There are moments in my life where I suddenly suffer from pain in my feet and legs. It comes and goes, but when it’s there, it’s all I can think about. Perhaps it’s the fact that I’ve done too much web diagnosing that I fear what the doctor might say, so I haven’t got it looked at. That said, at some point I came across Fibromyalgia and was fascinated by the fact that it’s one of the most common chronic pain conditions in the world and many don’t even know they have it. What’s even more interesting is the fact that there’s no specific cure, yet many mentioned the use of a weighted blanket and how it can possibly help to alleviate the symptoms. And I thought, well I may as well try one out. Perhaps it will relieve the pain in my feet and legs. And I’m glad that I did. I haven’t slept this well in ages.
I spent days looking for the perfect weighted blanket (spoiler – it’s this blanket ). The bloody things are expensive. That was until I came across the company kudd.ly™ , with reviews raving about the quality and softness of their weighted blanket. It had the perfect weight so I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed laying under it, and it was a solid price. They even offer free shipping. How could I say no?
My initial thought after opening the parcel was how right the reviews were. The blanket’s soft, so soft that I found myself constantly petting it whenever I used it on my couch while watching TV or reading.
Many fibro-warriors mentioned how when we were young, we’d sleep under layers of blankets to keep us warm and the pressure of those layers comforted us while we drifted off to sleep. This was because the pressure releases a feel-good hormone that promotes peace and well-being.
I am happy to say that my kudd.ly™ Weighted Blanket gave me that same sort of feeling at night, and ever since, I’ve been able to sleep soundlessly through the night. Very rarely, now, do I wake up with that pain in my legs and feet.
They say it can take a few weeks to feel the benefits of a weighted blanket, but after a couple of nights under my Kuddly, I now wake up refreshed in the morning.
I think everyone should give a weighted blanket a try, even Firbo-warrior, Sue Ingebretson says so: “sometimes we need to try something for ourselves.” And I think she’s right, especially when most companies give customers a 30 day night’s trial. Kuddly does. In fact, if you don’t feel as if your Kuddly is helping alleviate your symptoms, then you can easily return it for a full refund .
