    I disagree about not allowing pets in your room at night. I think pets are members of your family. Having them nearby when you sleep can relax you and help you feel safer. Get them more than one bed and put them throughout the house, so they have options. And when it's cooler, consider a heated bed or one which reflects their body heat. Put that in a warm enough spot, and that will be the go-to bed!

    If you keep the same schedule each day, it is very unlikely they will disturb your sleep unless they really need something. And if that's food, perhaps you can leave a little out before you go to sleep. - 6/27/2016 8:30:15 AM
  • PILLOWCURE
    My neck has taken a big turn in the past some weeks and sleeping is the most unhappy part of my day. The pain is quite bearable during the day, but becomes intolerable when I lie down and wakes me up a number of times during the night. I have been sleeping on a pillow and though the pain is not as bad as if I sleep on another pillow it is still terrible! The pillow I have is the kind with the ridge which is supposed to support the neck, but I have never been capable to get relaxed about it. Does anybody know of any other best pillows for neck pain?

    I use a sound machine to go to sleep and stay asleep. The best setting that has been proven for good sleep is the RAIN setting. (Not ocean kept me up all night).

  • I had TKR and of course had a difficult time finding a comfortable position w/o pain.
    I wish I had read your article before. I am going to look into your suggestions. - 5/22/2013 12:50:20 PM
  • I normally do not endorse products on sparkpeople but I would wake up every morning with my neck pain exasperated until I bought a "my pillow". I bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon and still thought the price was a little steep. After a month I am so glad I purchased it. I go to sleep with more neck pain then when I wake up. It actually gets better at night. - 5/22/2013 10:30:59 AM
