Pillow or no Pillow what kind of bed?

I'm suffered from tmj for many years.  I want to know if the bed or the pillow have to be related with the pain?

Proper neck and head support is beneficial to tmj.

I was told to roll a towel and when you lie down your neck will be where the towel is. ITs very uncomfortable at first but you get used to it.

I agree that proper neck support is important for tmj health. It also depends on the symptoms and origin of the problem. See a TMJ specialist to help you with the treatment.
