@Layla Yes, I use the heating pad at night and while on the couch during the day along the side of my hip and thigh. While resting, if I keep the warmth on, my thigh doesn't really hurt but unfortunately it reminds me it's there the minute I stand up. I do find getting out, even for a stop at the grocery store using the mobility scooter helps my mental health. I'm a real foodie so grocery stores are fun for me, lol. I'm surprised I've never been accused of loitering I won't be going anywhere for a few more days now. We are about to get hit with another nasty snow & ice storm that is predicted to dump another foot on us. This winter feels never ending!
