I don't mean over my face. I sleep on my side, and when I can't relax or I feel ill if I put a pillow over my head I feel better and sleep like that for a few hours. Am I cutting off oxygen to my brain, or is it dangerous in some other way? Sometimes I wake up feeling funny in my head, but I think that probably would have happened if I'd stayed feeling agitated or ill all night.

I do that too, but I always make sure I have some sort of "direct" connection to air if you know what I mean. You shouldn't cut off your fresh oxygen, don't lie there and re-breathe everything you already breathed (lol sounds weird). Make sure you have some sort of hole so that fresh air can get to your mouth and nose, and pull your pillow over all you like

The funny feeling in your head is probably just normal, especially if you wake up from a very deep sleep.

I used to sleep like that, but i change my pillow to a comforter. So everytime i sleep i put the comforter on my face and make a hole so i can breathe.
I don't think its bad though. a lot of people do it. If it helps you relax, then why stop it?

To me it sounds like somebody who sleeps by your side rubbing your back and telling you it's okay! :confused:

Just worry if you dream that you are eating a giant marshmellow. When you wake, your pillow could be gone!

As long as your face is not covered and you can get enough oxygen, no, it's not dangerous.

No- if you were awake, you'd realise you couldn't breathe properly (surely..) and if you were asleep, you wouldn't be able to hold the pillow over your head hard enough to cause you not to be able to breathe properly.

If by pillow you mean an angry axe murderer, then yes it is quite dangerous...
