I am 42 and suffer from a sports hernia and hip joint issue.
I have a weakened core and suffer lower back pain if my core is not supported properly.
I sleep on my side/tummy.
I cannot have a bed that allows my core to sink, and it can't be too hard that my hips feel pressure.
I am 35 lbs over weight, that seems to remain consistent no matter what I do!
I have been sleeping on an Endy mattress for 2.5 years and hate it.
I have more pain now than ever and I can hardly get out of the bed in the morning because of it.
I thought my injury was just getting worse until last week when I stayed at holiday inn express for 3 nights and quickly realized I had no pain in the morning. Since being back home, I can hardly walk.
Before Endy we had a Tempur-Pedic which also caused me crippling pain.
Hubby sleeps back/side and has had upper back and neck pain ever since we got this stupid bed.
Can you suggest a bed for us?
An individually pocketed coil unit is designed to maintain the natural alignment of the spine, which is the best you can do to relieve pain from disc related back problems.
The worst you can do is buy any mattress upholstered with memory foam.
Memory foam softens as it warms from your body heat, allowing you to sink, which throws off your spine's alignment. Any mattress upholstered with memory foam will make any back problems worse.
That hotel mattress used an individually pocketed coil and no memory foam.
We specialize in mattresses that have no memory foam in them.
You have a couple of options at different price points.
I'm recommending the Wolf Brolynn Old Fashioned Two Sided Mattress.
You’ll what that in the choice of “Plush” for the surface comfort you need.

This mattress uses an individually pocketed coil, which maintains the natural alignment of the body & spine.
This type of support is what will relieve your back pain.
The plush upholstery is natural, plant based polyurethane foam.
It’s comfortable without being overly soft by anyone’s standards.
There is no memory foam in this mattress.
Memory foam wears quickly, sleeps hot, and off gasses the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made….which is why we don’t sell mattresses that have any memory foam in them.
The coil unit is quite firm, using heavy gauge double tempered steel.
So, if you’d like to further soften the surface a bit more, should you find it to be not soft enough to suit your needs, you’ll be able to add a softer mattress topper without negating the underlying firm support…which should still be ok with the Mrs.
