Excellent pillow system to manage pain
A little bit of a background: I have problems with my neck and right shoulder, managing pain (some compressed vertebrae in my neck). Sometimes I also have to battle reflux. For the last couple of years I haven't been able to sleep on my back because my I start snoring very loudly, so I had to always sleep on my side, which had worsen my shoulder pain. I had spend a lot of money on pillows, trying to find at least a good one. I was also about to invest over $10,000 in an adjustable SleepNumber mattress system. Then, I came across MedCline add and decided to give this pillow a try before getting myself into a $10000 mattress. The first weekend I have the pillow, on the Saturday, I woke up at 10am for the first time in more than 10 years. Usually, pain would wake me up at no later than 7:30am. PROS: 1. Allows me to sleep with my vertebrae fully aligned, so I don't wake up with neck pain anymore. 2. Because of the arm pocket, my shoulder doesn't hurt anymore when I wake up. 3. I can sleep on my back and on my sides with no issue, perfectly aligned. 4. Absolutely no snoring, no matter my sleeping position. 5. In combination with a diet change, this pillow had helped me with reflux. Also, I can breathe better through my nose. CONS: 1. It tends to get warmer than other pillows I had used. 2. Sometimes I develop some pain on my ears, I guess the long pillow press against my ear. 3. It takes a few days to get used to it. In summary, I believe I found a very good pillow in medcline, which is solving significant issues with my sleep. Some may say it is expensive, but I found it a bargain when I compared with a $10,000 mattress system. It had worked so well for me, that I just ordered a second one for my wife. I would not hesitate to buy it again.
