VIM & VIGRVIM & VIGR was so kind as to send me a pair of their compression socks to review! I was diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope more than a decade ago and one of our current theories is POTS, so I’m painfully familiar with dysautonomia. Pair that with my chronic pain and you have the basis for quite a love affair with all things compression! When I first spotted VIM & VIGR‘s compression socks, stockings, and other essentials, I added them to my mental wish list instantly. I mean, latex-free compression options with designs as cute as lemons? Count me in! When I eventually give these a try, I’ll report back but, for now, my expectations are definitely high.
CEFALY Migraine DeviceOver the years, I’ve amassed quite the collection of ways to cope with my chronic intractable migraines. I’ve seen this nifty device all over TikTok and other social media platforms lately and am so intrigued! The more I learn about Cefaly, the more determined I am to give it a try ASAP.
Neo-Walk Walking StickI’m still trying to incorporate my mobility aids into everyday life–it’s easier said than done to have friends and family support such a blatant change! From the moment I first spotted Neo-Walk walking sticks, I knew I would be adding it to this list. I mean, who can turn down glitter? I think the Gatsby design (shown above) is my number-one pick, but I love others, like their Funfetti, Bubblegum Blush, Emerald City, and Lilibet styles.
Allay Light Therapy LampI first stumbled across this migraine tool through Cove and it’s been more or less on my radar ever since. I’ve had some luck with green color therapy glasses for migraines, so I’ve got pretty high hopes for the Allay light therapy lamp!
Embr WaveEmbr Labs has sponsored a few episodes of Morbid: A True Crime Podcast (which I can’t recommend enough for my fellow true crime aficionados—and be sure to preorder Alaina’s debut novel!) and the Embr Wave definitely caught my eye. My symptoms include heat intolerance and general temperature dysregulation so the thought of having such innovative control most definitely catches my eye.
90-Count Liquid IVLiquid IV is already one of my favorite things (pretty much ever) and I definitely hope to invest in one of these bulk packs! Electrolytes help so much with my dysautonomia symptoms and Liquid IV is my personal favorite source. I try to keep plenty on hand and this would make that easier than ever!
Grace & Able Compression GlovesGrace & Able was so kind as to offer me an arthritis care kit to review! I’m pretty happy with the compression gloves I have already but I’ve heard so many good things about Grace & Able! I’d definitely like to give this brand a try, with either their standard compression gloves (can we discuss that gorgeous ballet pink?) or the arthritis care kit (or both!).
DOSEY Pill Planners & OrganizersWhen I first spotted DOSEY’s pill organizer products, I sort of shrugged it off. I love my current pill case, so why would I need a different one. But the more I’ve seen of their pill purses, wellness wallets, and other stylish items, the more I fell absolutely in love. My dream setup is a matching pink wellness wallet and pill purse with their matching flask—the flask alone is such a brilliant idea!
Upright GO Posture TrainerSimply put, my posture is terrible. Between neurodivergence, hypermobility, and life in general, I’m sure it has some impact on the pain I’d deal with already. I have a more conventional posture corrector already but rarely use it as it irritates my skin. Something like the Upright Go strapless device seems like an ideal solution!
Pink Stork MistI’ve used and loved Pink Stork’s nausea sweets for motion sickness and nausea so I have no doubt that their topical magnesium spray will be equally wonderful! I’m planning to try this one for pain, nausea, and everything in between. I love that their brand is woman-owned, too!
Pain Relief Eye MaskAs-is, eye masks are an absolute lifesaver (I love the conventional style as well as these warming eye masks from Miss A) when it comes to migraines and other flares. The “ergoBeads” in this particular eye mask have certainly piqued my interest!
Hug Sleep PodMy weighted blanket is one of the single best things I’ve ever owned. The Hug Sleep Pod looks like such a fantastic alternative for nights when my pain sensitivity might be too much for extra weight!
HomeTop Hot Water BottlesStorytime! Back in Bath, I purchased a wonderful hot water bottle. In addition to the classic rubbery bottle, it came with an adorable “sweater” covered in paw prints for a cover. While the bottle itself followed me to the States, that sweater got lost along the way. I haven’t found an exact replacement but I’m loving these options from HomeTop. Their 2.25 liter model has such a unique design, and the classic 2-liter hot water bottle is a great piece to match. Plus, both covers look like they’d be such a pleasing texture—and I’m never one to turn down polka dots!
Vive Foot RockerPlantar fasciitis is one of my least severe conditions but, when it flares up, it goes far beyond being just a nuisance. Between that and my chronically tight hamstrings, the Vive foot rocker looks like an incredible little product!
Medline RollatorAfter a stint in the hospital last year, I ordered my grandfather a rollator much like this one to help him through recovery. As my own symptoms worsen, it’s an investment I may be making myself sooner than I would have thought! This light blue color brings a smile to my face, which is always a bonus when it comes to medical equipment.
I was super intrigued when I came across an ad for CalmiGo recently. The lavender scent is what first got my attention. Between the normal anxieties that come with neurodivergence to the horrible nightmares of PTSD, concentrating on this calming scent sounds absolutely lovely. The more that I researched, though, the peppermint option seemed just as appealing. It would be invigorating during a bout of fatigue and such a relief from migraine-adled nausea!
