    Do you sleep on your side? If so I'd highly recommend one of these:

    http://www.the-pillow.com.au/more/co...ginal_more.php

    There are similar ones, search on google.

    I have one & it's amazing. I know they are expensive but I figured I can either spend heaps more money going to the physio & accupuncture & have constant headaches etc, or get the pillow. I do still have issues with my neck but it's been a lot better since I started using the pillow.

    I love my latex pillow!!
    The smell should fade if you air it - I think it's just from being in the packaging. Putting a protector on it and pillow case will also mask Amy remnants of the smell if you are super sensitive.

    I used to work in a bedding store and we sold heaps of memory foam - people definitely seem to like them! They are too firm for me though.

    ETA- we also recommended people give 10 days or so to adjust to a new pillow before deciding they didn't like it! Probably not helpful if you are in alot of pain though

    Im a side and a black sleeper and a tummy sleeper sometimes too

    All i know is i have a locum doctor coming to our home tonight to give me some strong pain killers cause i can hardly move my neck and my miagraine is awful.

    I tried a memory foam.pillow out when we bought a new bed on Sunday they recommended one after they did a sleep test thing on.me....Should have got one then.all i know is this medi rest pillow has stuffed my neck and undone all the pysio work in 2 nights. I need something not too firm and not too soft and low profile.

    I dont want to go through this again nor do i want to waste $100 on another pillow either.

    You poor thing. I would definitely try out the memory foam and latex in a shop and see what feels better. I know it's hard to judge from that but it might give you a bit of an idea.

    I had the dentons pillow took a couple weeks to get used too. Then I couldn't use it because I got reflux during preg 😐, I have given up on physio i felt good on the day of going then crap the day after!!! I spent $3,000 last financial year 😳

    I am at chiro now and my back and neck is AMAZING! Lots people don't believe in it but I knew it just had to be cracked in that one spot I knew for months, was telling physio where abouts she didn't do a thing to try and fix it.

    I find physios try and sell you things.. Classes.. Shoes.. Pillows... Etc my chiro doesn't do anything like that just readjust if I am naughty and lift something heavy etc

    My physio doesnt sell pillows so they werent trying to make me buy anything from them

    Today i got a dunlopillo soft latex pillow for $95. Its airing outside atm.

    The sales assistant got me to lay on a few sideways to check my spine was properly aligned and not too high or too low and this one was perfect apparently so fingers crossed!!!

    Glad you found something!

    I know it's an expense but it will probably be worth it in the long run! I've suffered for about 10 years of my life with chronic neck pain & still can't really get any answers. I've also wasted thousands of dollars on doctors & various treatments so I've had to do some trial and error & find the things that help & stick to them. The pillow is one thing that helps so although it's expensive it does save me money on stupid waste-of-time-and-money treatments in the long run.

    Good luck with your new pillow!!
