Ice Ice Baby

Yo, VIP, let's kick it! Ice Ice BabyIce Ice Baby. Now that I have that utterly ridiculous song stuck in your head let me get down to the meat of my post. As previously mentioned I have cape pain. This pain is caused by nerve pain. Tonight, the pain is insane in my chest. I have tried one remedy after another, and only one remedy has not failed! ICE! Yes, while I was carefully implanting that song into your brain I was sitting here covered in ice. Sometimes I leave an ice pack on for a few minutes, and other times for 20 minutes. I use a homemade reusable ice pack, so I never run out of ice. If you are suffering from nerve pain I would suggest giving ice a try, and see if it may ease your pain. Also, remember what works for one person may not work for others. Comment below if you have tried ice, and share some tips on how you have relieved nerve pain. 

Homemade Ice Pack (I use a foodsaver to make mine)

Foodsaver ice pack cut to size
1:2 ratio of water to rubbing alcohol (If you use one cup water use two cups of rubbing alcohol)
Food coloring, optional and only a couple of drops 

Remove as much as possible by using the foodsaver. Seal and you are done. 

I have had the same ice packs for nearly two years, and they are not only a money saver, but a lifesaver!
