    Does anyone know any tricks on how to prevent my neck from subluxing in my sleep?#hypermobile #cervical #Pain #degenerativediskdisease

    I have hypermobile ehlers danlos and I often wake up with my head cranked to one side. I realize that this happens when I wake up after my husband gets up for the day. I'm not coherent enough to realize it happens until I wake up a few hours later. I'm a side sleeper and when he moves it shifts the bed and I fall forward and my weight and his pillows crank my neck. I have degenerative disk disease in my neck and TMJ in addition. Thank you in advance!

    What you gave up

    I was looking through my China cabinet and saw all the fancy glass my Grandmother gave me for entertaining guests. It was a reality check; I can barely entertain two guests now. I used to have twenty to thirty people over for party’s.

    It struck me to see people stay positive no matter what and I try to live this way also;I have 3 crushed neckbones and it is too dangerous to operate because I can still walk and stand up on my own
    So; this is 17 yrs ago and I live with constant pain since then, two yrs later I got Pfeiffer and since then I was always tired and all kinds of weird symptoms and my doctor started to laugh when I told him that I was thinking that I had fibromyalgia he even dared to ask me what that was ! Now I have a better doctor,I just want to wish everyone here all the love and light you people  deserve and together we could be Mighty  Greetings from Layla  Europe xxx

    Kyphosis suggestions?

    I have pretty noticeable kyphosis of my neck. I’d like to correct it especially before my wedding photos in October. Does anyone have suggestions as to how my doctor has been entirely unhelpful. #kyphosis #cervical Kyphosis #Fibromyaliga #BackPain

    Has anyone tried the Y strap at the chiropractor?

    I'm desperately looking for an alternative to surgery. It's dangerous, My physical appearance will be altered, The doctor said There's a possibility I could eat out of a tube for a few months, and I won'won't that much less pain anyway. He told to me to really take my time thinking about this and explore all other options. I know about massage and acupuncture. If my Insurance would only authorize them, I could afford them. Right now, no. Has anyone ever heard of the Y strap? It looks really dangerous, but if you get a good doctor It can help a lot of cervical and spine issues from what I hear.
    You lay down on a table, The doctor puts a black strap around your chin and neck, then pulls hard and fast. They massage with a special mach, and does a few other straightening adjustment. It sounds scary and looks scary. That's why I'm asking. Than you!

    Searching for pain relief

    Has anyone used a weighted blanket for better sleep and chronic pain. Did this blanket improve your sleep or lower your pain level?
