  • Try sleeping with your arm in a different position and see if that helps.

  • I agree with ati's advice that's all it took for me to have shoulder pain relief.

  • Oh and maybe starting out on your right side and then switching to left may also help.

  • mention this to your doctor, it can also be a sign of trouble with your gall bladder. something about the way the nerves connect. same as shoulder pain being a sign of an etopic pregnancy, but you are well past that now if the belly is too big to sleep on. just using it for a comparison.
