UPDATE 1/23/12: My affiliate link and promotion code no longer seem to be working. I do still highly recommend these wraps and use mine constantly! You can pick them up at Amazon.com for $15-16 (same as the main Medi-Temp website) and if you have Amazon Prime OR something else to put in your order to get the free shipping with $25 minimum offer, you can get free shipping. :)
I've just been invited to join the Medi-Temp affiliate program as one of their first migraine affiliates. YEA! They're offering free shipping on all Medi-Temp orders of more than $20 by using my code DCKELLI when you check out.
You all know how much I love their products, especially the head wrap. The price is so inexpensive for this wrap ($15.95) that you won't quite make the $20... but you can make another small purchase of the Multi-Compress ($5.95) and be at $21.90 OR you can get the Micro-Pillow I also love ($19.99) and be well over the $20 requirement. It's a really nice sized compress (not quite the size of a sheet of paper), and it stays cold for a long time.
You should also know that in Medi-Temp's Terms and Conditions, they offer an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee. So, there is no risk to you to try the product.
I use my head wrap any time I have a headache and can't lay down. It wraps and closes with velco and stays put... so you can sit upright, walk around, do your normal activities, etc. I have even been seen driving with mine on when I have to go somewhere and have a migraine. The cold helps me with both the migraine pain and with the motion sickness that also comes with the migraine for me.
I like to freeze my wrap... but here's a little tip I've found helpful over the years. If it's frozen and you put it on the normal way... blue side out... it can almost be too cold on your skin. So, I start out with the blue side in... it gives just a little more barrier between the frozen insert and your skin. Then when it's no longer frozen, I'll flip it and get all the rest of the cold with the blue side out. You can also use it blue side out and just put a paper towel in between your forehead and the pad... but for me, it's just easier to flip it and then flip it again.
I know I seem like I'm plugging these products a lot this month... but they truly have been a godsend for me over the years, so if they might help you, I really want to encourage you to try them.
Best, Kelli :)
