Here ya go buddy, this should help.

u/anck_su_namun · 71 pointsr/BabyBumps

Hi! I’m back!!
Although I thoroughly intend to write my birth story when I’m ready, I just finished my first piece since the baby arrived so in celebration, I’ll pair it with something useful.

I really appreciated posts like this while I was pregnant so here goes:

Things I didn’t know I needed:
(AKA things I have frantically ordered on amazon at or around 2am)

Bottle Drying Rack This probably seems obvious, but when we didn’t get this from our showers we were like... idk why we can’t just use a towel??

Safe way to cosleep My husband built a BEAUTIFUL Sidecar Crib, but it was attached on my side of the bed and it took 2.5 weeks for me to have healed enough to climb in bed around it safely with the baby. This way, I didn’t have to bend over to pick up baby or even spit up to check on/soothe him.

Lactation Suppliment My lactation consultant approved. This one worked well in my breakfast tea.

Better flanges My poor nipples were so sore and the flames that come with the Medela... well I’m not sure who they’re supposed to fit but not me. My doula practically ordered these for me. GAME CHANGER.

Pumping bra I was cutting holes in sports bras. This is better.

Nipple Shells Another kind reddittor sent me in the direction of this AMAZING INVENTION after I posted a photo of ice packs tied to my nipples with a burp cloth because I refused to wear a shirt my nipples hurt so bad. I will be purchasing these for EVERY PREGNANT WOMAN FOREVER. They keep your nipples dry, collect drips, apply counter pressure to keep your nipples shaped correctly for latching, and most importantly omg nothing touches the precious nips and you can wear a shirt!!

Car mirror

Me: that seems extra, he’s in a car seat and safe why would I need a mirror??


Car adapter for my breast pump Cheaper than batteries

Shade for his side of the car because anything that wakes up my sleeping baby is the devil. This one has a bonus that allowed me to roll the window down and it was HOT in the south

Better suction for the breast pump Again- just better than whatever they send you

My Breast Friend we got the boppy but this one saved my back

Heating pad Turns out I’ll do ANYTHING to keep the baby asleep when I transfer him to his crib including preheat the darn thing (on low!) before I lay home down

Stroller Caddy You’ll want somewhere to put your keys, phone, and coffee

Baby K’tan An easier way for my husband to wear the baby.

Leggings I had a pair of these before, and they are SO COMFORTABLE on my postpartum body that I bought 5 more in different colors!

•Extra pump parts for whichever pump you have

•A hands-up swaddle I found at Target


Anyway, hope this helps! Best of luck to all of you!

u/Subject2Change · 50 pointsr/AskReddit

D'Mannose helps. My Girlfriend had issues of getting UTI's quite frequently, D'Mannose regularly and just more water helped a lot. She can normally "kill" them prior to becoming a full blown UTI and need to get antibiotics.

u/BabblingBunny · 18 pointsr/antiMLM

What about D-Mannose

ETA- I read about this supplement here on Reddit somewhere and saved it on my Amazon wishlist. I don't get UTIs often. Only two in the past 15 there it remains, on my Amazon wishlist. Lol.

Edit 2- I just remembered why I added it! I bought it to add to my cats' food since I have one cat that is prone to UTIs and a boy, who by default would be prone to them. Adding the powder version to my cart now.

Also, would "cats' " be right if I'm talking about multiple cats of mine? Or would I just say cats? Halp!

u/Hiker206 · 16 pointsr/running

If you're concerned for waste, I really enjoy clickheat
I use these for hiking. You boil them and then they be reused again. They last around 30ish minutes once they are clicked.

u/TheSoberCannibal · 14 pointsr/cfs

1 SleepPhones wireless headphones is definitely the best single thing I've got since getting sick. Listening to audiobooks has been one of my main activities but I'd end up with my earbud wires wrapped around my neck. These I can sleep on in any position very comfortably and pull them down over my eyes when it's too bright. Must have.

2 on that note, an Audible subscription is also really good. You can gift books individually or a couple months of subscription time.

3 This heating pad is the best one I've found after much experimentation. Heats up really fast to a good temperature and is very flat flexible so you can wrap it around aching muscles.

4 This massage stick is also very nice for especially achy muscles that are hard to get into. It's really helped me break up some of my worst spots.

5 My wife bought and hung this hammock for me so I could get outside a little. Cheap, works well, and lets me see the sky a little again.

6 A kombucha brew kit has been pretty fun for me, doesn't take much effort for a good payoff, and supports healthy gut bacteria. There's not much more to it than making tea and mixing it in jars with fruit. Plus a lot of waiting around, but we're doing that anyway...

7 Finally, and this one is weird as a gift but it's still helped me a lot, is a subscription to Freshly. Freshly is a weekly food delivery service like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh, but they send you complete ready to heat meals instead of ingredients to cook with. Very high quality fresh food. I think of it as heating up really good leftovers. Been super helpful for me as cooking and doing dishes became too difficulty.

u/Xanatos903 · 13 pointsr/guns

> Also, because stupid people do stupid shit with dangerous stuff, we need to ban it. Because fuck everyone else who uses it properly.
You know what else can blow up a house? Natural gas. And fertilizer (same shit as Tannerite, really). And gasoline fumes. And probably millions of other household chemicals.
Hey, let's ban gasoline because some dumbass tried to use it to light a bonfire and blew himself up. Or hey, lets ban bleach because someone could use it in their toilet and piss in it, making mustard gas!

I'm with you.

So tannerite is basically just a mixture of ammonium nitrate (scary chemical name!), and aluminum powder. Both of these have very legitimate uses that would make regulation nearly impossible. Aluminum powder is useful for model rockets and fireworks, and ammonium nitrate has uses outside of fertilizers. For example, whenever may lab does outreach to schools, we buy it in large quantities in let kids make cold-packs with it since it absorbs a great deal of energy when dissolving. If you've ever held one of those instant cold-packs with a little pocket of water that you pop to activate, you've probably held nearly a quarter-pound of ammonium nitrate in your hands.

Incidentally, I decided to look up a link to purchase those, and I think y'all would enjoy the first review.

>For those of you purchasing this with Aluminum Powder - 5 micron - 2 Pounds you may find it interesting to know that there is about 6.5 lbs of the active ingredient in this 24 pack, or about $2.70 / lb, a pretty good deal considering others are asking around $5/lb in bulk.

In a nutshell, people being stupid shouldn't affect the supply of useful materials.

Get an electric one that plugs into the wall.

These are good. 180watt. I have super old one that claims "40watts" but the damn thing will near burn you without the cover.. So I'd assume for the extra thickness this one has, plus the higher wattage it will balance out. I like mine super hot anyway too. Oh and it's got a 2 hour run timer.. So no need for falling asleep with it on for 5 hours waking up thankful your blanket didn't catch fire.

u/jim-p · 8 pointsr/migraine

I have one of these. It's nice, but I do wish the ice pack parts were softer.

u/OjosDeLuna · 7 pointsr/SkincareAddiction


  • Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser- I loooooooove this cleanser, not a HG item since it's not like it works miracles on my skin or anything, but it doesn't irritate or break me out or any of the stuff that usually happens to my skin.
  • Josie Maran Argan Oil- I know, I know. It's overpriced. But it's so easy to pick up a little $10 (or $14? I can't remember) bottle when in line at Sephora. I don't think I'll be repurchasing because I might have found a replacement.
  • Coconut oil- My skin (on my body) loves this shit. Baby soft err'day. And my hair drinks it up too. I haven't had a haircut in almost a year and this helps my postpone my haircut until I decide what I want to do with it.
  • Sample of F.A.B Ultra Repair Cream- It's okay. I didn't irritate my skin or cause a breakout, and it moisturized my skin well without feeling greasy, but it feels too plain for the price.


  • Nuetrogena Naturals Purifying Face Wash- I hate this shit. My face hates it. Even my sister (who isn't at all into skincare and will basically use whatever is in the bathroom) hates it. It irritated my skin and seriously dried out my sisters face.

  • St Ives Exfoliating Pads- They're very gentle. Brighten my skin overall, but do almost nothing for my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These irritated my sister's skin, which is strange because her skin hardly ever gets irritated, but maybe because it was her first time using any sort of chemical exfoliation (she's 17, I'm not forcing skincare products onto a 6 or 7 year old).

  • Stridex Maximum Strength pads (red box)- I haven't worked up the courage to use these on my face, put they do a pretty good job with my bacne! At first I was like "fuck this shit" because after I used them on my back a few days, I started getting these big cystic pimples. I attributed them to the Stridex and just tossed them with the rest of the skincare rejects under my sink. But because I'm stupid and am not one to learn her lesson the first time, I tried them again. And tada, they worked and didn't cause big red angry bumps. I'm still not sure what caused them the first time.

  • Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel- I wash my face with this when I feel that raw honey won't be enough. I like the way it feels and smells, and it doesn't irritate my skin.

  • More Raw Honey- Probably tied with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser for my favorite cleanser. I love the way it leaves my skin moisturized and soft.

  • Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask!!!- I'm excited I finally bought something that's talked about on the sub. I just got his two days ago. Spot tested it on my chin, no bad reaction, so I tried it on my forehead and nose yesterday. No big improvement, but I like the way it feels. I also think it brought some of the little bumps on my forehead to a head, so I popped those little suckers this morning. (sorry for the gross imagery, I'm a picker, I can't help it)

  • Last, but not least... Hemp Oil <3 - I got it as a replacement for jojoba oil since it had a zero on the comedogenic scale (I don't know why I still really check it since something could be an absolute zero on the scale and still fuck my face up). I mixed it with some coconut oil when I got it, and oh my sweet god, it was the best body moisturizer ever. The richness of the coconut oil and the lightness of the hemp oil combined perfectly to create heavenly soft skin on my legs. I'm still not sure if I like it on my face ( I like the way it feels but I'm not sure if its clogging my pores). I decided to drink some in my smoothies at the same time I decided to try it on my face, and I broke out in a small rash/whiteheads around my mouth and chin area. This happens whenever I try to take any sort of Omega supplements, and I'm not sure why. :(

    TL;DR: I'm sorry this is so long. I buy and try a lot of things.
u/brainhugs · 7 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I also used to get UTIs pretty much every month for a 2-3 year period of my life. It was hell. My doctor kept prescribing me antibiotics, which I took so often I think the bacteria in my urethra became resistant. There was one time I was in so much pain for so long I took too much Nitrofurantoin (the antibiotic) that it wiped out the 'good bacteria' in my system and I gave myself a yeast infection... on top of my UTI :(.

