Doubleb (Therapy Thread)

RE: Doubleb (Therapy Thread)
So after several straight bad nights I used one of my Google cameras to record my sleep. I am rolling over on my back and not chin tucking. My lower back has been hurting for a few weeks now so after a few hours of side sleeping I roll over to reduce the pain. Then the apneas start.

I understand and have a similar problem. I start out on my side until the hip pain wakes me. When I start to turn over, I make a conscious effort to keep rolling to the opposite side.
Try rolling to your opposite side instead of your back.

RE: Doubleb (Therapy Thread)
Definitely. The issue is I’m not waking up. Tonight I’m going to try to find something stiff enough to put behind my back to keep me from rolling over.  Or maybe if I start out on the other side maybe I’ll just roll over to my more natural position. 

But I cannot suggest the camera trick enough. Oscar tells me the time it started then I can look at the footage and know exactly what happened.

Try taping a tennis ball (or something of a roughly similar size without hard edges) to your back or to whatever you're wearing to sleep. It's a classic technique that works. If you wind up on your back you'll quickly get off it because having a tennis ball suddenly and unexpectedly digging into your back isn't generally comfortable.
