    pillow advice needed.

    I hope there is someone from the community out there who can help before I spend £60 on a pillow (again). My problem is most pillows numb my ears. Dunlopillow latex have been my only option. If you have ever had pins and needles in your ear you will know it is excruciating.

    I have tried memory foam, memory foam core and most spiral fibre pillows. Duck feather pillows have also failed. Any ideas?

    Rather than something heavy, try something light. Down is light, it's natural and although expensive, will ensure you don't have pressure points.

    Tried an orthopedic pillow? One of the "V" shaped ones?

    Maybe it's the shape and not what it's made of perhaps. I changed from standard pillows to these last year and its improved my quality of sleep

    I use tempur. Although I've never heard of this number ears thing!

    I did say I have tried memory foam. Tempur is just a brand name. Be glad you haven't heard of numb ears because it's truly horrible!

    I have had pins and needles in my ears a couple of times when I've slept funny . Not pleasant . Have you tried one of those neck pillows ? It might just move the position of your head so your ears don't get trapped .

    I relate to your problem and I would suggest a down pillow - not feathers. They are more mouldable to create a little hollow for your ear with no pressure on it.

    We have bought buckwheat pillows and are quite happy with them. I'm not sure it would suit you though as I don't know what causes the numbing.

    stating the obvious it's probably better to find out the cause.if you wear a hat do you get it ? if you lay on one side does it only affect one side ? have you tried a different pillow case material ? have you had allergy tests ? is it due to your ears getting cold ? have you tried hypnotism ?

    Dorma Full Forever Firm-Support Pillows, never had such a good nights sleep.

    Eh? Everybody sleeps on their side at some stage which naturally squashes your ear - are you sure it's not indicating some other problem? I've never ever had a numb ear from lying on it, red and warm yes, but never numb.

    Like Psycho says, try a contour memory foam pillow - it will give you a little bit more room at least.

    You could always try a donut shaped pillow/cushion with a hole in the middle eg.
