the patches i put one by my temple and then two
on my forhead in the area that hurts.. and then just
the extra next to it... HEATING IT UP! Anyway, i slept
okay last night... but at 2 am i woke up with a tinge of
it starting.. so i put on two fresh heat pads. And then
it killed it right away and i went back to sleep. On the
downside, this morning at 5:30 am, it tinged up again BUT
I COULD NOT use another pad because i was using them too much
and my skin became a rash. I used 6 fresh pads in the same
areas (a total of 21 pads)... and you are only recommended to
use 2 pads per area a day or you'll get a rash. But, i'm letting
myself no pads today so i can use them again tonight. I read
an article that shows that heat.. sports gels, etc. can cause
the blood to kinda flow easier through the vessels... and thus
it's not so bad. But, never use a heating pad on your head.
It's too hot and causes naseau.... oh, these aren't recommended
for head use... i just use them anyway... to heck with it already.
So, use at your own risk. They are soo cheap though. $4 for 50
pads. I don't mind throwing one in the mail to someone if they need
me too.
