Default Re: Sleeping problems

My husband is in need of some help. We recently got a hospital bed with an alternating pressure pad for him to sleep in. It was great for a night or two. However, he will sleep for a few hours then wake up with terrible back pains. It hurts him to sleep in his permobil chair now, too. Any ideas?
(pain meds really cause intestinal discomfort for him---huge problem)
