I need to find a good way to sleep. I normally sleep on my stomach (have been for years) and recently my back has started to hurt a lot in the morning. It feels relieved whenever I lay on my back, but for some reason whenever I try to sleep on my side, it hurts as well. I'm running out of ideas. I already tried putting a pillow underneath my pelvis when I sleep on my stomach- doesn't help. I tried putting a pillow between my legs when I'm on my side- also doesn't help. I've also tried putting a pillow underneath my feet & the small of my back when I try to start out falling asleep on my back, but it seems that the only comfortable way to fall asleep is on my stomach (but I know this can cause many problems). Does anyone have any advice? I'm a bit desperate.

I heard of someone who got really good help with sleeping positions from an OT. I think probably the OTs have available different types of wedges and pillows you can try and they can work out what gives you the best sleeping position. It might be worth a phone call to OT to see if your area would give you help on this.
How old it your bed, it is recommended to change every 10-15 years, I think on the lower side is good for us as our skeletons really need the correct support, and ensure the new bed is the correct firmness of any new bed/mattress. I have more pain if I sleep on a bed that is to soft or too firm and esp if it's too old
I switched to a tempurpedic mattress. They are amazing. Good luck! Doreen