I was taking concentrated cranberry pills and drinking my weight in water daily, but I was always on the verge of getting a UTI. I would get one any time I had sex with my partner or drank more than one alcoholic beverage in a day.

I was so frustrated and miserable and worried that this was going to be my reality for the rest of my life. It was my partner who actually dug deep on the internet and found D-mannose, which is a sugar that's used to promote a healthy urinary tract. I am not a homeopathic/alternative medicine person, but I was desperate and totally down to try a sugar pill or anything that might help. Apparently the way that the D-mannose sugar molecule is structured, it attracts and bonds really well with the kind of bacteria molecules that grow in your urinary tract and cause the UTI.

D-mannose has changed my life. I think I've gotten an actual UTI once in the last 4 years (and I was in Indonesia). I use it when I think I might feel one coming on, and also as a preventative when I know I'll be drinking a lot or when there will be an extended period of time when I'll be more at risk (e.g. camping). It's mind blowing to me that I suffered for so long and talked to my doctor every 3-4 months to try to figure this out and just kept getting prescribed antibiotics. It was a huge learning moment for me with medicine and doctors. I ask every doctor I see now if they know about D-mannose, and so far no one has.

I can't know if this works for everyone, but I try to share this story with any many women as possible, because D-mannose has helped me get my life back. It's also cheap, you don't need a prescription, and it's on Amazon Prime! (Also in Whole foods for double the price if you're not able to order online -- I haven't seen it anywhere other than health food stores, but hopefully one day). Here's the one that I order:

If this helps just one person I'll be happy! Hope the meds you got cleared it up for you :)

u/brotherhobbes · 7 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

My GF has heating strip that can be warmed up in the microwave (something like this thing or this one, although a different brand/model). So I pop it in the microwave a couple minutes and she can the lay it on her tummy or wherever it is needed.

The heat from it lasts quite awhile and it has a really pleasant smell. I keep warming it up for her as needed. I also provide back rubs and foot rubs. Rubbing her lower back sometimes helps and the foot rubs just feel great and help her relax.

Something else to look at is what form of birth control you two are using. I mention this because the Tri-Sprintec my GF is taking really, really reduced her cramping and pain. Something to discuss with her OB/GYN and whatever Doctor is involved with this kidney stuff. It took about two months for her body to get used to this birth control, but after that things were much better. Still some pain and cramps, but it is no longer debilitating.

u/When_In_Doubt_ · 7 pointsr/ems

K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple, Stupid. Words to live by!

Gloves. Just your standard Nitrile gloves. I have a box in my closet with about 5 pair in my truck. Although with Texas summers here, I'd bet they've melted together by now. I should really check on that...

Safety Glasses Any brand will do. Just look for ANSI Z87.1. You'll probably never use them, or 90% of what's in your bag, but they're nice to have on hand.

Knife w/seat belt cutter & window punch. This is mine. I keep it on my trucks visor when I'm driving, and on me when I'm not. Cheap and useful. A little big though.

Simple Breathing mask. Always good to have around.

Gauze Rolls & Gauze Pads. I've used these a couple times, all on myself. I have the uncanny ability to fall when running outdoors. It's truly a gift.

Large SAM Splint. Surprisingly I've used two in only a year of building my kit. Once for myself, colles fracture from tripping, and the second time for a friend who slipped in my kitchen. We're not the most coordinated bunch.

And if you're feeling adventuress (sp?), Emergency Blanket, Cold Pack, & a Hot Pack. These aren't necessary, but nice to have if you have some extra $$$ to burn.

This is all i carry in my truck medical wise. It's also a good idea to have a flashlight on your vehicle or in the bag. Don't waste money on anything "fancy". You'll never use them and if you do you'll probably get sued.

I received a pre-stocked jump bag from a family member as a gift for getting my EMT cert. Came with OPA's, C-Collar, Adult/Pedi BVM, & a couple suture kits. These are no-no's. Good Samaritan laws won't protect you if you use these. DON'T BUY/USE THEM WHEN NOT ON A RIG! (The suture kits are another matter...just don't) I took these out of my bag completely.

TL;DR K.I.S.S. Avoid anything a non-EMS person couldn't use.

EDIT: Formatting

u/therevenantrising · 7 pointsr/progun

Do people not realize that anyone can make this stuff? It's just ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder.

You can get the ammonium nitrate from instant cold packs and aluminum powder is readily available on Amazon if you're too lazy to make it yourself.

u/whatisAlabama · 6 pointsr/pics

I’m the real OP. [Here’s a link to the exact one I ordered on Amazon that’s pictured!](Sunbeam 731-500 Heating Pad with Ultra Heat Technology

u/CaptainCoral · 6 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Not specifically, I use this, and will usually lay down with it on a pillow while I watch TV or something.... The cold compress doesn't work as well for me.

u/md9531 · 6 pointsr/AskReddit

D-Mannose is seriously a miracle worker! The powder kind, not the pills though. It's all natural and it really does work! Plus, she can take it every day as a precaution (just a teaspoon mixed with juice or water) and if she feels one coming on just up the dosage until she can get in to the doctor. This has helped both of my grandmas tremendously (apparently when you get older, UTIs become near constant?). Please, buy her some of this and have her try it!

u/operator-as-fuck · 6 pointsr/MMA

just hopping in to let you guys know that this shit is literally amazing

seriously it's like a super icy hot or something. Pretty instant relief and it's last as well, I've noticed an almost overnight improvement with with my shins (some parts kicking, some parts minor shinsplints). Especially if you massage your muscles intensely while applying it. I cannot recommend this stuff highly enough.

u/RollWave_ · 6 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

I remember back when the most important accessory was an external battery.

Hard to believe I used to be able to walk outside for 6 hours and never have any issues besides battery life.

Nowadays the most important accessory I have to carry with me is cold packs:

u/Hreidmar1423 · 6 pointsr/GooglePixel

Someone made a thread here few days ago about their Pixel phone overheating too and what he did was bought these mini ice packs and placed them behind the phoe while using VR and each pack was usable for 30 minutes up to an hour. The thing is VR is still probably a bit too "Beta" product that in future updates these overheating issues wil be things of the past.

Link to ice packs:

u/merlyn923 · 5 pointsr/reptiles

It's really all pretty simple. Keep them in a opaque rubbermaid tub. Cut a hole in the lid and hot glue a piece of screening to prevent escapes. You don't need any substrate - the roach frass will quickly accumulate and make a nice substrate. The nymphs actually tend to eat the frass, so you don't want to disturb or clean it too often. For heat, get a human heating pad. I use this one. Works like a charm. Put it under the tub on one side. Then you just need egg flats for them to hide/live in. You can order them online for cheap, or see if any restaurants have extras/left overs they are willing to give you. I got 70 flats for about $10. As for food, my opinion is that laying chicken feed is the best option. You can always throw in extra/old veggies and fruit as well - just don't give them anything that might be toxic to your reptiles. They do LOVE oranges though, and it puts them into sexual hyperdrive. For water, you can use water crystals. These absorb water, so there is no pool of water for the roaches to drown in.

My only other advice - let the colony do its thing for 4-6 months before you start regularly feeding out of it. They take that long to reach maturity, and if you fed out of the colony before then, it may collapse or not reach stable population of multiple sized roaches.

u/madam_metempsychosis · 5 pointsr/leaves

I gritted my teeth and soldiered through it au naturel, I averaged 4-6 hours a night for the first 4 months or so. I felt like it was rebound everything--I had spent so long in a haze of pot, that suddenly there was so much to do--we can survive on 4-6 hours sleep a night for a few months. Hell, new parents do it, we new leaves can do it too!

What helped me: hot camomile tea and microwave neck wraps.

u/RazzBeryllium · 4 pointsr/hamsters

What I would do is get a plain old heating pad (something like this) and stick it under the tank (not in it!) so that the heat radiates up through the bottom. HOWEVER, don't have it extend the full length of the bottom of the tank -- maybe only half or a third. If the pad heats up more than it should, you don't want to overheat your hamster.

The ones made for pets tend to be gentler, so you could also try something like this.

For warmer bedding, you can try Kapok shell fluff (like this, but can also be bought at PetCo). It has shorter fibers than the cotton fluff that causes controversy, so is safer for your ham.

Also get a space heater and put your ham near it (but not too close, because you don't want to go overboard and overheat them).

u/TheMaskedMarauder · 4 pointsr/Cooking

my heating pad is a Sunbeam... same kind of heating pad you might use to soothe a pain in your back or shoulder.

This isn't the same model but it looks pretty much the same

Sorry, don't have a camera at the moment. If interest in this post persists I'll post a pic.
I can describe it i think... take a towel, fold it in half, then half again. place the heating pad on top of the towel. Roll the towel and heating pad up (like a cinnamon roll). Place the roll into a pot and allow it to unroll, leaving an open space in the center.

This is the glass cylinder jar I use.. the tallest in this pic. Place that in the center.

should I try to clarify more?

I experimented with water first, to make sure I could maintain the 110-120 degrees required. I use a probe thermometer to keep watch on the process.

u/TXDRMST · 4 pointsr/MuayThai

I've heard THIS STUFF is the "real deal", but I just use Tiger Balm on the rare occasion I feel sore enough where I can't tough through it. After my first few classes though, I basically bathed in it.

u/Urdnot_Vex · 4 pointsr/masseffect
u/Vanbone · 4 pointsr/migraine

That does look like a really good product. For my money though, this cold headband is less than 1/5 the cost and it's met my needs well. I keep 2 at home, 1 at work and 1 at my girlfriends house.

