As you may have noticed I LOVE sleeping, dreaming and if possible Lucid Dreaming. I detest NOT being able to sleep, waking up and not being able to go back to sleep and anything that keeps me from being able to sleep. My husband has some disk problems and has been using magnets for his back for some time now and he even takes them to bed with him. I have a shoulder problem from an auto injury years ago that causes me pain if I happen to roll over on that particular shoulder. I had tried pills, both pain pills and muscle relaxers a few times but did not like taking them too often. I will do anything to keep from having to have surgery done.
One night in the middle of the night I did an awful thing. I stole my husbands magnets while he lay sleeping and put it on my shoulder and in about fifteen minutes I was almost pain free and was able to go back to my much welcomed sleep. I don't know if it was the magnets, or if it is just all in my mind but I believe it was the magnets and now I have my own that I sleep with every night. I even wear magnets in the day time to keep my upper back from hurting when I spend too much time at the computer. I can tell if I am not wearing them at the computer because when my back starts to hurt I know I have forgotten to put them on. And NO, refrigerator magnets do NOT work.
