I'm really curious as to what's a comfortable position to sleep in with a c6 pinched nerve? I've asked the ortho, the chiropractor, and still haven't received a decent answer. After telling them it's painful to sleep on my back since my neck is extremely sensitive to any sort of touch/pressure they both suggested lying down on my back. When I'm talking I feel like no one is listening very well. They just keep recommending things for me to buy. I feel as if it's a fairly simple question.
Does it hurt if you sleep on your back and have you found a good sleeping position where you don't wake up with pain/less pain? Does that position help you sleep better and help you to feel refreshed? I sleep on my left side elevated with a number of pillows, but it isn't the most comfortable position.