Covering the eyes is probably great sometimes, but I can put this on at the first hint of migraine and wear it no matter what else I'm doing. I'll usually start wearing one of these long before I resort to dark room rest

u/partelo · 4 pointsr/NewOrleans

I finally couldn't take it anymore and they gave me Ajovy (the monthly injection) and I haven't had ONE migraine since. It's a miracle. Other than that, Aleve, the headache hat, and diet coke

u/daleyjem · 4 pointsr/GearVR

I get these and put 'em in the freezer to make sure it doesn't overheat... fits pretty well between the phone and the back plate:

Also, wipe finger and face oil off of phones and lenses. Battery should probably be at least 50% depending on amount of usage.

u/the320x200 · 4 pointsr/GearVR

Yup, these are the ones I use. They work pretty well, you won't have any overheating problems. The downsides are added weight and initially before the phone warms up sometimes they cool the whole headset too much and the lenses fog up.

u/mystikhybrid · 3 pointsr/fermentation

I use a $15 back warming pad (for treating back pain). Wrap your container with the pad, then with an outer blanket or cloth to keep the heat in. Before you try ferments, fill your container with just water and place a thermometer in for a few hours, then pick from the 3 settings (low/medium/high) that best suit the temperature you want.

More advanced method (and an additional $15):Wire up an STC-1000 to precisely control the temperature (you can set any temp and it will turn any device you plug into it on or off to reach desired tempurature)

u/Lady_Noodle · 3 pointsr/InfertilityBabies

For anyone out there with back pain, I highly recommend getting a heating pad like this one. It's been a huge help the last few days. They should turn off automatically after about 45 minutes so you don't have them on all night. I rearrange them when I wake up depending on what's bothering me:

u/Stop-spasmtime · 3 pointsr/ChronicPain

The one I have is simular to the one you linked, but my mother in law made a nice fleece cover over it so it's even more comfy.

I use it pretty often, and I've had it for four years with no issues.

Sunbeam 732-500 King Size Heating Pad with UltraHeatTechnology

u/StingrayVC · 3 pointsr/FeminineNotFeminist

I don't take a capsule. I take this kind, but I chose it because it had good reviews. I wanted something cold pressed and unrefined.

I was just looking in the mirror and I noticed that my skin does look better. Now, I've been outside in the sun a lot and that always makes my skin look better (with sunscreen and a hat) and I've also been eating really well, which also makes my skin look really good, so I don't know for sure what it is, but I'm hopeful this is adding to it.

u/youngmakeupaddict · 3 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Mineral oil breaks me out personally (I'm in a tiny minority, it works for p much everyone else haha so don't worry too much), but when I used it I just bought any baby oil that was unfragranced (just has one ingredient on the back - paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil). Johnson's does one called 'First Touch'. You can use regular fragranced mineral oil if your skin isn't sensitive.

Hemp oil wise, just buy any cold-pressed 100% hemp seed/hemp oil off Amazon. This would be a decent example :)

There's two formulas for Nivea creme, one that's made in Mexico (and available in the US) and one that's made in Germany (and available in Europe and the UK). The German formula is meant to be far superior, but if it's too difficult to get a hold of I wouldn't worry at all, they're both super moisturising. Be aware, though, they are SUPER thick. Like, it feels almost like nappy rash cream when you put it on your face, haha. You just have to rub it in for a couple minutes.

u/youngfabian · 3 pointsr/trees

suggest to her to try adding hemp oil to her diet, it supposed to help cure corhn's disease, it has tons of benefits and it wouldn't hurt to try it.
here are some of the reviews

u/xxharmxx · 3 pointsr/NaturalBeauty

Thanks for the links! I'll check out the online reviews for the wax. Maybe I can even PM Whollyhemp.

I'm using Nutiva organic cold pressed hempseed oil and started breaking out really badly with whiteheads the next day. It was terrible. I used it for OCM.

u/yetifunk · 3 pointsr/cfs

I used to go through phases where I’d get at least 1 UTI a month for 5 months in a row. It got to the point where I’d just burst into tears every time I realized I had another one and was SO anxious having sex or drinking anything besides water. I forget where I read about it (might have been on here) but I started drinking a teaspoon of D-Mannose powder in a glass of water every day and haven’t had a single one since. It’s been a little over 2 years. I still have other bladder issues like frequency, trouble emptying, etc. but no infection or pain.

This is the one I buy. It comes in capsule form too but didn’t find it as effective. Plus, the powder tastes really good.

It can be a little pricey but beyond worth it imo. UTIs are ass. I hope this or something else you find helps <3

u/thr33littlebirds · 3 pointsr/kratom

Coming from a woman who has chronic UTIs: Kratom has had no direct effects, positive or negative (for me at least) when dealing with a bladder infection. One thing that's monumentally important while battling a UTI is flushing your system. Because kratom can dry you out, it's important to drink massive amounts of water to flush out your bladder.

I've tried all the treatments, and been through way too many antibiotic treatments for UTIs. After seeing several dozen doctors, my most recent recommended D-Mannose. It's a god send.

It's a sugar that binds with bacteria in your bladder and continues through your UTI tract, flushing the bacteria away. I use it both preventative and as a treatment. I get infections a tenth as often as I used to. I highly recommend it if you struggle with bladder infections.

Best of luck!

u/coloradyo · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I'm assuming you're most definitely not a mutant, but for lack of knowledge in this field, I'll throw out a few suggestions. When I talked with my GYN about UTI-like symptoms, she recommended making dietary changes regarding bladder/urethral irritants. Mostly taking out tomatoes, really starchy or citrus-y foods. I've seen similar recommendations floating around for individuals with forms of interstitial cystitis.

here's a link

and this opens up the document with a comprehensive food trigger listing

Something else I've seen thrown around here has been the mention of D-Mannose, which can be used in powder or pill format. It's meant to prevent bacteria from adhering to urethral walls and therefore causing or escalating symptoms. I forget the full details, but it's something about the bacteria being heavily attracted to the sugar particles or something. I haven't seen it in many stores (but if you have a local Rite Aid, most carry it mixed with cranberry pills), though it seems to be fairly popular on Amazon.

here's one of the more popular versions

u/TheConeOfShame805 · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

D Mannose changed my life. Seriously. Trick is how you take it: if you feel a UTI coming on:

  • pee first if you need to
  • put a teaspoon in a small amount of water (like 4 oz), mix, drink
  • this is the critical part: don't drink anything for about 45-60 minutes.
  • Then, when 45-60 minutes is up, drink a ton of water and pee

    You can repeat this if you want, but I have found that 1 or 2 times stops a UTI in its tracks. If you have a raging UTI, then do it every 1-2 hours for a bit. You could also use it preventitavely, such as after sex or before you go to sleep, for example.

    D-Mannose works by binding to e-coli in your bladder. (UTIs happen when the e-coli sticks to the walls of you bladder - so anything you can do to keep the e-Coli moving along and out is good. Cranberry has the effect of making the walls slippery and harder for e-coli to stick to). Then you pee all of it out (the e-coli and the d-mannose). e-coli is the cause of most UTIs, but occasionally it can be something else.

    You can buy it on Amazon for cheap but if you can't wait, I got mine once at Whole Foods for way more $$. You might also find it at a local vitamin type store. Definitely get the powder form - the capsules are good for travel but I feel less effective.

    No side effects for me. My understanding is your body does not absorb d-mannose. It's been a great, over the counter alternative to antibiotics, which mess up my gut flora, BCPs effectiveness etc.

    Of course, if this doesn't work quickly, or you have more severe symtoms (such as a fever), definitely go to a doctor.

    On a side note, there were some studies (or urban legends) a few years back that chicken is a major contributor to UTIs. I cut down on chicken (as well as occasionally taking d-mannose preventatively after sex) and have not had any UTIs for about a year
u/DealCrush · 3 pointsr/Healthyhooha

I’ve had one that I had to take 7 days of antibiotics in the past 2 years and that was only because I got lazy and wasn’t taking the D-mannose everyday. I now take 1000mg every night before bed in the capsule form (NOW brand) and if I feel symptoms coming on I take 2000 mg by powder every day for 7 days in addition to the 1000mg (2 capsules) before bed and haven’t had a full blown UTI since. I also recommend ordering the UTI test strips (you can get them cheap on Amazon) and test your urine from time to time. If the test strips indicate bacteria (even if you have no symptoms) up your dose of D-mannose daily until it’s back to normal range.

What I use:

UTI test strips -

D-mannose powder -

D-mannose capsules -

u/gold3nhour · 3 pointsr/migraine

Fellow migraineur, here! I agree with you. It’s not a competition and I make sure people around me are informed of what migraines actually are—NOT “just a headache.” We learn to live in spite of the pain, period.

I always had migraines and they got worse after I had a (hemorrhagic) stroke. Long story, but the short version is I had a brain aneurysm we didn’t know I had, until it ruptured and nearly killed me. I was in my mid 20s when I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke, which is not the same as an ischemic stroke although either one is a seriously life threatening and life altering event! I am VERY blessed and grateful to be alive and function as well as I do. I know I seem “normal,” but oh is that so false!

I’ve had neuropsychological evaluations, so many diagnostic tests, medical bills and records to show just how real this invisible illness is. With that said, I don’t spend time or energy I don’t have to spend, trying to convince someone I’m in severe pain. It’s just not worth it! I totally understand the frustration, though.

I’ve had chronic migraines ever since my emergency brain surgery, and along with now having an acquired brain injury, I’ve had to make myself find a way to keep going! It’s very much do or die, and most days it feels like do even though I feel like I’m dying.

I’m seven and a half years out, next week, and I can say with 100% confidence, it’s very possible to look “normal” while you’re falling apart inside. You just find a way to keep moving.

One suggestion I learned from lurking this sub for over a year before I even joined Reddit, the headache hat!!! I’ve been on 13 medications (very much trial and error—felt like a science experiment sometimes) since February 2012, and thankfully Aimovig works well for me so far, but NOTHING has helped the way this has. I am down to three medications, two preventatives, one rescue.

