Did you know that pillows can impact on the quality of your sleep and rest.

The wrong pillow can worsen headaches, neck pain, shoulder and arm numbness, discomfort, sneezing and even wheezing.

Another problem is that if your pillow is old then it could contain skin cells, mould, mildew, fungus
and dust mites etc.

The rule of thumb is that you should buy a pillow every 12 – 18 months.

  1. Totally agree – had a miserable night’s sleep for awhile then changed out my pillows and sleep a lot better. This is a great site.

    You may want to check out TMS or tension myositis syndrome for your back pain. I suffered for years until I read up on this.

    My site is in the link above – will definitely give you an alternative. Best of luck.


  2. I have tried every kind of pillow due to suffering with neck pain Some have been expensive and came with claims to do miracles but didn’t work. I currently sleep slightly propped up on two memory foam pillows but the thing that helps most is one of those travel pillows that go around the neck. The one that I’ve got is made of memory foam and I don’t know what I would do without it.


    • I must admit I love my v cushion for my afternoon rest in bed but find it difficult to use when I go asleep. For some strange reason I lie on my side when I go for a sleep in the afternoon and on my stomach when I go to sleep at night. I’ve never tried a memory foam one as I didn’t like the the mattress.
