    what do you sleep with on your feet?

    I have heel pillows or boots but the velcro comes off when I move or spasm. Looking for a good recomendation to use so I can sleep more comfortably. Thanks for your help

    When I had significant leg spasms I slept with my socks on. Sheet burns were the only concern I had. Now that my spasms have pretty much stopped due to old age and medications I do not use anything.

    Prevalon boots provide good foot protection, but can be a problem when trying to turn yourself. Heel pressure ulcers are very common, and the easiest type of pressure ulcer to prevent if using proper foot protection in bed.

    I use a rectangle (18 inches wide by 40 inches long) of medical sheepskin placed at the foot of the bed. Nothing on my feet to impede turning. Otherwise in the winter, I will wear a pair of wools socks for warmth.

    All the best,

    I'm using these http://www.thewooltablesheepskins.ca.../medical15.htm (hope the link works)
    The Prevalon ones were too bulky, I'm a side sleeper and it was difficult to position my legs with them on. Also they were too warm for me, even with no blanket covering my feet.

    For the past 42 years, I've slept with a pillow under my calves. I start on my back with my heels hanging over the edge of the pillow slightly so they don't, or barely, touch the mattress. As I turn to my side, my spasms automatically bend my knees up and to the side, and then my feet lay on their side on the pillow. When I turn back over to my back, my spasms push my legs out straight again with my heels still not touching the bed. I have great sensation and the pressure of my heels on the mattress hurts in no time at all.

    Mr. 2drwhofans uses Prevalons http://www.sageproducts.com/products...n/prevalon.cfm
    I search ebay for new-in-package that are well priced.
    Machine wash them on Delicate/Cold with Woolite and prop up on chair posts to dry.
