what is sleep tonight (it's 1:15 am and I've been awake since 10pm went to sleep originally around 7pm). But for the most part, side. I sometimes switch sides if I feel like my ear is getting squished or my back/hips are disagreeing with my choice but usually the right side (I have a bunch of earrings on the left side that make it kind of uncomfortable to sleep that way).

Does anyone literally freeze when they sleep? Not like, cold, but not moving at all? I freeze in the position I fall asleep in and frequently wake up with frozen/painful joints from not moving at all in my sleep.

Yes! I sometimes sleep with my arms above my head and I don't move in my sleep... so when I start shifting to change positions, it hurts like a bitch.

Nice to know I'm not the only one. I'm not sure if it's just my sleeping meds are really strong or what but I do NOT move until I wake up. Sometimes my arm will stick out over my bed when I'm on my side (I sleep on the right side of the bed) and it's HELLA painful when I try to move it in the AM. it's like my elbow and wrist lock up.

I always fall asleep curled up on my left side. I had the misfortune of my girlfriend taking a pic of me that way one time, thinking it was cute or some shit. I'm 6'5" so I just looked like a big retarded baby, lmao.

I tend to sleep on my side with my leg stretched out, sometimes elevated.

On my side in a fetal position or on my back, with arms crossed at the chest funeral style.
