In brief: Good question
The answer should be easy but differs from person to person.
You might need to try several products to find what works for you. Some people sleep on the side with a small pillow between their legs. Others buy a long pillow to place along their back. Others try different types of pillows. Buying a bed is a big expense but might be needed if other approaches do not work.

Some people have more serious sleep issues that keep them uncomfortable. Check with your physician if you have restless leg syndrome, or sleep apnea, and get appropriate testing before you change your mattress.

In brief: Insomnia
Could be several reasons why you can't get comfortable.
Back issues, weight issues, anxiety etc could all be contributors. Seek help from a sleep specialist if this continues.
