Falling Asleep in Odd Positions While Recovering from ACDF

I had a single level (C5/C6) ACDF on April 10th and have realized lots of gains since then...although I have a long way to go, particularly with regard to nerve healing. My problem is that I have managed to fall asleep in weird positions several times over the past two or three weeks. Tonight, I fell into a deep sleep lying on the floor and I think I had my neck crooked really oddly to see the TV. I awoke about an hour later, with my left arm sore up near the shoulder and somewhat dead feeling. Have any of you had a similar problem in the months following an ACDF? Do you have any advice on how to avoid such situations?
