How to protect back of head from matting together?

I'm at a scalp is very sensitive so I cannot put my hair in braids/knots/pineapples....I use a silk pillowcase but every morning I wake up and the back of my head is a clump of hair. I'd say my hair is some sort of 3A/3B combo in the back, a mixture of small ringlets and more s-shaped curls and I'm not sure how to somehow separate it while sleeping? Or keep it from turning into a huge knot? I've tried a silk sleeping cap but it always falls off in my sleep as I toss and turn all night. Is there anything I can do? I am feeling like I am better off shaving off my hair than struggling to untangle this huge knot every day (and brushing my hair hurts bad - sensitive scalp woes)
