It is vitally important to find products that help with the symptoms of chronic illnesses. I've dealt with migraines for over 20 years along with my Dermatomyositis and often have a type of headache called Aseptic Meningitis as a side effect to my IVIG treatments. My husband gave me the ICEKAP Headache and Migraine Therapy cap for an early Mother's Day present today, and it was not one moment too soon, as a migraine headache hit within hours of opening the package and freezing it (the instructions say that best results will be experiences if it has been frozen for 24 hours, but I didn't have that luxury this time). I tested it out and can report that the cap worked just as expected! I usually request Scott to give me a vigorous head rub and then squeeze my head as hard as he can, followed by packing my head with ice packs. Tonight, I put on the ICEKAP and the pressure and coldness immediately eased the pain. Thirty minutes later, I removed it, as directed, and even though initially I thought the headache was coming back, it did not! After a few minutes I noticed that it was totally gone!
I plan to take it to my next IVIG treatment to see if it helps with the symptoms during my infusion!
If you have read The Marvelous Transformation: Living Well with Autoimmune Disease you have seen the list of products and services I have found and love. The ICEKAP definitely deserves to be in that list in future printings! You can find out more on their Facebook page or their website: http://www.icekap.ca/
