suffered long time due to aging discs. I bought this along with other neck pillow to test. this one is the one I've been uging about 9months now. I get up without neck pain, hard to sleep with other pillows now. It's pretty firm, so if youre looking for soft neck pillow, this isnt't for you. As I said, I don't use any other pillows since I bought it. That means it's very comfortable despise its firmness.
