I have NTM/MAC and have recently been reinfected with the bacteria again. Last Thursday I had a Bronchoscopy to determine if I was aspirating fluid from my stomach into my lung (I drank a blue dye), the results were positive although the culture readings are not back yet. The doctor immediately suggested that i sleep with the head of my bed at least a 30% elevation. I already had 4" blocks under the head frame. I also have back problems so I need a comfortable bed. Was wondering if anyone has purchased an adjustable bed and was pleased with it. I know I can use a foam wedge but it does not sound too comfortable. My husband also has reflux so an adjustable bed would benefit him as well. Any suggestions would be helpful.
