The chiropractor sorted out Hulky's neck. He used some kind of electric pulse thing to get the muscle to spasm (more) and then they calmed down. I asked about the buckwheat pillow and he just said that any flatter pillow is optimal. He sells pillows shown below at the office which look really comfortable, but a pillow isn't really necessary if you sleep on your back. I don't use one. Hulky is going to switch to his ancient, flat, feather pillow. I want to find him a new one though because you're supposed to replace them periodically (because EW), but this one is probably 15+ yrs old. So is mine, for that matter.
I am sure most of my joint pain is either weakness or inflammation. Some days, I just step funny and my knee screams. If I eat something I know is cooked w/ industrial oils, hands and knees hurt the next day. For Hulky, I don't know. Cutting out bad oils (he gets lunch out a lot while at class) would probably be a good first step, but I don't think he's inclined to do it.
I am treating myself today to a little egg nog, grilled cheese sandwich (on sourdough bread), and a gluten-free pizza (Pamela's bread mix).
