I just found your site and hope you can help. I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and the beginnings of osteoporosis.
Since 2009 I have been sleeping on a 3 cushion sofa because it's the only place I can sleep without tossing and turning from pain.
I find when I sink my "butt" into the space between the cushions the pressure on my lower back is incredibly relieved. And the foam cushions "give" just enough to take away pain at any other pressure points as well.
When I visit friends and family I end up sleeping on their sofas as well!
So, After 6 years of this I'm totally sick of sleeping on my sofa and would like to buy a comfortable bed but am afraid to spend on a mattress that ends up being miserable and uncomfortable.
The only bed that I have ever found to be fantastic was the air mattress in a hospital bed that adjusted when I moved. I didn't want to be discharged!!!
Please give me some expert advice so I can sleep comfortably on a bed in my bedroom. Look forward to your advise and a good nights sleep.
While not a fan of the "displacement type of support" provided by air mattresses, I am a fan of what works....whatever produces a good night's sleep.
Given that you've been able to try an air mattress and found it good for you, logic then dictates that you go with that.
A word of caution...most of today's air mattresses have a layer of memory foam under the zippered cover.
The memory foam will aggravate your condition....not right away, but before too long.
When you start to feel the discomfort it causes, replace the memory foam with an equally thick layer of soft Talalay latex.
The latex will restore the comfort and last for many years.
