    Yes! Most of my recent (in the last few years) dislocations have happened while I’m asleep! It’s so frustrating because I’m usually not alert enough to properly put things back in place and end up hurting myself.

    All of the time! I had to come up with a system to keep myself stable at night: a thin, flat, pillow between the legs helps keep my hips stable... and having a pile of blankets in front of me and to the side of my head so that my arms can flop around without having the room to hyperextend
