I use an electric blanket, even in summer. Heat helps with the pain.
I like weight across my legs but too anxious at times. I am going to tell you something and please don’t think I am making light of your question. My dog has social anxiety disorder. One of her vets recommended a weighted blanket. She has a bad leg as result of hip surgery. When her leg hurts she holds leg straight up when sleeping. I started putting blanket on her leg at night. After about week and half her leg would be down. I couldn’t believe it. I had been massaging her leg several times a night during flares. I quit putting it on her first summer, too hot. Crying, leg back up. Turned air down, blanket back on nights leg was hurting, sleeping all night. It has been almost 4 years. It did not help her anxiety. I am sorry I wrote you a book. I look forward to hearing if a weighted blanket helps you.
I have wanted to try one to see if it helps. I actually got given a heated blanket and used it on top of me at night, i actually found that it was heavier than a typical throw over type blanket so even if i had it turned off i found i slept better. I'm not sure if a weighted blanket would be too heavy for me but would love to try one! 😃
I lay big pillow all around over my blanket then another blanket on top but heating pad between my knees helps the most.
Like MarylwendHansen, I had allodynia before I realized it was fibro. Clothes hurt; ordinary sheets hurt; simple touch like holding hands hurt. Sorry, but nothing weighted for me. If you think something weighted might work for you, go for it...but check the return policy first.
