    Short of installing a forklift in my bedroom, does anyone have any solutions to ease rolling over in bed?   Do you have this symptom?  If so, do you have any recommendations for how to compensate?  I wear satin pajamas which helps, but I am looking for some other ideas.

    My physical therapist and I addressed this in LSVT Big.  I put both hands together extend my arms and swing the arms to the other side.  Much better than what I was doing, sitting up in bed to turn over to my left side.

    I kind of do the “hospital roll” that I learned when I had my back surgery. I kind of prop myself up with my elbows until I get where I need to be. However, for at least 2 years I can’t lie on my right side – it’s too painful at the time and then after I get out of bed. Not fun!

    thanks laura for sharing.   the thing that gets me is that it disturbs my sleep when i have to focus on how i change position.  it is almost like getting out of bed for me.  then i cant fall back to sleep so easily. lol
