OCsunshine Posted March 1, 2006 Report Share Posted March 1, 2006 So my doc has suggested I try tilting my bed up at a slight angle, so my head is higher than my feet while I sleep at night. (He was throwing out all kinds of suggestions b/c I am hesitant to try more meds, I wanted some alternative ideas.)He said that this was tried by a physician in the 40's and it worked for him. He noticed the effects so much that when he traveled and slept in a flat bed, his symptoms would all come back.So, I thought I'd give it a shot... last night was the first night. It was odd at first (my husband put blocks under the 2 feet at the head of the bed, so it's raised up about 8") but I really didnt notice throughout the night, I was afraid my little dog might roll off at some point, but she was fine. Heheheh.Since I slept like that last night, I had a 'good' day today, not much standing problems. But that is probably a total coincidence, sometimes I randomly have 'good days' you know? So I'll keep trying it and see what happens.Just wondering if anyone else has tried this... ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
