What kinda of pillows are better to support the neck? I could start with that. I have a pillow I have been using since I was 14 I can't sleep without it. Pillows at other peoples houses and at mine are lumpy and uncomfertble but I am unsure if it is even good for me.
As long as u r not waking with pain from the way the pillow holds ur neck, it should be ok......if it is comfortable to u...than I would not worry.....u do not want ur neck to be too high off the bed tho as it can but ur neck in a position to cause a CSF blockage.
SO ur pillow should not be really thick......
I found a pillow at Target it was called a re-shape-able pillow , I am not sure they still carry it, but it has been the best pillow for me, I take it with me on long car rides ...sleep overs etc....
I dislike lumpy pillows as well...and why I like the re-shape-able one.
My husband and I sleep on a tempur-pedic bed, and this seems to help, although I suffer with neuropathic pain in my low back and sacroiliac joints! I also have had a problem finding the right pillow! I may try the one u recommend. Thanks. Kris
Hi Selma, I actually ordered the Chiari pillow online. It took some time to get it but when it arrived it was worth the wait. You can add or take out the stuffing as required and it molds around your neck and head. So glad I ordered it now...wish you luck!
