterday I was focused on ensuring everyone had at least one response  :) Moving forwards, is there anything you have found effective for dealing with your chronic pain?
