Hi all, I have found sleeping on a wedge to be very helpful, but only if I can keep high enough up on it that the wedge begins at my hips. I start the night this way but inevitably slip slightly down, and when I do, I can tell I have more reflux. I have tried a million solutions involving pillow placement below my hips, etc. Now I think I have finally found a (slightly crazy!) solution-- based on what another person wrote on a website I saw. I bought a roll of that kind of woven plastic liner that you use for shelving or to separate dishes, cut out a rectangle of it, and put it under my hips as well as partly under the wedge to anchor it. This worked-- I did not slip!
But this brings me to my second issue. When I do manage to stay in place, my body starts to ache in the wee hours because of being in the same position for so long-- especially my left hip. I sleep on my left side because I have read in many places that this is the best position for reflux, and this has been my experience also. Right side is terrible; back is usually problematic as well. So the real question is: Has anyone found a way to stay in place on a wedge without getting sore from not being able to move around? Thanks!
