My latest helpers:

Daily meds: lyrica, celebrex (AM & PM) then hydrocodone & tizanidine (PRN, up to 2x/day), lidocaine patches (up to 3 at a time, on the areas that are the worst at any given moment)

PT/Exercise: Desensitization therapy, light exercise (water aerobics, light yoga, walking the dogs, even household chores) but also listening to my body and cutting myself slack when needed

Other: Heating pads, heated blankets (I keep both at home and at work, as well as upstairs and downstairs in my house), hot baths, fuzzy socks, soft clothing and/or shorts, distraction therapy (family, friends, solitaire/yahtzee on my phone, social media, reading, tv, etc).

To the person who said loose shirts - check out the Ava & Viv section at Target - in the plus size area. even if you're not plus sized they are really loose through the stomach and a 0x works well even if you're a size 8 or something. And they're $8 each and super soft and lightweight.
