Sleeping On Pillows

Sleeping On Pillows

Does anyone else have problems sleeping on pillows? I have to use very flat pillows..because at the base of my skull ..I can not have any pressure on it...,I have lots of friends with Fibro who have the same problem.,.if you have it as well.,.what do you think it is? If I lay on my back ,on a pillow.,.and my head is on the pillow, for a extended period.,.it hurts a lot.,.have to lay on my side..and not have any pressure there.

Yes, the trick is to keep your head and spine aligned straight. I put a flat pillow under my upper back/shoulders and another pillow above that under my head. This keeps my spine aligned and less neck pain in the morning.

I have this issue also. If I sleep on my back I often wake with pain in my arms from the elbow down into my fingers and I just feel odd in general. Have to sleep on my sides

I have a medium firm pillow under my flat pillow on top this combo is what is the most comfortable for me after years of experimenting!!
