Sleeping during the day is not generally helpful when you have a sleep problem as it can affect your sleep pattern.
However, if pain wakes you frequently a shorter, better ‘quality’ sleep at night may be helpful. If it suits your routine you can supplement this with a short daytime nap. If you do, this nap should be no longer than 20 minutes and taken no later than early afternoon otherwise it will affect your ability to sleep at night.
