A Question For People With MS

Dr. Park here from the sleep-breathing forum. I answered Laura's question about sleep and MS here:


I'm taking an informal poll for people with known MS:

What's your favorite sleep position? Is it your back, side or stomach?

After I tally up the results, I'll give you the reason that I ask.

unfortunately I can only sleep on my back now.
I wake up with painful numbness if I sleep any other way...

Start on my stomach, but I think I end up on either side.

Since 1997 I have had to sleep on a recliner, due to spasms when I try to lay down. I am at a slight angle, not quite in an up-right position. Spasms are so much worse when my body starts to relax. Sleep is mostly cat-naps