Sometimes the headache hat by itself is just what I need to relax and relaxing allows me to reset my mind by not focusing so much on the pain.

It’s so difficult to relax when you’re in pain and are so tired of it, I know. The little things like this really do help! I even made sure my neurologist knew to please share this with other patients. It has been a huge help to me!

Link to the headache hat on amazon:

And if anyone needs a way to keep a record of migraines, the MigraineBuddy app (learned about it in this sub too) is awesome!

Hope this can help someone else, too. I’m glad this sub exists because it validates so much and it helps to share stories and know you’re not alone.

Y’all take care!

u/MyBeerBelly · 3 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

I literally use ice packs, got the idea from a sub on VR. These guys were maxing their devices' capability with VR and within 30 minutes you could fry an egg on the bag of the phone. They suggested using reusable ice packs and so I got these. They only last about 30 minutes before losing effectiveness, as it gets warmer it will probably be worse. But they keep gym battles smooth as needed and for long sessions of transferring trash pokemon and items.

u/sammi_1723 · 3 pointsr/Healthyhooha

If you are stopping the antibiotics and want to try some other treatments you could try d-mannose. I swear by that stuff! There’s one on amazon that has hibiscus in it also and it’s magical. this one.
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 8oz water twice a day for a couple days works pretty well too. Just don’t over do it on the baking soda!

u/kiphlthy · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

Hi, I would definitely advise you to stop using antibiotics to treat UTIs. The reason is simple. Yes with the use of antibiotics, you are going to get better. But and a big BUT what happens when it recurs? And it will eventually. People tend to take another round of antibiotics and another without realizing the dangers you are exposing yourself to by taking all those antibiotics.

Try going the natural way. By this I mean manage a healthy lifestyle:

  1. Drink lots of water

  2. reduce caffeine, alcohol and smoking

  3. Start using probiotics

  4. D-Mannose

  5. hibiscus Extracts

  6. Boost your intake of vitamin C'

  7. Try using natural supplements: A good recommendation will be Harmony by Eu Natural. It is made completely from natural herbal extracts like those that I mentioned, vitamins and minerals. and very highly recommended.


    Try doing the things I advised and avoid those that I mentioned. Eat healthy food, vegetables, fruits and I guarantee, you will not be needing any antibiotics of any kind
u/dalcadas · 3 pointsr/Healthyhooha

UTI queen here. I usually get 1-2 per month, typically because of a wide range of reasons. Most notably I get them after sex.

All of the things people mentioned already (pee after sex, drink water, avoid this and that, etc.), while beneficial, never did anything but make me stress about UTIs even more. If you’re like me, you’ve accepted that you’re more prone to them no matter what you do, so the most important thing is killing them without turning to antibiotics. (Taking antibiotics that frequently was concerning my gyno because of the possibility of developing antibiotic resistance.)

So now whenever I feel a UTI coming on, or when I wake up in the throes of one, I take high concentration d-mannose pills. You can find them anywhere. I get mine from Amazon. I’ve tried two brands: one and two

I tried #1 first and they worked beautifully! But I switched to #2 because you get more for your money. But I might switch back because #1 is slightly faster-acting. You’re supposed to take them as daily supplements—I don’t cause I get lazy, but they work just as well as emergency meds. I don’t even have to take those AZO pills that make your pee orange (unless it’s a particularly strong infection).

I haven’t had to touch an antibiotic since and my gyno says I’m completely healthy. (I also suck at drinking water.) Good luck!

EDIT: As for yeast infections, I got tired of dropping money on Monistat, so I take a Boric Acid suppository once a week or, when I get one, everyday until it’s gone. For general maintenance, I use Summer’s Eve Aloe Love Cleansing Wash, though I don’t know if that actually does anything. At the very least, it’s not harmful and claims to balance your PH.

You should be able to ask for “what do I do at home to continue recovering? This is helping but I need to get an at home program since my therapy is ending. If I go back to training now I’ll injure myself. What do you recommend?” Let me be blunt. If you’re like me you put a smile on your face and say you’re fine. Make sure they know where you’re at pain wise and the fear of reinjuring. This way if they need to get more therapy approved they do that but you should ask for a program to transition to at home. Usually you should get a packet of exercises.

What else can help? Of course autophagy (some of us get really odd pains in areas that it seems to be working on, just so you know it happens
). Tens unit can help with pain. Dr prescribed pain patches (not opioids) called flector patches. You can get it in a cream too. Make sure you check what is cheapest if you’re in the US and if it’s pricey. The cream make sure to wash your hands and keep it away from pets and children. There’s a pill all else fails if you can’t afford patches/cream. The patch contains diclofenac but if you go on this and bruise another option is meloxicam. There are more but those are very common anti inflammatory. FYI do not get on a heating pad in the area with any anti inflammatory patch. The heat makes the meds come out quicker.

Over the counter options. Biofreeze (get the roll bottle) is a nice menthol freeze that helps a lot of people. Buy a heating pad. Get one of the new ones with the plush velvet. They look like this. Pure Enrichment PureRelief XL King Size Heating Pad (Charcoal Gray) - Fast-Heating Machine-Washable Pad - 6 Temperature Settings, Moist Heat Therapy Option, Auto Shut-Off and Storage Bag - 12" x 24" like the prescriptions I mentioned above I would see what the dr recommends if they want you to try an over the counter nsaid. Any NSAID can have side effects I just feel it’s safer to discuss with the dr if you’re on them any significant time.

If you buy a tens if not covered by insurance and need to save a few dollars you can buy a used one that works off eBay. There are hybrid ones that do tens, ems and a few other things if you look up the info and find you want more than tens. The replacement pads for it are cheap so just buy some wherever you find cheapest. Another thing that helps is the gyms warm pool if yours has one. Time in the jacuzzi if they have one. Otherwise a good hot bath with Epsom salts. Good luck!

u/Polydactylcat44 · 3 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

Also agree that seeing an MD would be wise!
I don’t know very much about the legal system, but it sounds like you have literal years of medical documentation of her refusing needed treatment. That really seems to me like she should be made to pay for all of your treatment now, as a bare minimum. Talking to a lawyer would be a really good idea, I bet you have some form of legal recourse here.
Also, I have chronic pain and I have a heat pad that I use for at least 4 hrs almost every day, and it has really improved my quality of life.
I upgraded to this huge fancy one a while ago, but there are many cheaper options!

Place the cage on top of a heating pad (set on LOW heat), the warmth will radiate up to warm the bedding. Make sure the cage has LOTS of bedding for them to burrow in for warmth. Put the heating pad under 1/2 of the cage, so that if it gets too warm they can move to the other side to cool down.

Aside from that, I have heated pads that my cats love to sleep on. I've had them for over four years now and they're still working great! You just have to make sure you set them on low only, as the medium and high settings get too hot to handle for more than a few minutes at a time.

nope, if you do a sour mash it only takes a few extra days.

  • basically mash as normal (you can do this with extract too) and instead of boiling your wort, transfer it to a bucket and add in a couple handfuls of unmilled grain once it gets down to around 120 deg F. wrap a heat pad around it and let it sit a few days.. trying it as you go until you are happy with how sour it is.

  • then you boil (optional even, I do 30 min since i'm happy with the sourness at that point) and add any hops if you want.. cool it, add your yeast.. once it's done fermenting transfer it to a secondary on top of the blackberries.

    nice part about sours are that you don't have to worry too much about sterilizing the fruit. i usually just freeze them and then put them right into the secondary. bigger fruit i just chop up first and freeze them.

    if you actually decide to do it this heat pad works great because it doesn't auto shut off and keeps a 6 gallon bucket at around 110-120 consistently -
u/sciamatic · 2 pointsr/pics

The best thing you can do is find a rescue -- usually your local wildlife shelter will have a list of "squirrel fosters", who are private citizens who will take in squirrels to rehab.

In the meantime, there are two BIG issues: heat, hydration.

People immediately think "food", but they will die of dehydration much faster than starvation. If they fell from their mom's nest and haven't been rescued, they may have been without hydration for some time.

Go to your local grocery store. In the "baby" section they will have a product called "Pedialyte". Pedialyte is an electrolyte replacement for babies with diarhea, and it is excellent for rehydrating. Get the unflavored version. Warm it up(TEST the heat; do not give them accidentally boiled liquid), and feed it to them with a syringe, or a dropper if you can't get a syringe.

Try to give them some more hydration every hour to two hours, for the first several "feedings." Digestion is dehydrating -- giving them food immediately can be fatal.

They need to be kept in a warm place. A box with towels and a heating pad or hot water bottle underneath will do(I know this link won't help you right now, but this heating pad on Amazon is a lifesaver if you look after orphaned animals. It is the only heating pad I know off that doesn't FREAKING TURN ITSELF OFF as a safety measure. This has been indispensable for me, looking after kittens, as I need it to stay on a low setting constantly, to keep their body heat up). Don't place them directly on a heating pad or hot water bottle. Again, you're looking for WARM, not HOT. Always err on the side of slightly less warm than you would think. You'd be surprised how much a space warms up when you leave a pad under a couple of towels.

For food, once you have them hydrated, they will take puppy formula(Esbilac).

Honestly, just read this: Baby Squirrel Care.

Also, don't underestimate a good local vet. While most vets are not at all wildlife care experts, you'd be surprised what animal lovers will do to save a life. They may also have contacts for people who can help you.

The majority of people who rescue squirrels, possums and raccoons -- "nuisance" animals -- are not officials with the wildlife service, or officially sanctioned rehab centers. They are almost always private citizens who became backdoor experts because some infant animal landed on their doorstep and they had to work it out. Wildlife centers and vets often know these individuals, and will make use of them as a foster home, as the centers usually have their hands full dealing with endangered and higher priority animals.

u/ihcun · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I had that for awhile. It occurred most noticeably after I took the course of antibiotics prescribed for it. It was like you described - very mild sensation of UTI, not awful, but enough to make you notice it all day. So I took these cranberry pills once a day, and also used this D-mannose powder. I'm not sure which one worked because I was doing them both, but the UTI went away completely after a week of doing those. And whenever I thought I felt it coming back, I'd just take a cranberry pill and it'd disappear. I haven't had it since, and I'm not taking the pills anymore.

