I keep waking up with a really stiff and sore neck. As soon as I'm upright it disappears. Either I'm sleeping awkwardly or I need a better pillow. I currently use 2 pillows & both are quite flat.

Had a look online and some pillows are quite pricey. I don't mind spending the money if it helps but I'd welcome some recommendations please before splashing out.

Can anyone help? Thanks

I got a curved one from IKEA and it is lovely. No more neckaches. Can't remember the name sad

Get a memory foam 'dog bone' one, absolutely brilliant. Tempur do one but there are cheaper ones. I wouldn't be without mine, it even goes on holiday with me 😀

recently i went with a friend to buy a bed and they also sold pillows - you could try them with the beds.

we went into "dreams" - some were soooooo lovely! try different ones - try latex, memory foam and real feather ones and see which you might prefer.

Memory foam is hot to sleep on; Dh has been suffering from pins and needles and has taken to using my old V shaped BF pillow from the White Company; but I don't know if they still do them... DS is 17!

I went to TK Maxx and bought a memory foam pillow.

I had severe neck pain that travelled up to my temple. For about a month I thought I had brain cancer it was that bad. Anyway, medication didn't help and I was dosing up on ibuprofen which wasn't good. I've had the pillow for about 3 months now and I don't wake up with a neck ache or head ache anymore.

Thanks takesno that looks good and is a lot cheaper than some of the other pillows i've found when searching. TK Maxx also a good idea thanks.

I have a flat one and then a feather one on top as I love a pillow I can plump up. I have been known to take my pillows with me when I stay at hotels or friends house as I have never found comfortable pillows away from home. Do you have a window open at night by any chance? My velux window blows on neck and has caused my neck to hurt the next day.

Madmother, yes I have been sleeping with window open as it's so warm. What's a velux window?

Last night I added an extra pillow so I had 3 pillows, 2 quite flat & the 3rd more plump. I was almost sleeping half sitting up. No neck pain this morning, how strange.

I also had 3 glasses of prosecco last night....not sure if that made a difference😂🍸
