Patient : I am a side sleeper. I slept on my married sons bed for 4 nights while they were out of town. FIRM mattress. Had a hard time sleeping comfortably. Now that Im back in my own bed, each night has been difficult to turn and get out of bed in the morning. It hurts to even slightly move my shoulders from the middle of the back. Sharp sharp pain. Enough to scream in pain. My mother had multiple vertebrae fractured just by getting into bed. she was 80. I am 61.
