Has Anyone Tried A Weighted Blanket?

Has Anyone Tried A Weighted Blanket?

Hi, I bought myself a weighted blanket, and it's awesome!!!!
The weight is evenly distributed - mine has tiny glass beads inside. Sewn into square grids. I've had a better sleep every night so far. Quite expensive (90-120) but I absolutely feel more rested and haven't been waking up so much. I've been able to sleep without taking any sleep meds and feel clearer headed in the morning. I'm not saying I still haven't had a few wakeful times, but the sleep I have had is deeper,… read more

@A MyFibroTeam Member Which weight did you get? I thought it was the 15 lb. I think mine is heavy enough for me for now, and I plan to lose more weight before summer.
I read that the weight of the blanket becomes personal preference as well, some like more or less weight, despite the recommendations.
It's a little difficult at first settling in, partly because I have 2 little dogs & they would be in my legs area while I'm trying to get comfortable, Lol... they are spoiled little girls.πŸ˜‰
@A MyFibroTeam Member I also waited a long time to afford my blanket, so I researched about them quite a bit first. 😘
The pic is us in our blankets! πŸ€—

@A MyFibroTeam Member I just ordered a weighted blanket & minky duvet for it! I'm excited!
It should arrive Saturday, 😁yay! I hope it works for me, I've been awake until 4 or 5 AM most nights lately, ugh! I got the 48" x 72" size because my husband doesn't want it on his side of the bed. I'm so glad you mentioned it here, even though I've wanted to try one, but you verified that it helps. Thank you! πŸ˜™β€

@A MyFibroTeam Member that's really good to hear.

It is very frustrating that doctors don't want to or just won't share this type of information, (weighted blankets) They seem so dismissive here especially, of anything that is not a medicine!
We only discover helpful items and treatments by our own constantly searching and a thankfully so many sharing information here.
I've had my blanket a few weeks now, and I definitely feel I sleep deeper overall.
