Wedge pillow for a side/stomach sleeper?
January 16, 2013 8:33 AM Subscribe
After any sort of cold/respiratory illness, I descend into a month or two of sore throat, raw/drippy/sneezy nose, and asthma-type-coughing and wheezing caused by post-nasal drip. In high school, I briefly used a wedge pillow to minimize this and I'm considering getting one again, but I'm not sure if my sleeping position is compatible with a wedge pillow. Any experiences and advice welcome.

I'm a side/stomach sleeper, pretty much hugging my pillow
and doing a hanged-man
/flamingo thing with my legs. I'm nervous that sleeping like this on a wedge pillow will torque my back in some weird way. Am I just being paranoid? (I plan on using the wedge pillow for elevation and then my normal pillow for normal pillow duties.)
Possibly relevant, but I don't think so: my tonsils are intact and really large, but have never been infected aside from a few tonsiloliths over the years.
