    • Hi there   I had that problem until I bought V shaped pillow - I found it eased the pressure a lot and I slept better.  Like Clare still uses her memory foam, I still use a v shaped 16 years on.  I even take it with me when I'm stopping somewhere overnight.
    • Hi, I had my SAH in May and work as a nurse in insurance. I returned to work in September and found it very hard on 15hrs per week. I’m now on 20hrs with a view to doing 25 hrs in January 2023. From my experience I would say a return to work over 6 months is far more realistic and even then I’m not sure I’ll make full time.   I’m 52 and need to work as single parent so very motivated to do as much as I can but I’ve found it very difficult. Tasks such as reading, talking in groups, being in meetings and doing higher cognitive tasks just wipe me out. Varying my tasks throughout the morning help and doing the hardest things first thing also help. Good 👍 luck!
    • Thank you Claire, that’s good you’ve found relief. I do actually have a memory foam too but thought it was maybe the problem with it being quite hard. I might have to investigate other options.  
    • Hi Lily I too had pressure pain after my bleed. I bought a hard memory foam pillow and this really helped. I still use it now.  Hope that helps.  Clare 
    • Does anyone else experience pressure pain at the back of their head on your pillow whilst in bed? I had a NASAH 7 months ago but still get this ache most nights and wonder if it will ease? Looking for advice on anything that helps rather than just taking pain relief, thank you
