    What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    Aloha CNET,

    What position do you find most comfortable to sleep in?

    I find sleeping on my side most comfortable but always wake up with shoulder pain. I usually try to go to sleep on my back but almost always end up rolling over to my side at some point in the night.

    What’s your preferred position for sleeping?

    Mahalo,
    Dan

    Re: What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    I either sleep on my stomach or on my left side, I can not sleep on my right side because it feels very uncomfortable to me. If you're having pain in your shoulder either put a pillow under you and sleep on your stomach like your cuddling or you can actually go to the chiropractor and they could see what's causing the pain. I know some people who would have pain whenever they sleep in a certain position, or have a strike of pain when walking. I would definitely recommend that because they have been getting better sleep and less or even no pain when they wake up in the morning.

    Hope this helps!!

    Hi Dan,

    Same here! I try to fall asleep on my back so that my spine is aligned. Have a good posture is important. I end up rolling over to my side usually. Having a good mattress makes a difference for side sleeping comfortably.

    Cheers!

    Hey Dan,

    I'm like you and Song. I start on my back because I feel my weight the most evenly distributed. Eventually I end up on my side, and I may wake up on my side or my back. Happy snoozes :)

    Dan,

    I am the same way. I normally favor my side but wake up with stiff and sore shoulders in the morning. Lately I have been falling asleep on my back and have been waking up on my back as well. So, my shoulders are thanking me. But I am for sure a back and side sleeper.

    Thanks for the forum! Have a great day!

    Hey Dan,

    I always sleep on my sides when I wake up, I always find myself sleeping on my back.

    I used to sleep on my tummy when I was younger but now, I only sleep on my sides or back. I find that sleeping on my back helps me when my back is aching.


    Thanks and have a great day!

    Re: What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    Hi Dan,

    I usually sleep on my side. More specifically on my left side facing the wall. I would wake up with back pains if I slept on my back and would feel like I can't breathe when I sleep on my stomach.

    As for you Dan, are you suing pillows (maybe to many or too soft) and possibly this in contributing to your pain?

    Re: What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    Hello Dan,

    I tend to sleep on my stomach with my hands to my side! For some reason I will switch the direction in which my face is facing through out the night! I guess my neck gets tired of being in one position? I have slept on my side as well but I get that shoulder pain too!

    Have a good day!

    Re: What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    I go to sleep on my back, wake up in four hours, lose sleep because of my anxieties for the future of humanity, thrash about trying to get comfortable, pass out on my right side. That's probably what's in store for my long term future. Maybe if some of you young people vote this fall I won't have such a difficult time sleeping. :-)

    Re: What position do you sleep? Back/side/stomach?

    Hey Dan,

    I prefer to sleep on my side most often and my left side to be exact. I deal with acid reflux and heartburn and sleeping on my left side doesn't make it act up as bad. I have even read before that it's suggested to sleep on your left side if you are a side-sleeper.

    Now there have been times I feel asleep on my back or stomach but most of the time it is my side.

    Hi,

    How I fall asleep and how I wake up are totally different, but when I fall asleep I it is on my side.

    Hey Dan!

    I usually sleep on my side. I cannot fall asleep on my back. It is so uncomfortable.

    Have a wonderful day!
