    I just want our newbies to know about the relief many of us get from heated mattress pads. I heard about them on this board and by far it has helped me the most along with the elavil. I got mine from penneys on line. Treat yourselves to one you will love it!

    Do you sleep on the heated pad all year round? I have a heated waterbed which is great in winter,but like now,when it gets hot...I have to turn it off cuz I sweat too much. Just wondering if you sllep on the heated pad in summer and if so don't it make you sweat? Thanks:eek:)

    I am the one who started with the heated mattress pad! Yes, I use mine year round. I turn the a/c down at night to about 67 degrees, its that important for the pain.

    I do admire you for sleeping on a waterbed, I can't even lay on one, not to mention I could not get off of it.

    I use a extra firm posturepedic mattress, then a featherbed on top of that, and the heated mattress pad on top of it.

    Then I have a lightweight down comforter for cover, year round. Its pure heavenly, like a cocoon, all soft and light.

    Shalom, Shirl
