    Solution to back & shoulder pain creating inability to sleep?

    I am a 45-yr-old managing lower back pain (spondylolysis + spondylolisthesis) for 30 years. As such, I have been sleeping on my sides for decades. I have been sleeping the past ~5 years on a 14" Novaform memory foam mattress with a memory foam topper. Over the years, my shoulders have been waking me up more and more frequently due to pain. With an inability to sleep on my back & stomach, my quantity and quality of sleep continue to decline. A shoulder surgeon suggested I sleep on a recliner for 6 weeks (to reduce inflammation in my shoulders). I don't know if this will work. Plus, I can only imagine doing this with the assistance of some kind of meds / supplements: vicodin + naproxen, CBD oil, cannabis oil - or a combination of these.

    Any experience and/or suggestions to solve my night-time pains?
