Ill give you the short story. I've had stomach ache for approximately 15 years (I'm 19) constantly. All day, every day. I started using a hot water bottle about 4 years ago at night. I'd use it not every night but whenever it was hurting bad enough. It then went up to using it every night, then evenings too, then as soon as I got home from school/college. During my second year at college my stomach aches got so much worse that I started using it all day and all night, every day and every night. I took it to college with me and would sit in my ALevel lecture with it wedged under my top and half down my pants. Due to the pain being so bad, i haven't been able to get a job as I can't stand up for too long. Basically, I can't do much so I stay at home all the time sitting down in a 'relaxed' position with my hot water bottle. Due to the constant use I have now got really bad burns all over my stomach. I can't not use it as it is the only thing that eases pain. I need some help and advice as to what alternatives I can use. It is the heat that helps but I just want the pain to go. This is what my stomach looks like on a good day.