And this is the part I'm hesitant to say because there's absolutely no scientific evidence backing this up, but I stopped eating the sausage meat from McDonalds. Because both of the times I had really severe UTIs, I'd had sex and gotten a sausage biscuit from McD's the next morning. I'm pretty sure it's a mental thing, but I can't eat sausage biscuits from there anymore.

u/Oranges13 · 2 pointsr/cats

Here's links to the products I use.

D-Mannose is basically the distilled cranberry sugar that helps with urinary problems (and you obviously can't make your cat drink cranberry juice). I use the gelcaps and give him half of one per meal mixed in with his wet food (so about 500mg per day (1/2 tsp) while he seems to be having issues). I only give it to him if he seems more highly stressed out or has been licking his bottom more frequently and it has cleared up those symptoms. Usually for about 5 days until I am certain it won't recur. Unfortunately if he's already blocked or in a more serious state it can't do anything to help that :(

The product linked above is just the powder without the gelcaps, which is slightly less expensive.

Glucosamine Sulfate is the same stuff they give to people with joint issues. It's good for that but also lowers inflammation overall and has been shown to help rebuild the bladder lining. I give him 1/2 capsule twice daily mixed into his food. Again this is only given when he seems to be showing symptoms rather than at all times.

u/StaceyMS · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Ohh...maybe I can help. I had a major surgery that impacted my urinary tract and I use d-mannose capsules ( and I have found that they really work for me.

Good luck. I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

I take a little D-Mannose every day. Someone recommended it on reddit a year ago or so and it was completely out of the antibiotics/cranberry juice league: no side effects, potent as a preventative, natural, cheap. I suggest anyone with an issue for UTIs (in addition to tinkling soon after sex, within 5-10 mins) take 2-3 pea size amounts of this a day as a preventative.

Hey, you are not alone!! I’ve struggled with the same thing (even before I had sex so it’s not always sex related, like you said). I remember wanting to scream when someone told me to “wipe front to back” one more time...

I finally figured out what works best for me, and I think a lot of other girls would benefit too. The first thing is HYDRATION. I mean, really hydrate. Drink at least 1-2 liters of water every single day. This is so key for prevention. When I am very well hydrated, I never get UTIs.

Second thing: Order yourself some D-Mannose from Amazon. This is a miracle supplement for UTIs, just read the reviews. There are multiple brands of D-Mannose. You can order it online or they sell it at local health food stores and places like Whole Foods.

As soon as I feel a UTI coming, or if I know I’m gonna have sex, I’ll take 2 D-Mannose pills and drink a ton of water. It works like a charm, and soo much better than being on antibiotics multiple times a year.

(Also know that since it’s a supplement it’s not officially tested or approved, but just read the reviews on Amazon).

Just don’t forget to drink water every day, like 1-2 liters (not coffee, not coke, etc). If you’re well hydrated, you’re less likely to need any supplement for UTI. Water is best for prevention.

I don't have endo, but I can empathize a little. My last period had me doubled up, crying all night, and wanting a lot of booze, chocolate and potato chips.

Not sure if you're on any medications, but have you tried red raspberry leaf tea? I found it really helps with the pains, although the taste is a bit like steamed artichoke. (Not fruity blank tea like they claim at all.) I found drinking a cup or two a day as soon as I knew I was getting ready to start reduced the cravings, bloat, discomfort, cravings and the gastro issues I get every month. (Last month was bad because I was out of tea and I started cramping at like.... 3 am. :( )

Also, my Bed Buddy is my friend that week.. Putting heat either on my hips or my lower back helps so much. I even take it to work with me.

Yoga helps take some of the monthly stress and ease my cramping. There's a few sites with recommended poses. I don't know if it helps with endo, but maybe?


As far as your goal, remember that it's long term. Even if you have a little something sweet right now to tide you over, it's temporary and you will still be ahead overall. Just, don't beat yourself up or let yourself get defeated if you relax a little. And don't look at the scale this week. If you're like me, you retain 3-4 pounds of water and it's SOOO discouraging to see, even if you know it's there and why.

Oh my goodness, yes! Boil hot water and cut up an inch of ginger root. Let the cut up root soak in the water for 5 mins and drink.

I feel like I've got the dealing-with-horrible-cramps thing mostly down to a science.

Automatically take 3-4 Advil, right away. If you have one, heat up a rice heating pad in the microwave for 1-2 minutes (depending on how hot you can take it). Then make your tea as the rice is cooling down to an acceptable place-on-body temperature. Find a comfy place to rest and curl yourself into a fetal position with the rice pack on your uterus area, drink your tea slowly, and wait for the Advil to take hold. This usually makes a day of not being able to do shit because I'm in mind boggling pain from cramps turn into a simple half hour or hour of annoying pain, then I'm well on my way to productivity again.

I would start off by adding these two things to help with that - wearing these Plantar Fasciitis socks and massaging your heel/arch every night with this cream. I did both and it helped me SO much. I'm weird and only wear the socks when I'm at work, but my mother actually sleeps in hers...but that kind of freaks me out. The socks are tight and I have weird thoughts about my foot not getting circulation and falling off or whatnot. ANYWAYS... I also don't like popping pain relief medicine, so the cream is a great way to get that inflammation down and also into your muscles...and a little goes a long way!

Shoe wise, I actually wear Merrell hiking shoes I got from REI. I've got major leg issues (from breaking my leg as a teenager, having surgery to put 2 rods in my leg, and being in a wheelchair for six months) and those hiking shoes changed everything. I wasn't able to do backpacking trips longer than a weekend before them!

I also have an awesome pair of Mizuno running shoes. I went to a local running store here in GA called Big Peach Running and they record you running and tell you what kind of shoes to buy. I kind of thought it was a gimmick, but I heard so many rave reviews and ended up loving the experience. I'd never even heard of the Mizuno brand and was wearing Asics because everyone else loves them, but it turns out they aren't really right for the way I run and the support my ankle/leg needs. They for sure know what they are talking about and were the ones that helped me with the Plantar Faciitis stuff! I'm not sure where you are located, but if you have something like that around, I would defiantly consider it!

Last thing - I also wear insoles that were recommended to me by my physical therapist (because I couldn't afford custom insoles on my college-budget at the time) called Superfeet. Here is their website. Not super expensive compared to what else is out there and they come highly suggested. That is what I wear on a day-to-day basis inside my work shoes. They are lightyears better than the Dr. Scholes inserts I was wearing before!

I've been dealing with my leg/foot pain for about 8 years now and finally feel like I'm at a point where I can manage it without being in constant pain. I hope my years of dealing with this help and your pain starts to subside!

u/IksarNecro · 2 pointsr/ffxiv

Hey man, late to the thread but I wanted to share with you what I did when I started having pain in the same hand.

This cream is magic. Use it as directed, especially put on a good amount before bed.

Another thing I did was stop mashing. I was hitting my next ability like 10 times during the gcd when it wasn't really needed. I now time my abilities and the strain is gone.

Also, buy a mechanical keyboard if it fits your budget. If you're using a membrane one where you have to depress the buttons pretty hard, that's added strain that's easily eliminated by a more sensitive mechanical board.

Good luck man.

Hey, not sure if this will be helpful but I've suffered from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis the past 17 years and I've found this arthritis joint pain to be really awesome in addition to traditional aspirin.

In addition, I've found it helpful to look for stretches on youtube for the muscles surrounding my problem areas. A lot of pain is due to muscles tensing up around injured regions, so stretches + foam rollers can help too.

If you are interested in running in the future, definitely get custom insoles from places like Roadrunner Sports. They have a bunch of tests/machines to make sure you're not putting pressure on injuries etc.

u/fastlerner · 2 pointsr/crossfit

Sounds like you need some SMR (self myofascial release). Get a beastie ball (or lacrosse ball if you don't have access) and work it into the bottom of your calf muscle and the bottom of your foot. To get the calf, sit on the floor with your butt all the way back against the wall and place the ball under your calf. Work around until you find the painful knot then lean forward and keep pressure on it. For the bottom of the foot, take off your shoe and stand on it while holding onto the rack. Work it around your sole. Working both of these areas should give you some relief. (You can also stand on a rumble roller with no shoes to work your soles, just hold onto the rack!)

The other thing I would recommend is Penetrex. This stuff is really effective at relieving plantar and tendinitis issues.

I'm not familiar with the Fingertraps, but it might be worth checking out some different shoes if the above doesn't help resolve it. Good luck!

EDIT: Don't be afraid to rest! You'll probably want to avoid runs until it's felt better for a couple weeks else you risk aggravating it again. Swap rows for runs until it's had time to heal.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/gamecollecting

You might need this as well.

u/ImALittleCrackpot · 2 pointsr/amateurradio

Bringing some instant cold packs might help. They stay cold for about 20 minutes.

u/SuperiorHedgehog · 2 pointsr/migraine

Ice is the best!

You should look into strap-on headbands that you can put ice packs in, or something like this. Having a thing to hold it onto your head, leaving you with both hands free and full mobility, is such a game changer.

u/doodlebug25 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Hmm, fascinating. I haven't tried heat yet, as I normally despise being warm and feel like, in general, being warmer makes me feel more headache-y and queasy, but maybe a specific rice pack would help, I'm going to try it! Otherwise, I've done ice on my forehead or back of the neck, and that seems to help. Even asked for one of THESE goofy-looking things for Christmas!

u/notpennys_boat · 2 pointsr/May2017Bumpers

I lived on Excedrin Migraine before getting pregnant. When I'm getting a migraine now (I get the typical "aura" so I know it's coming) I take two Tylenol and drink some soda. Then I sit with an ice pack head and on for about 30 mins. This has worked each time and stopped me from progressing into full blown migraine. This is the ice pack I use It was the first thing I bought when I found out I was pregnant. It looks silly but has been a life saver.

u/foreverbhakt · 2 pointsr/india

You might get a little relief by getting your feet wet. If your feet get cold from cool water you'll feel a little cooler for a bit.

