Joint Pain Hack

by Jerome Princy (2020-02-20)

I remember sitting on the Joint Pain Hack Review couch and just crying because I couldn't sleep as well during the day as I could at night and I was soo miserable - but I didn't feel like I had a choice to not work nights. One thing I did to help me sleep better were valerian root, blacked-out room, a fan and earplugs to reduce noise, and thought-dismissing, and relaxing stretching. Valerian root - I would take the full dose allowable on the bottle one hour before bed. It smells bad but works good. I tried melatonin but it didn't seem to help me. I would black out the room as much as possible with curtains and use an air conditioner to make sure I was comfortable. A fan and earplugs would block out noise. One thing that I would try now if I were working night shifts, or if I had any issues with sleeping is those nasal strips that the football players wear. I hadn't come across this idea when I was working night shifts, but a book I read recently says that opening up the nasal passages can cause a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. It's surely worth a try. Fibromyalgia (FM) is a common, yet not well understood disorder that affects thousands of Canadians. The word fibromyalgia comes from the Latin term for fibrous tissue (fibro) and the Greek term for muscle (myo) and pain (algia). It is marked by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points on specific areas of the body. The challenges with FM are that the symptoms are not clearly visible, and it cannot be diagnosed by a particular blood test or marker. As such, FM is still associated with a stigma among both medical professionals and the public. For those with FM, not being understood can be just as painful as the symptoms of the disease.
