Ice pack. Make at home a cool off!
One of the original ideas behind this healthcare blog was to provide and online space where people could share their ideas and experiences. And most importantly their tips.

Last year we ran a poll looking at how temperature impacts upon pain levels. In that case the poll itself looked at the cold but from the comments it became clear that heat was also an issue for pain for many of our readers and commenters.

Indeed one of our most popular posts of last year was the great tip on how to keep cool in the heat. Indeed I was introduced to the idea from a member of the multiple sclerosis community who found it a very effective way of reducing summertime pain.

Similar applies to other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

So what is the point of this blog?

Well pretty simple from past research we know that people with conditions such as MS and fibro have loads of great ideas on how to keep cool. The aim of this blog is to ask you to share them in the comments box below.

By the way if you are a commercial vendor we won’t delete you post but we do ask you to be very clear the your offering is part of a business.

Otherwise cheap and effective are the watchwords for the comments on this blog.

Thanks very much in advance!
