Everybody sleeps, how much sleep we get varies by individual, but there are different factors that may affect your sleep. A few of these factors could be surrounding environment, mattress, and pillow you are sleeping on. Many people own standard pillows whether it be down filled, stiff or soft we all rest our heads on them at night. What we may not realize, however, is that our pillow may be leading to neck stiffness, sleep apnea and other sleep related issues.

There are two types of pillows out there on the market that were created to tackle some of these issues. The first pillow is a gel memory foam pillow these are generally soft, yet still supportive, they do not require fluffing and they are on the market to assist with pain relief. Gel memory foam pillows can be found at a variety of retailers and they come in a variety of shapes. Some are contoured for the head and neck to provide extra support for those who sleep on their backs most of the time. As an added bonus they are generally allergy resistant. Another type of pillow on the market is the cervical pillow.

Although gel memory foam pillows were made to conquer neck and back pain they are most effective for back pain, while the cervical pillow was created to relieve neck pain. Cervical pillows do so by restoring the neck to it's normal C-curve (it's natural form), while improving posture and relieving pain. Just as the gel memory foam pillows these are non-allergenic and they fit most standard pillowcases. They offer comfort as well as ergonomic support while you sleep allowing you to feel refreshed the next morning. You wake up with little to no neck and back pain as well as a great night sleep, something many Americans do not get.

Overall, both options offer comfort and support while relieving pain and giving you a great nights sleep. They come in many different varieties; therefore, finding one that fits your needs - whether you sleep mostly on your back or your side - is not far out of reach. Many major retailers offer these products in their stores and they fit your standard pillow case. There is no added cost aside from tossing your old, non-supportive standard pillow for something that will last and give you the support you are looking for.

7 Pains You Shouldnt Ignore

Sinead OConnor

Health problem: Fibromyalgia

The controversial Irish rocker stepped away from the limelight in 2003, in large part because she suffered from fibromyalgia. Two years later, she was back, saying, Fibromyalgia is not curable. But its manageable. You get to know your patterns and limits, so you can work and plan around it. OConnor, who also has bipolar disorder, manages to juggle her career and raising four childrennoting that her high pain threshold and ability to lower her expectations that her life be perfect help take the pressure off herself to feel good all the time.

Jillian Michaels

Health problem: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Endometriosis

Former trainer for The Biggest Loser and current co-host of The Doctors, Jillian Michaels kept her diagnosis of endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) to herself for years, worried that it would damage her beacon of health reputation. The conditions can cause painin endometriosis, cells from the uterine lining can grow on other organs and tissue in the body; PCOS indicates a hormonal imbalance that leads to irregular menstrual cycles and small cysts in the ovaries. Michaels came forward about the conditions after a reporters questions about her plans to adopt prompted her to say she wouldnt put herself through the physical challenge of pregnancy. She later clarified that since her condition can cause infertility and pregnancy may require her to have surgical procedures, she felt more comfortable adopting. She has said that while she used to suffer from debilitating abdominal pain, she found that eating a diet that includes, among other things, organic foods and non-processed soy and exercising regularly have helped alleviate her symptoms.

Fake Foods To Avoid

Cynthia McFadden

Health problem: Crohns disease

When she was in college in 1977, the future ABC News/Nightline anchor was diagnosed with Crohns disease. Her coping mechanisms ranged from humorshe and her friends called it George to avoid having to discuss the specifics of her conditionto growing her fingernails long so she could dig them into the skin on her arm to distract her from intestinal pain that would leave her doubled over. McFadden has been in remission since having 15 feet of intestine removed in 1979, but its clear she can also credit her own steely determination with managing the disease: I decided a long time ago, I wasnt going to live my life around George. Her successful career as a news anchor is proof positive of that attitude.

I wondered, what if I took more risks?

Kathleen Turner

Health problem: Rheumatoid arthritis

The actress was first diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritisan autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks the soft tissue and jointsin 1992, though shed experienced symptoms for about a year before that. A blood test confirmed the diagnosis, which, in turn, gave the actress a healthy dose of perspective. Suddenly all that stuff about having good looks and being sexy took secondary position to being able to walk without pain, she has said. After abusing alcohol to cope with the pain, she got sober and set herself on a path to not only find a cutting-edge medication that placed her disease in remission, but to speak out about the disease. She went on a crusade to raise funds and awareness for RA (at least 1.3 million Americans suffer from it), earning a Lifetime Achievement Award for her work from the Massachusetts Arthritis Foundation. It is important to me that people know they have options so they can get some relief from this debilitating disease, she has said, noting that early treatment is key to managing the disease.

Montel Williams

Health problem: Multiple sclerosis

Millions of Americans remember the suave and successful host of The Montel Williams Show announcing that he had multiple sclerosis in 1999, a year after he received the diagnosis that put an end to 10 years of misdiagnoses for his chronic pain, but for which there had been other symptoms dating back to his late teens. Williams says he chose to view the diagnosis, ultimately, as a call to action. He went public with his diagnosis, largely to create a sense of urgency to find a cure. Today, he heads the Montel Williams Foundation, which, for 11 years, has raised funds for research toward a cure. Williams is also the author of eight books, including Body Change, which outlines the exercise regimen he uses to stay strong and keep additional symptoms at bay. He has said he exercises for 75 minutes a day.

Despite undergoing surgery to reinforce his spine with bolts, Clooney says the injury has never completely healed, forcing the 50-year-old star to drop out of filmmaker Steven Soderberghs upcoming version of the 1960s spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. According to, He said he just cant do the action and stunt scenes, revealed an U.N.C.L.E. source whos familiar with the actors health situation.

But even her doctor, who supervised her carefully, said, People are better off moving around than sitting around. Surgery to repair the disc has left her pain free.
