    Stroke and Sleep
    bonnieinkentucky posted:
    I had a stroke back in Mar. 2010, I now have trouble sleeping on my back and left side. Does anyone else have this problem too?
    Miselaineous responded:
    It is more comfortable for me to be propped up on my un-effected side. I have actually opted to sleep on the couch to not put pressure on my shoulder.
    JeffDaddy; responded:
    My stroke affected my right side, so I pretty much sleep on my left. For me, my right side "tingled" all the time, like when you hit your funny bone, so laying on my right side was definitely uncomfortable. The tingling has subsided substantially over 3 years.
