Hi..How do ppl who are on disability for fibro and osteoarth pay 2K for a mattress? From what I read, temperpedic it too hard, latex has to be organic, not synthetic, and then it is pricey. I can't stand the pain and insomnia and I know that a mattress isn't all I need...but it's a start. and a good pillow...but pls recommend a med firm mattress that is heat resistant that doesn't cost thousand dollars that is recommended to help with my conditions. I am female, 5'9 1/2. now 148, usually 140. thx
The mattress is not the only thing to consider. Mattresses that are soft enough for your fibro and too soft to properly support the rest of your body.
The soft padding compresses easily and the mattress isn't soft anymore before the year is up.
The key to comforting you from the fibro is with a soft layer of latex...2" usually...3" if your condition is more severe.
At your size, you don't need an expensive mattress, just one that offers proper support. The latex topper addresses your comfort.
Here are links to a reasonably priced mattress that is substantial and well made...and to the toppers.
This combination sleep system is your best plan of attack.
I really appreciate that. My doctor also said a very expensive bed is not my answer. Alignment and support are. So, get a 3" latex topper and please recommend pillows. I am in so much pain as I write this and I really think that I need to deal with what I sleep upon. Side sleeper. When I am talking about this, what does 'at my size' mean? The severity of my condition is poor.
soft, med, firm topper? soft, med, firm mattress? What about a topper for my existing mattress?
I also want the natural organic latex.
just wanted to know if you considered us having completed communicating or if I will hear back as I am ready to make some changes but was waiting for you answer to some more questions...no wrong answer! Thx.
Body weight is a factor that needs to be taken into consideration when buying a sleep system.
The options are greater for those of average weight and fewer for those who are over-weight.
For the fibro, you will need a 2" soft Talalay topper. You will need this topper as part of your sleep system.
If you buy the topper first, you may be able to use it on your current mattress and possibly put off the purchase of the mattress.
You will be able to use the topper on the new mattress when you buy it, as the toppers last for many years.
sorry for one more question..pillows are so expensive...what can I get if money is an issue but a necessity?
Pillows are expensive because they wear out so quickly and you're forever buying new ones.
We offer latex pillows, which feel the same years from now as they do new.
They are soft and very comfortable, as well as long lasting.
