    Through college I pretty much only sleep on my stomach, but since college (a long time ago), I'm pretty much a side sleeper. How about you?

    (hey, we've had dumber polls).

    Usually wherever I happen to land, in whatever position and condition I am in.

    #3 1 year ago

    Good soldier position with one dog by my feet and the smaller dog nestled between my legs.

    I didn't see that as one of the options.

    #4 1 year ago

    I've never slept with a poll so I'm not sure what my sleep position would be.

    #5 1 year ago

    Usually right arm under my head, left arm flipped over my head. Legs spread with dog in between. Half way on back and side in a contorted mess. Didn’t see that option.

    I am definitely pro sleep. That has long been my position on the subject of sleep.

    Not a pole, but a spoon. Prefer to spoon or be spooned.

    Quoted from Mitch:

    I've never slept with a poll

    I've never slept with a Czech.

    #9 1 year ago

    60% on left side, 30% on back, 10% on right side. But moving around like the cartoon Tasmanian devil all night.

    #10 1 year ago

    On my back making sounds that would drown out a Boeing 747 at full take off!

    Well, I suppose its better than being forked.

    #12 1 year ago

    I am absolutely against it.

    #13 1 year ago

    Usually on my sides.

    #14 1 year ago

    My back is trashed so I sleep every way with lots of pillows, it makes traveling hard cause I use a sleep number bed and can make bed firm or soft.

    Naked.

    This morning I woke up still sitting in my chair with the TV blaring.

    #18 1 year ago

    I’m a side sleeper, but my wife spends most her time on her back......

    #21 1 year ago

    I wake up every morning under a mountain of Red Bull cans with the Xbox controller still in my clutch

    #22 1 year ago

    I hang upside-down like a bat.

    Quick story.
    Docs requested a sleep apnea test. One goes to a strange place, in a strange bed, and wires you up.
    Of course it discovers you dont sleep well. A CPAP machine is often the recommendation, a mask you wear at night to push air in.
    Ill grant you that there are many people that DO need this, but Tons of false readings.
    First, the tests can be off because you know you have wires on you, a camera, and a strange bed.

    I went over my issues, hated trying to sleep with a mask, and fixed my issue by altering the angle
    of my throat/head.
    I made my own pillow. Memory foam for the bottom with a cutout for my arm/hand, cooling gel in the
    middle layer, and a buckwheat pillow on top. Its thicker than others, but still fits a pillow case, and my head is now angled to an open airway.

    As we get older, this becomes an issue, but try working your pillows first or new mattress.....

    Similar story... wife complained I snored and kept her awake. Insisted on sleep study knowing that you can't snore with a CPAP covering your face. Study completed and CPAP prescribed. 15 years ago got rid of the CPAP and the wife. Best decision I ever made! I can breath again!!

    Sleep Apnea is really common. Ive had it for over 20years but didn't know I had it until a few years ago. I am 42, in shape and try to sleep 6-8 hours per night. Start with a snore guard mouth piece. Its designed to move your lower jaw forward so your tongue doesn't fall back into your throat while your sleeping. Anyway, had the snore guard for 3 years but stopped working. Now I am on an A-pap machine. (similar to the Cpap). My AHI is under 3. Was 15 on my sleep study a few months ago.

    Oh another thing. If you suffer from Heart Burn. Sleep Apnea 100% causes Heart Burn. With my A-pap/CPAP machine I no longer have heart burn and stopped taking Prilosec (3 years on it).

    Couldnt agree more. In my case, I was tossing and turning...no snoring, They were testing in regard to coronary disease.
    Its all kinda tricky, and never gave it a thought until after 40.
    As others have hinted, the best remedy is still good sex before sleep!, IMO.