I could cool down enough to sleep if I dumped water on me and climbed into bed naked and wet (bed directly under fan.)

Get some electrolyte packets from the chemist and mix with cold water. It's good for health generally when sweating a lot but I'm tempted to think that improving the electrolyte balance might help promote better sweating.

I find refrigerating aloe vera gel and then drinking helps make your insides feeling cooler. You can even apply that to the skin instead of the prickly heat powder.

Keeping the neck cool is important (like the feet, the head/neck temp plays a role in determining how your body feels.) I see abroad they even have speciality neck coolers. (Here's one on Reviews are mixed, but the point is...figure out some way to keep the neck cool.

I've also had a little bit of luck fooling myself with a good quality app that plays sound of rain or a thunderstorm. Like Rainy Mood or Thunderspace and headphones. Try to get lost in the sound of the rain.

Also don't forget your fan capacitor. Your fan might not be working at full speed. I used to be in an apartment with a fan whose capacitor would go bad every year. My electrician would put a new one in for like 300-400rs. Made a huge difference.

A damp towel over a fan will dry out in no time in this weather even indoors

What I did years ago when I didn't have AC in Uni was to freeze my wet towels and hang them infront of my fan

Also these stuff feel glorious, just a damp towel around your neck can help cool your body temperature

u/moonsweetie · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

So...I never been to Arizona & I just started riding this spring (winter/summer, stupid Smarch weather). But I was in Iraq and Kuwait. Obviously, I was not riding motorcycles over there. Instead, I was driving semis without air condition* all while wearing the uniform & helment & flack jacket & bullet proof vest*. All that gear in 110+ weather. It was miserable. The only thing we could do was DRINK WATER. And lots of it.Get a camelbak and just drink water.

Also, something like this is amazing! They can apparently be made easily, though I never made them, only had them in care packages :) A lot of blood pumps through your neck and keeping this cold thing on your neck helps keep that cold and thus you cold. Well, cold isn't the right word. Not hot is a better way to describe it.

And you will eventually become accustom to hot climate.

Seriously, who the hell pays $500 do REMOVE the A/C from a truck? The Army, that's who!

To piggyback onto this, I saw these recommended on a previous thread. I purchased some for after my delivery- I don't know how well they work, yet, but the reviews are good!

u/Omfgjustpickaname · 2 pointsr/migraine

I love my headache hat. It’s cubes so there are small patches without relief because it’s not one giant ice cube. It stays cold for probably 2-3 hours. I’m considering getting another so I’ll have more time with them. When that gets too warm though I’ll take some gel ice packs and tuck them under a stretchy bandana headband thing. That works well but the gel packs I have last 20 minutes tops

u/wordymslotsofwords · 2 pointsr/infertility

I also suffer from migraines and really struggled during treatment.

I found my migraines were at their worse at the beginning of new medication (estrogen, progesterone, gonadotropins... didn't matter, they all sucked), but lessened after the first week. Hopefully this will be the case for you, too. My RE said Sumatriptan (Imitrex) is safe to take during treatment and pregnancy if this is a medication that helps you. My PCP recommended daily magnesium supplements (400mg), which I do believe reduced the frequency of my migraines. I also bought a headache hat so I could at least be mobile during migraines. I loved it so much I bought a second.

Sorry you're going through this, but hope some of these suggestions help!

u/Tupley_ · 2 pointsr/braincancer

Thank you so much for responding!!! I really appreciate it! And I'm glad to hear that you did very well immediately after your surgery.

So, just to sum up:

  • In the hospital: nice pillows, soft sweaters, earbuds and music, medication tracker sheet, lattes and other comfort food? Were there foods that you would strongly recommend against?
  • At home: wedge shaped pillow, bendy straws, elastogel ice helmet (or some kind of helmet for migraines), scarves and hats? Thank you for the ice helmet tip, I think I will buy the Headache Hat (the Elastogel ice helmet is not sold in my country). Are there any other products that you think would be helpful? Any specific type of painkillers? Any house/furniture setup that might be helpful (i.e. would an angled armchair be useful?)
  • Other important things: being silly, enthusiastic and cheering her up if needed

    And can I ask, if you don't mind, what are the headaches and cognitive stuff you dealt with that prevented you from going back to work? Do you feel the quality of your life has drastically suffered? If you were in this situation (a bit older, with children in their early 20s, very little family/social support), what long-term advice would you give to your kid?
u/elynwen · 2 pointsr/migraine

This sucks. So fucking much. I’ll tell you that I know that list, except for Kratom.

The thing that dulls pain for me the most are benzodiazepines, barbiturates and the migraine hat. It wraps around and keeps your head on ice for an hour or so. I bought 4 and rotate them. Honestly, it’s such a relief compared to the many drugs we’ve taken.

Here is a link to the headache hat. . I hope it helps, if you try.

u/Lysmerry · 2 pointsr/cfs

Sure I'm happy to answer! I'm sorry you got it so young. Also that you fought so hard to keep on performing- that must have been really baffling and upsetting. I was lucky in that I knew what I had almost immediately due to my dad having something similar. I think it's healthy that we're retaining muscle tone, but may be causing symptoms because of its metabolic needs. Though I always take CFS theories with a grain of salt, Dr. Myhill's work has corresponded the best with my own experience- you can see her writing on what she believes are the metabolic causes of CFS:

As for the diagnosis, it depends what you mean by official. My main MD agrees and has written down that I have it, but I don't have any special paperwork. I basically talked it out with my doctor. I was concerned I had it because I was very tired and had intense PEM, and my father has similar issues so I knew about it. My doctor ran many many tests for alternatives, all that I personally researched and requested, and they came back negative. Basic blood tests, sleep apnea, thyroid, lyme disease, STDs, hormones and later an MRI which ruled out Lupus and MS. I sort of diagnosed myself? My doctor was a General Practitioner, not a specialist. He is a very intelligent man, but he let me decide for myself and agreed with me that it was most likely I had CFS. I've done most of my own research and decided what action to take on my own, because very few MDs know much if anything about CFS. However, I have been believed for the most part. I think a Neurologist would be more trusted than an GP for an 'official' diagnosis, but there are so many symptoms and potential causes that I feel more comfortable with a GP.

Where do you live? I live the USA and getting disability is very challenging, usually relying on a very specific test.

I've had CFS for three years. I also had a brief spell six years ago that lasted 3 months. It started with what I believe was Mono (it showed up on a test that I had had it). However that ended. My current bout came after a very serious four month depressive episode (the 3rd in my life) but no physical illness.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I haven't had any tests in a while, but will try a few just in case. I suddenly stopped being able to drink without feeling odd, so I'm going to get my liver checked, and also check for H.Pylori, a very common bacteria, because I've become more interested in the "2nd nervous system" located in the gut.

I really recommend ginger for nausea (ginger ale or ginger beer with real ginger is great, I also use pills and chews). It's the only thing that has actually helped me. I don't get headaches much, but I have this silly thing called a 'headache hat' and I love it.

Do you have shooting pains in the limbs or joint pain? I also have fibromyalgia and have some tips for you if you have it too. I've found colostrum (I take it in lactoferrin) helpful for muscle pain in general.

u/GreenHobbyist · 1 pointr/QWISOInfo

I'm not sure which one you saw. The couple I have just plug in and one has a temperature control knob on it. It doesn't give you a read-out of the actual temperature so I use a temperature gun to check the temperature when setting it up. You also don't have to limit yourself to reptile pads, basic heating pads without auto-shutoff will work. Something like this. I would probably search online until you can figure out what temperature ranges it will get to before you buy.

u/2_4_16_256 · 1 pointr/CrohnsDisease

This one looks like the one that I have. It's pretty big and I usually keep it folded in half. I really only keep it on level 1 or 2 and maybe have a pillow on top to help hold the heat in and get a little more pressure, laying on it also works.

u/OrangeCurtain · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Heat pad:

Ive just been setting the fermenter on it, but taping it on the side would probably be better. No need to heat the yeast cake.

u/PJsAreComfy · 1 pointr/Pets

Similar to that design, just got my cat this one and it's really nice. Prior to the bed, he would lie on this heating pad.

I'm trying to combine the two right now. The cat cave has a thick, plushy cushion so the pad doesn't work under it, and the pad's kind of stiff so no good on top of it. I used safety pins to secure the heating pad cover across the inside top of it, which seems to be working well. It's like a cozy low-temp oven inside!

u/PoniesRBitchin · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Other idea is to fill a sock with rice and microwave.

But really, invest in one of these before shark week strikes again. Practically saved my life in high school before I got on birth control and could have a manageable period.

u/NSFWies · 1 pointr/CannabisExtracts

and you just let it sit? thats good news for me. i started off thinking you needed to heat it to decarb it, but that's not true. as i thought more about the commercial stuff, i thought they didnt heat it past 140F. i tried heating to 120F for 2 hours and it didnt really mix. i'm glad to hear that at a low temperature, over a long period, it does mix.

how did you keep it at 90F for that long? it would be really sweet if we came up with a method like

  • place the shatter and PEG-400 into a silicone BHO container and set that in an electric blanket set on low for 24 hours. that would be a great stealth way to get it to mix. but i know those bho containers are not odor proof. so i guess we'd also have to bag it a few times or put in one mason jar at least to try and capture all the odor.

    man, i really want to get an electric blanket and a temp probe that records. hook it up for a few days and see what temp it sits at.

    edito: this might be all we need

    side thought here, i think you could do the following:

  • take bubblehash and dissolve it into PEG-400
  • put solution through syringe filter to remove the solids

    actually, you could just do that just starting off with regular weed. only thing though is you might want to a rough filtering before the syringe filtering. you wouldn't need to do winterizing. those extra plant waxes wont be optimal, but i think it would just make your final concoction just a little less potent.
u/Waterglint · 1 pointr/BeardedDragons

This is the one I use. You can use any one really, just make sure that it does NOT have the auto shut-off feature. A lot of them do, so you have to be careful when buying. Push button ones usually have auto shut-off and dial or slider switch ones usually don't.

u/Underclock · 1 pointr/roaches

I've had really good results with just a regular heating pad. I keep it under half of the bottom so the other side is more cool, and they can self regulate how warm they want to be

Not the exact model, I'm sure, as we've had it for 15+ years and I just grabbed it from the closet. I have no idea of actual brand or model anymore.

u/Ag-hemiptera · 1 pointr/roaches

You'll need a large plastic bin, egg crates or toilet paper/paper towel rolls for the roaches to cling to, and a heating pad that doesn't have auto shutoff (I buy mine through amazon, if you get one locally be aware that the ones without auto shutoff from this brand have a switch not a button). The heating pad is sort of optional--the roaches won't breed as quickly but they won't die without the heat if you can't find one. You'll also need a screened vent at the top for air exchange.

