My name is Chris Gentile and I am having severe pain in my shoulders and neck while I sleep. We had an old mattress that started to cause me problems and so we bought a topper, I am not sure what kind but it is somewhat of a memory foam topper. It didn’t help. Then we went and purchased a memory foam mattress on black Friday only to have things be worse. I think bought another mattress topper that was also gel memory foam but had really good reviews and said people were using it to cover mattresses that were too hard so I thought it would help. Well it hasn’t. My shoulders hurt so badly and also my upper back by my neck hurts. I am so frustrated with what type of mattress to get or what to do to get something I can sleep on comfortably all night. I have gone to a chiropractor that has not done anything. I do get massages to get the knots out of my shoulders because they are so bad but that helps for a very short bit.
Most new mattresses use memory foam in them, which fails quickly. We often recommend using a latex topper with a new mattress to keep it from losing it shape, (extending its intended life), as well as providing an unparalleled comfortable sleeping surface.
