My had a body pillow that was packed away in storage boxes from her move to my house that we found last night. I used it and it worked very well. Thanks for all the suggestions.

And you could make your own....just go to a craft store or someplace like a JoAnn ETC that sells foam. You can get different thicknesses and custom make your own, then just cover it with a pillowcase or something like that.

Blessed be.

Medical supply stores have pillows made exclusively for that purpose. They are made of covered foam, I believe, and are made in a triangular shape. Don't know what they cost, but they are what a PT uses when they work on you.

Have you thought of using a body pillow for sleeping? You can adjust it to use with your knees and hips. I have seen them at Costco and they don't cost a lot.

Good luck!!

I have been a "side sleeper" all my life, but now with rheumatoid, I wake up with my hips hurting. I bought a wedge to put under my knees when sleeping on my back to keep my back from hurting, but the foam is too soft and after continued use, it squishes down too much and I still wake up with my back hurting. I have done some more research on the web for knee pillows, but I am hesitant to order something as it is becoming an expensive "experiment." Does anyone have something that works well and could direct me to where I could obtain it?
Thank you for any help you can give.
