My wife bought two for me. One downstairs and one up. The heating pads are fantastic for shoulders and neck.

I tried to buy one from Amazon but they won't sell it to Australia and Merissa could do with one of these, she uses a rice bag but it doesn't cover the shoulder blades only the neck and she is always complaining about shoulder blade and neck pains so, I may need to find a way to buy one somewhere...!

Thanks for the link, Sharon..!

Cheers
George

It wouldn't work in Australia anyway. Different electrical systems.

Oh, right, the 110V against the 220V here, bugger...!

Thank you for letting me know.

Cheers

I've learned not to buy clothing for the women in my life!

I read a story once about a fellow who bought a dress for his wife -- 2 sizes too small -- but he had the clerk hold an identical dress in his wife's correct size... she loved the dress and loved that he thought her smaller than she really was....
Years ago we were shopping to go to Hawaii. My husband held up a pair of size 8 shorts and said they looked like they would fit me. Love is blind! Not by three sizes or so! Love that man.

800mg of Motrin 3 times a day is my answer to what ails me, my knees and back. I get all I can take from the VA plus...all the other drugs to counteract the side effects from the amount of Motrin I have to take. Tried the heating blankets but they just made me sweat a bunch.

Not to hijack Sharon's thread, but I guess I really lucked out... at 77 years I have very few aches or pains, (unless I do something stupid in the shop and get whacked, hacked or cut..) I do wake up with a little stiffness in the back, but 2 Aleves first thing in the morning and I'm good to go.

I have RA, like George's wife does, unfortunately. My mom had it and sweet generous lady that she was, shared it with me!
