Weighted Blankets

Weighted Blankets

I wonder if any of you lovely people have ever tried a weighted blanket, ive heard its very good for fibromyalgia and sleeping

I have been using a weighted blanket for about 6 months. I'm not sure that it helps with any of my symptoms, but it does give you a grounded feeling when in bed. It is so heavy though, that it is very difficult to move and even turn over in bed. I have considered removing it but ultimately decide not to because it does add something to the bed experience.... I'm just not sure what that is, or how to quantify it.
