    On your chest? I use gel packs on my chest but was wondering if it is okay to use the thermocares for the 12 hour period on your chest. I am over cautious about everything with this dd, I do not know if having heat on for 12 hours would or ccould affect the heart.

    I know this is a dumb ?? but is not dumb to me.

    they work so well on muscle pain. But honestly I don't know if there would be an issue with using it on your chest. I understand your concern, I'm like that too, second guessing every medication or new therapy.

    I have two thoughts, first check the insert from the box and see if there are any caution statements, or go to their website.

    Second and probably the best choice is to call your pharmacist or Drs office and ask.

    Let us know the answer.
    Good luck
    Sincerely
