    Cuddling is causing shoulder pain

    My wife likes to cuddle with me by laying her head on my left shoulder. I love cuddling with her but lately I've been experiencing increasingly worse pain in my shoulder when she does this. I've had to ask her to stop, which is not what either of us wants. Does anyone know how we can continue cuddling like this, but without the shoulder pain?

    I have the same problem, plus a pinched nerves in should and neck. Couple of things to do: 1) change sides. about once a week change sides of the bed and give your shoulder a rest. It beats stopping.
    2) have her move lower to your chest or on to your arm more. Moving places the pressure affects will decrease the pain and soreness.
    3) OTC pain meds(non steroidal anti-inflammitory) 1/2 hr before bed can help some.
    4) change cuddling positions. Spoon her or just hold hands a couple nites a week.
    What ever you do, don't stop cuddling. I know I've had my hand and arm go to sleep with her on my should, but I would never stop.
