Raised bed causing me to slip down at night.

Do any of you have this problem? I first tried a wedge pillow which brought me neck pain since I kept sliding down the pillow, placing a strange angle between my head and neck. Next, I raised the head of my bed with cement blocks and I have pretty much the same problem. How do you remain in a static position throughout the night?

Re: Raised bed causing me to slip down at night.

I've slept on an incline for over 6 years now. I always have a bit of slipping. I find my biggest challenge is that my blankets tend to slide down as well. I end up quite cold when I wake up some days.

I'd certainly make sure you aren't sleeping on satin sheets. Other than that, I don't have a lot of advice.

How high are your cement blocks? I have my bed propped up about 5-6 inches.
