i was just wonderin if the pain im getting is normal. i have been in a providence brace for a few weeks. i got a memory foam mattress topper, and up until 2 nights ago ive been sleeping through the night on that. the first night i put the tightness to the second mark (out of 3), i slept through the night as well. but the night before last and last night, ive had to take the brace off after an hour! i have been really sore too. is that normal??? what can i do to fall asleep??? help!!!

Its normal to have pain, wearing mine 22 hours a day its much worse, but pain is normal, and if you can't make it thru the nite mayb u culd try it looser, or try some aspirin, i had to slp w.o mine a couple nites ago due to extreeeeme heat, plus i was so hot i was shiver ing O_O not good, so I would ask your doctor but pain is normal with anything new and it may just be delayed...like how if you run into a wall lets sya...haha and it doesnt hurt for a minute, your body mite just be adjusting still but definitely try to wear it as much as possible :) good luccck :D

I have a Boston brace and it's hurting me a LOT. I'm getting used to it though.
