Dear MendMeShop,

I sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation and knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee. Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide radiant heat. I was happy to discover your Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Headache Attributed To Substance Use

Substance use can lead to headaches.

A headache attributed to a substance use / overuse is usually diagnosed only when the headache resolves or dramatically reduces in pain after the user no longer exposes themselves to the substance. Migraine sufferers (migraineurs) are known to be extra sensitive to ingested substances such as alcohol, chemicals medication and foods; adverse drug reactions are not uncommon and this is fairly well documented. It should be noted however, that the exposure to a substance and an ensuing headache are often merely coincidental. Also, some disorders may be predisposed to a headache from specific substance ingestion, wherein neither the disorder nor the substance would alone produce a headache.

Carbon Monoxide Induced Headache

This headache has also been known as the "workers warehouse headache". Exposure to carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous and life threating; severity of headaches from carbon monoxide typically increase with the amount of exposure to this dangerous gas. Headache usually develops within 12 hours of exposure, and will resolve itself within 3 days after the sufferer is no longer exposed. At its most severe, nausea and blurred vision will be apparent alongside the extremely painful headache. Beyond this degree of severity, lack of coherency and perhaps sleepiness will signal failing consciousness.

Delayed Alcohol-induced Headache

This headache has also been known as the "hangover headache" and is probably the most common headache known today. This headache is typically bilateral (both sides of head), pulsating and is aggravated by physical exercise. The headache will develop when blood alcohol level declines or is reduced to zero, and is gone within 3 days. For migraine sufferers, it is common for a delayed alcohol-induced headache to be triggered by a very modest amount of alcohol, compared with a non-migraineur who will get the headache only after an intoxicating amount of alcohol.

Success Stories

Headache induced by Food Components and Additives

Some food ingrediets such as aspartame have been claimed to induce headaches, but nothing has been proven or sufficiently validate to show as much. The commonest food induced headache is from monosodium glutamate (MSG), and typically develops within 1 hours of MSG ingestion. The MSG induced headache is usually dull or burning but may be pulsating in migraine sufferers. It is also linked with pressure in the chest and or face, burning sensations in the chest, neck and/or shoulders, flushing redness in the face and stomach ache.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012. I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him). I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot. My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day. My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit). So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan. I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.
