Good point. Actually what I try to do when I feel like this is make sure I'm in a good position when I get into bed. I'm basically on my back, pillow under my knees, one supporting my R arm (side where the pain is referred) and I place a rolled up towel under my neck (instead of a cervical pillow). I stay put pretty well.
