Best Heating Pad

I’ve had half a dozen heating pads over the years and this new one is by far the best one had yet. I just wanted to share with you guys as I use this on a daily basis. I purchased this on Amazon for $60. It was the most I’ve ever spent on a heating pad but well worth it in my opinion. I’ve included a photo from Amazon, it is made by Bodymed.

      Does anyone  know should I take my probiotic pill while I'm on antibiotic like same day or wait till I'm off antibiotics? Do I take the probiotic everyday while on the antibiotics hopefully i'm wording this right. Does anyone e else get the blood mucous and blood even when not infective? Please someone answer as i'm having the bloody mucous and blood now , I already had my antibiotic on hand in case pain started back up which it has the last 3 days and I started the antibiotic today.  Feeling scared from all the horror stories of hemorrhaging  and such now i'm frighten something horrible . Does anyone else get this blood stuff with a flare and without a flare?

      I’m sorry to hear that ur having a flare. I don’t get to much blood when I’m having a flare, mostly just streaks of blood. I’ve had a bit more blood and mucous when it’s diverticulitis, but generally the antibiotics knock it out.

      My doctor said I could take the probiotics 4 hours after taking antibiotics, but you should check with ur doctor to be sure. 

      You might want to create a post as i’m Not sure if people will see it here in this thread.

      The moist heat makes the pain a little bit more bearable, it’s big enough to cover my entire abdominal area. My pain is lower right ab, diverticula disease; upper right ab, gallbladder; lower right ab, diverticula disease; central ab, unknown at this point.

      So you never had the diverticulitis?  You mean the posts that I have sent today the group may not be able to see?

      No I’ve had 4 diverticulitis attacks over 25 years. But the disease itself can cause lots of other problems and symptoms.

      The question you asked here only shows up here on this thread, so only people who look at this topic on heating pads will see your post. I’m saying if you want more response post your question as a new post. Hope that makes sense.