For the screen, I used hot glue and regular (vinyl?) window screening. If you don't have a hot glue gun a silicone adhesive would probably also work. If your bin is soft plastic, you can cut through the top with a razor knife. However, if your bin is a harder plastic like the sterilite gasket bins, you might want to use a rotary tool to prevent cracking.

If you're concerned about escapes, get a sterilite gasket bin, add a vaseline barrier around the top of the bin to prevent escapes, and use metal screening.

I also recommend a temperature/humidity meter like this one. You can get them really cheap on ebay if you don't mind the temp being in Celsius. You'll find a lot of this style at similar prices from Chinese vendors. If you get another one, double check to see if it includes the lithium battery before you buy it.

As for the roaches, I got my original colony cheap from eBay. You can also find them on Craigslist or the Allpet roach forum sometimes. Or if you're an Ovogram member people will offer small nymphs for free from time to time.

Have you tried D-Mannose? It may not work if it's not a UTI, and I would recommend checking with your doctor before using it, but I used to have awful chronic UTIs I didn't feel like ever went away and it was a miracle. Check out the reviews on Amazon. FYI the powder works better.

u/clandestinita · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

or you can use d-mannose. this stuff is a godsend. you can just take it in pill form and its completely safe.

u/no1particular · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

If you are peeing blood clots, I would suggest getting medical attention immediately. Putting it off will only cost you more, as the worse it gets the more your kidneys will suffer, and kidney intervention is much more expensive than an office visit + antibiotics.

HOWEVER, for future reference, there is a supplement called D-Mannose which is an excellent cure/preventative for UTI's (it is essentially a highly concentrated version of what you find in cranberry juice), and only costs about $15 . Now, being in the healthcare field, I am not what you would consider a 100% Naturalist in terms of medicine, but I have used it myself and have found it to work successfully on beginning-mid stage UTI's. There is evidence-based research that supports its use, and more and more it is looking like a viable alternative to antibiotics.

EDIT: fixed some typos

u/GlobbyDoodle · 1 pointr/AskDocs

I randomly came across your post and thought I'd comment. You might try D-Mannose - which you can buy at Sprouts or Amazon. I had a UTI for months and no antibiotics helped! I desperately started searching on the web and found this stuff. Took it for a few days and my UTI was dramatically better! Now I take it anytime I feel that icky "twinge".

u/focksandhound · 1 pointr/sex

I'm in a long distance relationship. So when we see each other for the few days we tend to get pretty busy. I used to get UTIs every time and one time I got a kidney infection. UNTIL I discovered this stuff called d-mannose ( You can mix it with water and use it to flush out your bladder and urinary tract. Read the comments on the amazon link for instructions on how to use it. Total lifesaver, haven't had a UTI since I started using it. Cranberry pills and juice did nothing for me.

u/ameliamirerye · 1 pointr/sex

Hi! I got reoccurring UTIs for years and then got this D Mannose . I take it any time I feel one coming and it knocks it out almost immediately. It works on UTIs caused by e-coli.

Also drink lots of water. I get dehydrated easily and I think that lends to their start. Try to pee more frequently throughout the day even if you don’t “need” to.

u/riotgrrrl69 · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

If you have UTI issues or sign of infection I would 100% recommend taking D-Mannose , a supplement that takes the bacteria in your bladder/urinary tract and flushes it out the next time you pee. It CHANGED MY LIFE. I’ve had lifelong chronic UTIs (since before I was sexually active) and this is legitimately the only thing I’ve ever taken that has helped (that’s not antibiotics). Just take a couple before bed for a few days and see if it helps! I only take it now if I feel burning when I urinate and it immediately clears it up. Good luck:)

I get the Now Foods capsules, but they really just contain the powder, so either form is fine. You can get it at any Vitamin Shoppe or on Amazon as linked. It seriously changed my life.

There’s some clinical evidence that it can treat UTIs that aren’t responding to ABs and for me the relief was pretty quick. Good luck - you must be miserable!

From wikipedia: "
Mannose, packaged as the nutritional supplement "d-mannose", is a sugar monomer of the aldohexose series of carbohydrates. Mannose is a C-2 epimer of glucose. Mannose is important in human metabolism, especially in the glycosylation of certain proteins."

Click here: D-Mannose

Basically, you can take it in either capsule form, or powder form. While it's technically a sugar, it does wonders in the urinary tract/bladder. If I recall correctly, they think that it prevents the bacteria from grabbing on to the bladder lining, so you're able to finally get rid of it. Something like that.

It worked so much better than cranberry, for me. Apparently d-mannose is the active ingredient in cranberry juice? So, why not just take it straight, instead?

I don't usually link Mercola as I think he's pretty quacky, but all of this sounds right.

u/halfahyperbole · 1 pointr/sex

Can look into D-Mannose supplements, have helped some people with preventing UTIs.

u/gypsywhisperer · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Yep, that's the easiest way to prevent a UTI.

Major props to you for going to the doctor. I went to the clinic because the morning after I had a fever and I had smelly urine, but the school nurse said it was way too soon to be a UTI.

The next day, yeah, it was bad. I went to the ER and they gave me some medicine (I had gotten antibiotics, but they gave me something that relaxed my bladder because I was in so much pain. It made my pee orangered.)

I also have taken these and I don't know if they help, but they're something to look into.

u/monstermash-up · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I have what is called a Bed Buddy. I cannot STRESS how amazing this is! It's a soft, bean filled sack thing that heats up in the microwave. This has gotten me through every awful period I've ever had. You will not regret it. My friends even borrow it when they come over and happen to be on their p-rods.

u/katy_0 · 1 pointr/breastfeeding

I also have oversupply, while I have not had mastitis, I have had plenty of painful plugged ducts UNTIL I started using a microwave heat pack. I got this one: which is a convient shape. I lay it across my chest right above my flanges. You must be very careful not to burn yourself. I heat mine in the microwave along with a mug of water to prevent burning and I always have a towel or folded burp cloth between my skin and the heat pack. It works like magic, at least it has for me.

heres some extra stuff i pack in my bag

  • lots of tape
  • extra belt, underwear and change of shirt
  • surgical scissors to quickly cut the tape off after sessions
  • kneepads / shin guards for spazzy white belts
  • this mesh bag to dump my sweaty gi, gear and clothes in after a session so it can breathe on the way home.
  • tiger balm and some muay thai liniment I use for my shins from cross training muay thai. (also for training through sore muscles, I use this sparingly though)
  • mouth guard
  • gatorade powder
  • towel to wipe down afterwards / lay on my car seat
u/ChocoJesus · 1 pointr/tifu

Liniment Oil, and I've heard this stuff is good

I used icyhot until I took a nap and woke up freezing despite the fact my house was a comfortable 70 degrees... The liniment oil stuff seems to apply better and doesn't leave as much residue

Anyone had any luck with anti inflammation creams?

Saw some on amazon w/ arnica that have fantastic ratings.

like this one:

u/lizthewhiz · 1 pointr/Guitar

I had pain in my wrists when I started out. It's gone now but this is what I did to fix it:

  • took two weeks off playing
  • slept with wrist braces to keep my wrists in a neutral position all night. This maximizes circulation and promotes healing. I still sleep with these.
  • stretch for 5 mins before every practice session
  • applied Penetrex anti-inflammatory cream after a long practice session.
  • practiced in front of a mirror to make sure my posture was good and there were no awkward angles in my wrists
  • switched to classical position and got a nice adjustable foot stool.

    That pretty much cleared it up, but I didn't have any serious pain or anything. Just the early onset of something nasty. Definitely take care of it now before it gets bad.

I hear ya brother! I am 43 and it's a constant battle.

I have found that if I use a mix of these two products...


....I am pretty good with keeping the soreness at bay.

Also, I will wear around the Bear Komplex lite knee sleeves for a few hours after a squat workout or something similar. Helps keep them warm and from stiffening up too bad...

u/LivingWithWhales · 1 pointr/climbing

Its just stubborn inflammation. I was having a similar issue with my left elbow. Anything like front levers or getting warmed up would hurt my elbow. I tried strengthening opposing muscles, I tried ice/heat cycles, I tried massage, stretching, etc.

What finally got it to go away was This

In addition to that, I would recommend taking excess vitamin D for a week or so.

u/LucidSen · 1 pointr/Guitar

I've had good experience with the cream Penetrex for connective tissue issues (tendons and ligaments especially). It might not hurt for you to at least try out this topical cream. I'd rub it in thoroughly at least three times daily for several days and see if it helps.

Disclosure: I don't represent Penetrex. I'm just a happy customer. Good luck!

u/DEEPTHINKER79 · 1 pointr/Guitar

Have you tried Penetrex? It has a ton of great reviews on Amazon.

u/BriBabii · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I bought these to bring along this year! Figured they will definitely not go unused between aches and pains, keeping cool and or keeping food/drinks cold.

u/RedGene · 1 pointr/climbing

Yes, generally I don't just chop off fingers for the heck of it. His thumb got caught between the rope and a draw while he was falling somehow and it seperated at the joint. Which I don't think is all that common but it can happen.

