Re: disk bulgement and sleeping
You could sleep on your stomach with a pillow, but perhaps your pillow is too big. You just need enough to align your spine. Probably the best position if you could adjust is to sleep on your side with a pillow between your legs, or on your back with a pillow under your knees. I used to be a stomach sleeper, but can't anymore, due to bulging discs. I put a 2 inch memory foam topper on my bed and that has helped, along with side and back sleeping.
