I only sleep on my right side (like a fetus); knees to chest since as far as I can remember. And I have numbness in my left arm sometimes in the early morning; as much as it wakes me up. Not everyday tho.

Everyone has a favorite position for sleeping. Mine is in lying on the right side, and it has been the only one comfortable for me until recently.
Now I can rest on my back for at least an hour, and not feel any pain or discomfort due to scoliosis or degenerative disc disease. The gentle traction of the inclined bed apparently has stretched my spinal column to this beneficial result.
I can also now lie -- and even sleep -- on my left side for the first time in many years. I used to carefully avoid lying on my left side, because within a few minutes there would be increasing numbness, tingling and pain on that side, along with a lot of cardiac arrhythmia. If I were unfortunate enough to accidentally fall asleep while lying in that position, I would awaken with all of those symptoms highly intensified, and severe spasticity besides. Not so, anymore!

Just curious as I would like to try it. I usually start off in the morning a bit slow and gradually improve as the day goes on. I'm hoping this will help with my morning sluggishness.
Thanks for sharing your experiences
