Multiple sclerosis testimonials

Multiple sclerosis, sleep apnea, nocturia

Thank you so much, jcbresnik, for mentioning Inclined Bed Therapy here.  I read several mentions of it in these comments, and Googled and researched it and was very quickly convinced of the importance of sleeping on a 5 degree incline with the head 6 inches higher than the feet.  

I am already experiencing huge improvements in my MS symptoms, and many different areas, after only a few nights sleeping inclined.  It is so nice to wake up clear-headed and without pain for the first time in many years, and to sleep through the night without having to get up 5-10 times to go to the bathroom.  I also don't miss waking up with a puffy face and stuffy nose anymore either.

Finding out about Inclined Bed Therapy, which was discovered and has been researched by Andrew K. Fletcher since 1994, has been a huge blessing and something I hope everyone will try.  We are not meant to sleep lying flat, and it is a very easy thing to correct which in turn creates extensive health benefits.

Thanks to everyone else who mentioned it here.   And just to add to the list of things it can be very helpful for - Snoring, Sleep Apnea, GERD, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Spinal Cord Injury, Chronic Sinusitis and Bronchitis, Fibromyalgia, Muscle Pain,Varicose Veins etc...

When I was a teenager, my orthodontist diagnosed me as a "tongue-thruster" and told me that it was the reason my teeth were crowded - because normally when the tongue is kept in its proper position pressing against the roof of the mouth, it helps the palate expand properly.  As a tongue-thruster, my palate did not expand as much as it should have.  I am somewhat better at keeping my tongue where it's supposed to be, but I still have to think about it sometimes.

I used to have sleep apnea problems, especially while lying on my back.  As soon as I would start to fall asleep, my tongue would relax and block my airway apparently, and I would waken with a jolt.

A couple years ago, I read a comment on this forum recommending "inclined bed therapy" for MS and other problems like circulation issues and snoring.  Raising the head of my bed so that I sleep at an incline has improved many of my problems and I can now fall asleep on my back without sleep apnea issues.  I also sleep much better because another side effect of inclined bed therapy is that I don't have to get up to urinate ten or more times a night as I often had done before.  I really do believe sleeping inclined is the natural way to sleep.
