I don't sleep, I pass out so I'm good.

And the pics in TFA have a creepy Bill Cosby thing going on.

1. Sleeping at home is inefficient. Sleep at work, where you'll be getting paid for the time.

Sleeping on my side usually gives me a sore collar bone.

The woman pictured sleeping on her stomach can sleep on my stomach any time she wants.

Part of me wonders (because Drew) if this is just an ad for those mattresses that conform to your body and shiat.

The other part thinks that 40+ years of stomach sleep isn't just gonna give itself up to other positions.

I'd sleep a lot better if I didn't constantly hear "get that thing off of my back".

I do better on less sleep. Friend of mine says that is a sign of something, according to the DSM. But, whatevs I feel good.

Yes, because of course people go to sleep in one position and remain in it for the entire night.

Two weeks ago I woke up and had worked myself into some kind of pretzel  - both arms were under me at weird angles. Since I wasn't fully conscious, it took a few seconds for me to untangle myself. And one arm was apparently in such a strange position that my shoulder hurt for a week - not sure if I pulled something (in my SLEEP!) or kind of pinched a nerve.

I generally fall asleep on my stomach but wake up on my back, but I can't fall asleep any other way.

Same! Maybe the same thing is wrong with me too.

You've got twin beds too?

One time I tore a muscle in my neck while sleeping. I have no idea how. Had to wear a neck brace for a month.

I used to sleep on my back until I developed sleep apnea, now I can only sleep on my left side, and I never move when I sleep so I pretty much wake up in the exact position I fell asleep in.
 
2018-06-20 04:21:56 PM  
I used to have really bad sleep.  Back in the days when I would just pass out...

Nowadays I go to sleep normally and sleep soundly.  The strangest thing of all is that I wake up at the same time every day no matter what time I go to sleep.  And I haven't used an alarm clock in years.

I actually dig it.  I get up and start my day at 6:00.  I've already got shiat done before I go to work.  And on the weekends, I get a clean 3 hours in before anyone else wakes up.

This headline.  It doesn't apply to me.

"Sleep coach"? Jeebus. I need to make up a job title and collect money from morons. Food consumption specialist has been taken. How about "Chewing Coach"?

I'm not sure how I sleep so I'll sleep with each of those women in the article and find out.  Probably need a few days with each to be sure.  It's science, don't question me.

"No, I made some mistakes."

Last Saturday I woke up, felt ok and prepared my coffee.  I went to the computer room and sat down to look at the usual stuff I check out on the Internet every morning.  15 minutes later I got up from the office chair to bring my empty coffee cup back to the kitchen but could not stand up straight without this horrible pain in my back on the lower right side just above the butt and close to the flank.  I have no idea what happened and have been wondering if it was something caused by sleeping in a bad position.  I like to sleep on my side and I remember sleeping more in a fetal position the night before.
Anyway, since then I've been taking a lot of Tylenol and a couple of muscle relaxants trying to deal with this.  I've tried sleeping with a pillow between my legs but it hasn't helped.  I've gotten a few massages (which has helped with the pain) and the person who did them said I have a real knot in my muscle just above my butt on the right side.  This getting old can really suck sometimes.

Does the pain run down your leg to your foot? If so you might have sciatica. Google it for treatments.

I tend to sleep on my side, and for some reason favor facing the edge of the bed rather than the center.

Also, WTF is this?

I've had sciatica before.   I hope this doesn't evolve into that again as it was one of the most painful aches I've ever had.  I remember not being able to find a single position sitting, standing or laying down to make the pain go away.
 
2018-06-20 08:47:35 PM  
I sleep in whichever position my husband allows me to.  It's on my left side.

I snore enough to wake the dead.
 
2018-06-20 10:03:10 PM  
I try to get to bed before 10:30 and hope to initially wake around 3:30-4 AM. From there I'll lay quietly and fight the cat for bed space until 6 - 6:30. I'll consider that a full night's sleep.

Sounds about right. The only semi-comfortable position for me was bent over the arm of a couch that I was kneeling on. That's no way to live.
Insurance at the time didn't cover decent PT, so I went to a chiro for about 10 visits and that worked out okay. You have to get away from those guys before they start with the woowoo bullshiat though. In any case, good luck to you.

I bought two Sobakowa Buckwheat Hull pillows, they are about half the size of a standard pillow. They are heavy, fairly flat, a little noisy and THE MOST COMFORTABLE PILLOW TO EVER CRADLE MY HEAD AND NECK! These are the original type, just Buckwheat Hulls. The difference it's made towards me sleeping more soundly was pretty big, it's hard to even get to sleep when every position you try is uncomfortable and it feels as if someone is twisting your head backward.

My Hubs swears by his as well, but oddly enough we don't use them every night, we have our 'favorite' pillows we use most often but get a grumpy crick in your neck and spend a night on that Sobakowa pillow and you wake up with it feeling somewhat if not altogether better. Sometimes it will take two or three nights to calm my neck but I've never woken up with my neck feeling worse in the morning with the Sobakowa pillow and I have with my regular pillow. It can be the difference between tossing and turning all night and actually sleeping that night.

When I say "a lot" I mean two 500 mg tablets every 8 hours.  It's not that much but it's more than I usually ever take.
