First night with my new weighted blanket #ChronicPain #Fibromyalgia

Last night was my first night with my new weighted blanket. I had been reading reviews and even getting recommendations from family that I needed to get one. It was going to help my night sweats and help get a better nights sleep.

I have to say, overall… I would give my first night a 4 out of 5. I assumed the 16lb blanket would be too heavy and it wasn’t. Once I was settled in a position, I pulled over the blanket and was quite comfortable. I don’t remember waking up as much in the middle of the night, not was my bottom half twisted. I did not sweat at all. My shirts wasn’t even a little bit damp.

The only reason I didn’t give it 5/5 is because I must have found a way to sleep twisted with my neck/head. I have a huge pain in my back/right shoulder. Hard to move my full range with my neck. And my hand falls asleep if I am holding something for longer than five minutes. My hand is tingling as I type this (lying on my massager).

So now I have pulled out the neck massager and having it work the neck, back and shoulder.
