Sox was wanting a new pillow as well, so we bought some moderately priced down pillows. Again this treated me right for a while. Some feathers started working their way out of the pillow and were poking me which was not comfortable.
A few months ago I started waking up with a sore neck, and a sore ear. The pillow had to go. Sox had a pillow from when she had a sore back so I gave that a go. It was a Tempur-Pedic memory foam pillow that had a funny shape.
Again this was treating me right for a while, but again I am waking up in the morning with a sore neck. Plus this pillow makes it hard to sleep on my back. This pillow is more firm than any other I have used, and it is taller as well. This is fine for when I am sleeping on my side, but bad for any other position.
Now I am trying to figure out what to try next. I don’t want to spend tons of money on pillows, but I also want to get a good night sleep, and not wake up sore.