As for the ice pack, prepare to be amazed:

u/persephonenyc · 1 pointr/MultipleSclerosis

I also had heat intolerance as a very early symptom. I loved summer as a kid, and 5 years ago, I thought I was dying. It felt like I was carrying weights on my arms and legs. I thought I was having a stroke, because I wasn't making any sense when I was speaking.
Now that I know this about myself, I am super careful on the subway, and being outside in general. I use these headbands, and honestly, they are awesome. I highly recommend them to anyone who has heat intolerance.

u/waterboysh · 1 pointr/keto

Get one of these (or 2 so you can swap them out and always have 1 cold). For many, cold can provide some extra relief and these are awesome because you don't have to hold it and it's gel, so it's flexible and doesn't get as cold.

I'm 30 and I have had migraines since I was in middle school, so I've had some time to learn my triggers. Heat, bright light, and physical exertion are my biggest ones (I live in Florida... the cruel irony). I do have some food triggers though and I learned by going on keto that carbs/sugar is one of them. I've been on keto 2 years now and it has definitely helped. I have been using Migraine Buddy to track my migraines since March, and according to it I have had 19 migraines. That comes out to one every 1.7 (8 x 4 / 19) weeks on average. I wasn't tracking before keto, but it definitely felt like it was more often than that.

u/shadow247 · 1 pointr/Dirtbikes

Klim makes the ultimate hot weather helmet.

Also conditioning makes a big difference. Make sure you are well hydrated and eat plenty of salty food leading up to the ride.

I've used flexible ice packs on my back with a soft back belt to keep my core temp down. - - Keep these in ice cold water, throw one around your neck, and you will stay cooler longer. I ride in 100 degree temps in the woods here in Texas, and this is what I do. I can ride for 20 minutes or more before I really start to feel the heat. Without it, I can't even last 20 minutes in the heat.

u/SpartanMonkey · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Swamp cooler if you're in a hot dry region. They don't work as well in hot humid weather.
Roof vents.
Lots of open windows, mosquito netting if needed.
Shore power and a 110v air conditioner.
Cool neck wraps

Wearing a Headache Hat right now. I'm going to buy another one next month, and am also entertaining the idea of a third. I know you can buy extra ice squares, but I'm not going to want to take them out and put them back in when I have a migraine.

u/mavalon · 1 pointr/migraine

Thanks for sharing! I just received this ice pack strap thing that didn't work for me very well. I need it to sit right in the crook of my neck below my skull and it didn't do that.
I might try the migraine cap or The Original Headache Hat
Or this one: Elasto-Gel Cranial Cap Not sure why the guy's shirt is off, but I like that it also covers the neck.

u/taswind · 1 pointr/migraine

Dunno which one is best, but there are a bunch of "migraine hats" available... Would let you "wear" your icepacks

u/compulsive_evolution · 1 pointr/migraine

I have The Headache Hat that my boyfriend refers to as, "The Turban of Pain." It's amazing and I don't know how I've lived with migraines for so long without it.

This is also in the realm of drugs, but more of a natural, or a controversial, remedy depending on how you look at it. I sniff tobacco, called "snuff" or what South American cultures call rapé (pronounced, ra-pAY). This is helpful when I get a headache near my eyes or in my sinus areas. It's completely stopped migraines from developing. I can answer some questions if you're curious about it.

I also use a mouth guard at night that I had made at my dentist. It helps protect the nerves in my teeth/face from getting irritated when I grind my teeth. I don't sleep without it.

Rocky Mountain Oil company has a Migraine Support blend that I've found works better than other essential oil companies/MLM's. You can either get the one linked there and dilute 20-30 drops of it with fractionated coconut oil in a glass roller bottle (make sure it has a metal roller - plastic will dilute in the oils), or purchase the roller they sell for $15.

u/rn8650 · 1 pointr/leaves

I just bought a "headache hat" on Amazon that works really well for me. Basically a headband full of tiny ice packs. I just recently realized that cold/ice therapy works really well to curb my headaches. If you don't want to spend the 40$ just a ziplock bag with some ice cubes works pretty well too.

u/Kdrishe · 1 pointr/skyrimvr

After having frequent migraine headaches for a while, I bought a couple of freezer-pack headbands.

One epiphany later, I found they also work great for staying cool in VR (not appearance-wise), but it's a bit more complicated to put the headset on-top of the headband.

Also, I find the added forehead support helps to take weight off of my dainty face.

Here's a link to one I bought.

The stitching is coming apart after almost two years (not bad), but there are a few others for sale.

u/WakaWaka_ · 1 pointr/GearVR

I put a 3x5 Gel Pack in the cover, doesn't solve it but extends my playtime for sure. I keep a couple in the fridge.

u/cjshrader · 1 pointr/GearVR

This is what I did, and it worked fine:

Basically just gotta trim out the corners and make sure not to mess up those pegs. I used my dremel but you could probably use a hacksaw or something with patience.

The overheating...isn't good. But I bought some gel packs and they've worked wonders. I keep them in the refrigerator instead of the freezer because I'm afraid of condensation. My longest session so far has been 30-40 minutes with no overheating.

Check out the reviews, everyone is using these things. There's other mods you can do like adding a case fan but I really didn't want to go through all that.

u/HoustonVR · 1 pointr/GearVR

Which phone are you using with the GearVR? The S7 series manage heat much better and I can easily watch a full length film without overheating. On my Note 4, I use a pair of pony-tail holders to hold one of these to the back of the phone (and run without the dust-cover).

u/Bibbyboy555 · 1 pointr/oculus

For those of you that have GearVR on the S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Note 4 and don't know:

Everyone buys these and they fit perfectly between the front cover and phone and keep it from getting too hot (which is a huge problem after 10 min)

Get something like this.

I've used these both frozen and room temperature. When frozen, I wrap a single paper towel around it in case of condensation. When they're at room temperature, they don't work as well, but still provide a sort of heat sink that wicks away heat from the phone instead of it being insulated.

u/smylmr · 1 pointr/Healthyhooha

hey there, now the problem with antibiotics is that if the UTI recurs, like you said you are going to be put on another set of antibiotics. The risk with this is quite high for your health. I would advice you to try natural remedies. I am going to give you some tips that will help when you have a UTI and to prevent new ones.

  1. Use D-Mannose. D-mannose is a natural sugar that sticks itself to E.coli which is the bacteria responsible for UTIs. It is then easier to flash it out of your system by drinking more water.

  2. The second item is Hibiscus extracts. Hibiscus has some really amazing health benefits and will go a long way to fight infections in your system

  3. Eat Probiotics. These are healthy bacteria that help to fight against the bad bacteria. Yogurts for example

  4. Boost your intake of Vitamin C by eating fruits like oranges

  5. Consider some supplements preferably made from the items I mentioned. A good recommendation is Harmony by Eu Natural ( This is by far the safest and most effective remedy I have come across.

  6. I briefly mentioned but I will like to stress it again. WATER! Drink lots of water not only during UTIs but on normal days as well


    These are some tips from me, I hope you find them useful
u/Bobert25467 · 1 pointr/sounding

Assuming you don't have access to a doctor try drinking cranberry juice. It is acidic and will make it harder for the bacteria to survive. But try to get 100% cranberry juice not the more popular version that has like 27%. It may be bitter but it's more effective. Also I used these pills and they definitely helped. They are better at preventing a UTI than treating it though. Take them like a half hour before sex or sounding and it should prevent or lessen the UTI. Harmony D-Mannose - Urinary Tract UT Cleanse

But going to the doctor is the best because a UTI can spread into you kidneys and become serious if left untreated. But I have found it also depends how you get the UTI. If it's from normal sex instead of sounding you may have more time to try home remedies before it advances into the kidneys. Also sometimes you only get a minor infection and the home remedies will be enough but if you get a fever it's advanced and you should get antibiotics.

u/sfbnni · 1 pointr/askwomenadvice

This is the one I used, it’s exp but worth it. Make sure to drink tons of water consistently but after you take it wait about an hour before you drink more so it won’t be diluted.

If you end up ordering from amazon, to help w the pain take AZO and just keep drinking water. Cranberry juice does nothing.

EDIT: ALSO pee always after sex and wipe front to back

I get vasospasms, and unfortunately heat is the only thing I've found that helps. I've heard some people can use meds, but my BP runs borderline low, so they won't give them to me.

This bad boy right here

I'll paint you the full picture. I setup everything beforehand so when i get back inside from lighting up im ready to go. I have a hot foot bath next to my bed, and i lay back on one of these heating pads, and use one of those massagers that kind of look like a dildo but whatever that i use. Right next to me are my munchies of choice for the evening (last night was Trader Joe's Mac and Cheese and Hot Cocoa flavored cereal). And add to this whatever nutty music i'm listening to with my Audiotechnica headphones. Bliss, my friend.

u/Kells1357 · 1 pointr/Endo

My absolute favorite is this oversized heating pad. It doesn’t get too hot to burn but hot enough to bring down the pain, and turns off after awhile. Full disclosure, I fall asleep with it on the highest setting all the time and have never gotten burned.

Pure Enrichment PureRelief XL Heating Pad for Back Pain and Cramps - Fast-Heating, Ultra-Soft Heat Therapy with 6 Temperature Settings and Auto Shut-Off Feature - 12" x 24" (Charcoal Gray)

Although, this is another one of my favorite options. For me, the heat from water is much more therapeutic (see my massive water bill for the several hot showers a day I take haha). But this is like an old fashioned rubber hot water bottle. A lot of them come with cute covers on them. You pour hot water in it and it literally lasts the night.

Hot Water Bottle with Knit Cover, UBEGOOD Rubber Transparent Hot Water Bag, Good for Pain Relief (2 Liters, Blue/Gray)

Finally, I personally don’t like this because it is too tight on my belly, but some of my other friends with endo swear by using this at work. It might be more discrete in the workplace.

Have her pull it out ASAP. She should drink lots of water so she urinates a lot & flushes out the area. If she can get some of this stuff (any brand, you can find @ health food stores), it's inexpensive & very good for preventing UTIs.

If it was inside her for a matter of 12 hours or so, she is probably fine as long as she gets it out soon.

Well smoke is bad for your lungs lol. You could eat edibles I guess tho.

I love this stuff personally and thai oil. I got a bulk 5 pack of this and some of this stuff too
