    I'm at the chiropractor's and he asks me to explain my problem. I say:

    Should I point to where the pain is?


    and he asks how do I sleep at night. I say:


    My sleeping posture alternates during the night.

    Are both okay?

    Both are fine.
    You may consider using "changes" instead of "alternates."

    Usually, if someone asks "How do you sleep at night?", they are asking about the quality of your sleep, not the position.

    How do you sleep at night?
    Pretty well. I usually get about seven hours.

    How do you sleep at night?
    Really badly. I can't drop off and then when I do, I wake up every couple of hours.

    What position do you sleep in?
    I usually fall asleep on my side but I think I move around a lot in my sleep.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Your second answer doesn't work well for me.If the meaning is the one you intended, then I would use Emsr2d2's phrase about moving around a lot.

    Yes, she asks if I slept on my back or side.

    I would have asked What position do you sleep in? to get that information.
