Hope you’re having a great day so far! As you may know, I suffer from Endometriosis. I’ve had it for years and years and over those years I’ve managed to get pain relief down to a science. Living with Endometriosis is HARD, there is no if-and-or-but about it. These soothing Endometriosis Must-Haves are the things that help to get me through the pain.
Endometriosis for me was life-altering. I’m no longer able to have a job outside of the house (thank goodness for blogging) and I sometimes have to take it easy when I want to keep going. My number one tip is rest, if you’re suffering – don’t push yourself. You can still get a lot accomplished if you take everything in baby steps. But, in the meantime – here are some items that I find very soothing!
Soothing Endometriosis Must-Haves:
- Sunbeam Microplush King Size Heating Pad with LED Controller – YOU GUYS. This heating pad is everything. It’s extra large so it can cover your entire torso when you’re in pain. It’s also great when wrapped around the back. Plus, it’s microplush so it’s soft and cozy – much better than original heat pads.
- Carex Bed Buddy Hot/Cold Pack – This little guy is amazing for the lower abdominal pain that is associated with Endometriosis. It’s narrow so it can easily wrap and cover the area completely. You can also cool it in the fridge!
- Dr Teals Lavender Epsom Salt – Soothe and Sleep – The best way to relax my muscles is by taking a long soak in a hot bath. I love using these lavender epsom salts to help me unwind, relax, and prep for a good night’s sleep.
- Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution, Rosemary and Mint – This Rosemary and Mint bath soak is perfect for sore muscles, and it’s great to use when you’re having a bad pain day.
- PanAway Young Living Essential Oil 5ml (Deep Relief is also great) – Both of these essential oils are great to combat pain. In my opinion, PanAway is stronger – so that’s the one I’ll always reach for first, but Deep Relief is amazing too – especially if you’ve had surgery and have hot flashes.
- Thermacare Menstrual HeatWraps – On the go? No problem, these are easy to travel with and wear while you’re out and about. They’ve gotten me through a few really important work occasions in the past because they deliver that same soothing relief that a heating pad does.
- Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow, Ivory – I know what you’re thinking. A Snoogle? YES. Getting enough rest is extremely important, and some nights it’s just almost impossible for me to get comfortable, and on those nights – I break out the Snoogle. This body pillow conforms to the shape of your body, and offers relief and comfort on those nights when you’re up in pain and just want to go to sleep.
- 2000lbs Exercise Stability Ball – These exercise balls are great for stretching at home. Awhile back I was attending physical therapy twice a week and my therapist was showing me some great ways to use this ball to stretch out the pain. It’s been amazing to be able to take those skills home and apply them when I’m not able to make it in to therapy.
- Popular Basics Women’s Cotton Yoga Pants – If you haven’t discovered that yoga pants and Endometriosis go hand-in-hand, now is the time! I know you might not want to wear yoga pants 24-7, but on your high pain days, try them. The fold-over band yoga pants are my favorite because they offer more support and pressure to your abdomen. And for me, the pressure feels great when I’m in pain. These are super affordable, soft, and come in a variety of sizes and colors!
- VicTsing 300ml Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser – I know we talked about essential oils for pain earlier, but I also strongly believe in using them to help relax the mind and body, too. My favorite ways to diffuse oils is in one of these diffusers. My favorite combinations are Lavender & Eucalyptus, and Cedarwood and Lavender.
