Hi, just as an introduction I have a 7 mm right sided disc extrusion that has resulted in impingement of the root nerve and severe foraminal stenosis. For the last 7 months I have been in a world of pain -- one of the nerve medications I am taking seems to help but I still have very good days and very very bad days.
I had a medical professional mention to me that it might beneficial to try sleeping on the floor for a few weeks/months to see if that helps relieve some of my symptoms. I sleep on a very soft mattress and my pain is always at its absolute worse whenever I wake up in the mornings. I am curious if anyone has tried something this simple and seen positive results.
if so I was going to go out and get some extra floor pads/blankets & make myself a nice little pallet in my living room or something & then I can camp out there for a while. to be honest with all the nostalgia involved and memories of floor camp outs from when I was a kid, it almost sounds fun! not sure my girlfriend will agree...
any experiences would be helpful!
