  1. I just want to add to look at a recliner with arms that hold a drink and/or magazines on the side. I bought my electric chair in my small town before I knew they had those attributes available. I had to add a lot of pillows to mine to make it comfortable (altho top of the line) and yes, I sometimes wake up with a backache but no amount of pillows in a bed was helping me sleep. Most of the time I feel like I'm "nesting" and comfortable with two small chests on either side, a bookcase kind of to the side & back of me & a movable hospital -like tray in front... containing most of my needs at my fingertips. I live alone sort of out of town so nobody but me to fetch & carry. Best to all.

    1. Hi again, Anita, and thanks for chiming in here and sharing your own personal experiences managing this condition with the community. Many in our community have expressed similar sentiments when it comes to having a decent night's sleep. For some, the bed-with extra pillows works. For others, it's a recliner (like you), a couch or simply raising up the head of the bed.
      We appreciate you sharing the specifics and details of how you get your best sleep using the recliner and the adjuncts to help you out too!!
      Please know, you are always welcome here in our online community!
      All the best,
