I have had chronic neck pain for over 10 years. Based on a recent diagnosis, it is at least significantly connected to having degenerative disc disorder. I don’t think my pain is entirely caused by my pillow, but I don’t know if it might be worsening it. I’ve tried a couple of different pillows before. Does anyone know of a resource to use to find the best fit?

      I have a lot of neck problems which resulted in 2 surgeries! The first one was an 8-10 hr one with 16-20 screws in it, very extensive! The second one was 2 fractures(alittle higher up) and we don’t know if it was a result of the first surgery or not! It was a 5 hr surgery with a bone taken out of my hip and 6 screws! This was all within 3 year period and I’m actually still wearing the brace from 2nd surgery! I just had to search, buy and take back until I found one that fit my neck! I even tried neck pillows with the pillows to get the right fit! I think everyones neck shape is different! I have the degenerative disease plus osteoarthritis in the neck area also! Couldn’t give you a certain name of a pillow ect. to help you as I think you’ll just have to try different ones!😊
