Has Anyone Tried A Weighted Blanket Either For MS Or For Another Condition?

Has Anyone Tried A Weighted Blanket Either For MS Or For Another Condition?

Weighted blankets are exactly what they sound like — they're heavy blankets (typically 15 pounds or more) filled with a material such as plastic pellets. The theory is that the deep pressure you feel from being under all of that weight has a calming effect.

SaraLouiseGVanG, I didn't know there were "fake" weighed blankets, and "real" ones? :) I got mine for around 80 usd, it's a weighed cooling blanket, I've had it for a year and I'm very happy with it!

Weighted Blanket

Weighted Blanket

Has anyone used a weighted blanket? I went to the dentist last week and i had xrays. When they put that heavy lead “blanket” on my torso I felt very calm. So I’m considering a blanket but wanted to get some of your thoughts. Thanks!

I've made many for people with autism and migraines and even Parkinson's. I love the way they feel. I think a 12 pound blanket is a very nice weight. Of course everyone is different.
