I use a regular body pillow but they do make pregnancy pillows which is shaped a little different it can curve around you neck/shoulder and go between your legs and curve around your butt...it's all a matter of how much you want to spend! Also the only time you have to be leary of sleeping on your belly is when you are further along....not because it will be harmful to the baby but it's super uncomfortable !
I just got a latex pillow from Bed Bath and Beyond last night. I think it will take a little time to get used to, but I definitely woke up a little less sore than usual. I will let you know how it goes after I have slept on it awhile.

Without medication pain level is above 10, after medication pain level is 9. My pain is so severe that it appears to lock the turning of my neck to the right. I am asking for any help regarding if there is exercises for this type of problem. My mornings after waking are the worse for me. I have been sleeping with 2 pillows under my legs, flat on my back, and 1 pillow under my head but this doesn't seem to be helping either. Is there any help for me?

I bought a snoozer pillow and I love it! I takes the pressure off your bump and hips ... very comfy! I was on vacation last week and couldn't take it with me and really missed it! Although it was a bit strange when I first got it, I rolled off the top part that sits under your head it and ended up with a sore neck but I persevered and got used to sleeping on it and now I sleep much better.
It may range from general pain in the neck area along with stiffness on neck muscles. It can radiate to shoulder or back, or arms or go up to head. Muscle sprain or tension following daily routine activities like bending over a desk for long, poor posture while watching tv, placing your computer monitor too high or too low, or sudden jarring of neck.
Is there anything in the meantime I can do to make the pain end so I can sleep at night? Ie seems the more I try to massage the shoulder/neck the more it becomes painful and tender. i can ont afford continues massage therapy either. I don't want to rely on sleeping pills to get me thru each night because they will become immune after awhile.
I do regular health checkups for my work (programmer) and my eyes are perfect , blood pressure fine , only thing out of the ordinary is a rested pulse of about 85 bpm , but its kinda genetic since my father also has it , and other then that my heart is fine for the moment (my father has some issues but of course brought by old age) The pain is lessened if i find a comfortable position with my neck usually lying on the bed without a pillow, but as the pain radiates to my right side its very dif
Does anyone have any suggestions on sleep positions without neck pain.? I am dealing with cervical arthritis/damage and broad based disc osteophyte complex with moderately severe bilateral neural foraminal narrowing stenosis to C-3-4-5-6-7. Most sleep positions I've tried results in headaches upon awakening or radiating shoulder/arm pain. Aside from sleeping, has anyone had any experience with facet joint injections? or cervical injections? both done by pain management doctors?

So I tried not taking anything and just dealing with the pain. But I couldn't sleep and was in tears the pain was so bad. I called my ortho dr. back and he referred me to a Pain Mgmt Clinic which I am still going to, have been since 2006. They are very good at this clinic, but have yet to diagnose the source of my pain...after trigger point injections, botox injections, facet injections, nothing has helped. He prescribed physical therapy 3 times to no avail.
My knees bother me and I have swelling heat and tenderness to the touch at my neck. I have consant muscle spasms in my neck, shoulders and upper chest. My right upper leg hurts as does the base of my scull. I am taking oxycodone 30mg and cybalta. The cymbalta only helps with my anxity, it does not touch the pain. The oxycodone helps with pain but it only lasts for about 3 hours. What is wron with me? Why do I so much sharp pain?
Hi, About 4 months ago I woke up one morning and I had some pain in my neck on my right side. Like I slept on my neck wrong or something. Over the next few days the pain got progressively worse. A week or so went by and the pain went away. So, I thought I just slept on my neck wrong or something. Well, about 2 months ago, the same thing reacurred. This time after a few days went by, I was getting up from doing something, and something happened in my neck and shoulder area.

Last time, my family doctor gave me some medicine which releieve me from the pain within 10 days.
The headaches dont follow any specific patterns as they are always different and fit symptoms for every type of headache. I go to sleep with a headache and wake up with one. Pain pills sometimes dull the pain but nothing can make it go away, not even morphine. I have been for every test and scan and they cant find anything. i have tried so many different combinations of medications, none of which helped. About 6 months ago i was in a car accident.

precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain.

I have had an MRI done of my head and neck, CT with and without contrast. Normal X-ray, I have been through Physical therapy, I have not been in any accident, or trauma. The weird thing is, is that it may go away for a few days then it comes back. Nothing seems to aggravate it one way or the other such as movement or anything. It does not prohibit me from moving my head up, down, side to side ect. It is not really stiff or anything either.

In fact I've had to keep a towel under my neck to help me move it when I'm laying down. When I sleep laying down I wake up from the pain every time I try and move my neck or when my husband moves in the bed. Also driving with the bumps in the road or the stop and go motion makes the pain worse. I have taken Vicodin and Motrin. Heat pads seem to help. Also the pain gets better and just turns into an ache/stiff neck during the day.
five hours maximum, and waking with NO pain, but when the weekend comes, and I am sleeping more than that is when I experience this horrible pain. So, I know for a fact that the pain is directly related to sleep (for me). I first went to my MD, and was told that it is muskuloskeletal, and that Motrin should help. No dice.
Active stretches are very effective for treating AND PREVENTING future neck pain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr1Wv0D0RKo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUaev2xMTMk Finding a pillow that works for you is also very important. For me it is The Original Contour Pillow. I have only been able to find this on line. It was not very expensive last I ordered one. Around $20.
I experience this with gnawing pain in the back of my head and basically complete neck discomfort. Along with all these sensations and pressures I have sharp pain that runs down the side of my neck from time to time and some pain and tingling, never really numbness in my arms. The pressure/ tension seems to be less in the morning and worsen with the days. The best way I can describe the feeling is like a bubble is under the skin of my head in random places.
