I changed to a new chiropractor last week, he's been DH's for a while. Apparently they were discussing my pillow at their last appointment, so I am expecting him to suggest a change of pillows at my appointment this week. Where do you get a buckwheat one? And is that opposed to a feather pillow or a memory foam one?

I think I've seen buckwheat pillows at Walgreens but call first. The chiropractor may know of some places that sell them too.

We were gone 10 days. Having a hard time getting back to reality.

It's called a sobakawa pillow and I got it off amazon. It makes noise as the buckwheat hulls shift and it is small. It conforms to your head since the buckwheat hulls are loose. It took me about a week to get used to sleeping with it. I took it with us on vacation. It has made such a difference.

I have heard of it, DH has a small pillow that has those small little "pills" of some sort that we take on airplanes occassionally, it sounds like sort of the same type of thing. I'll have to see what the chiropractor recommends. I know I am in need of a new pillow, I love my memory foam one, but I think it was the shape of mine that he didn't like since it has a supportive thing for your neck, but DH said that pushes your spine forward and causes problems. I'm not a back sleeper at all, I'm a side sleeper, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

I have converted from a side sleeper to a back sleeper since getting this pillow.
