Side Sleeping

New pillow in December, when did your troubles start? is the pillow a different resistance, thickness or even material, Is your neck now at a different angle even slightly? As we all know small changes can have big and often unexpected results.

long before December and that is why we got new bed stuff. Good thought though. I just about think that it is stress related.

I just gotta add - I hate being old enough that I can hurt myself while sleeping - that's just so wrong~!

If there is extra stress going on (which it sounds like from your earlier post), that can definitely be a cause.

Stress will do funny stuff to us. I find that if the stress trigger can be related to your normal 'comfort' and sleeping on that side is part of your normal 'comfort', then being in that position might cause your brain to work/think too much about it. The new position of being on your back might be just enough of a distraction to keep the thoughts of the stress trigger sufficiently away to fall asleep.

Before CPAP, I often found that if I concentrate on my breathing it could keep those negative thoughts at bay. I think that when I started CPAP, it was a little easier as it made me concentrate on my breathing and thus helped get thoughts out of my head and into sleep instead of worrying about sleeping with a mask on my face.
