I’ve had problems with dizziness and vertigo most of my life. I have progressively had to sleep in more elevated positions to accommodate, alleviate and a oid symptoms, to some degree. I cannot lie flat, on my side or back. I am up to four pillows now and it’s ridiculous. It’s extremely difficult to sleep like this but I tried going back to three and got worse. However, the pressure that four pillows exert on my neck sometimes causes headaches. Now that I have a shoulder prioblem, it’s impossible to reconcile both ailments to be comfortable enough to sleep. Dizziness always prevails over pain, so if I have to sit up all night because of my shoulder, then to try to avoid dizziness, that’s what I have to do.
I was wondering if anybody else has to deal with this and if doctors have given any explanations why keeping thenhead elevated, is necessary.
