Hope this finds you well. :)
Maybe you can help.
I'm 5'7. 100 lbs, hypermobile-- but also degenerative discs C4,5,6,7; L4,5 bulging;
arthritis in joints; sacroiliac joints dislocate frequently; possible neck surgery due to
excess spinal fluid (not sure yet).
Everything pops out basically, but the worst pain is my low back, neck and migraines.
I have a sleep number bed and boy not working!
I'm thin as you can tell (a professional model) but I need a new King size that will not
hurt my bones that are evident, yet also give support...
Can you recommend? I keep looking but I thought for sure the Sleep # bed would work
Thanks so much for your help!
Thank you. Yes. I am well, although at present am sleeping on one of those crappy
hotel mattresses that many people find so wonderful. It isn't.
Let's see if we can get you feeling well.
An air mattress doesn't work for the same reason waterbeds didn't work. The support
you have is provided by displacement. Instead of being held up, you are allowed to sink.
Your problems are too numerous and too severe for that type of mattress. As you've
seen, it just makes matters worse.
You have a duality of problems that affect your spine internally, with your arthritis
externally. Both must be addressed and there isn't one mattress that will do the job
except for an all latex model.
All latex mattresses are expensive and out of most people's price range, so we suggest
a good basic innerspring with a latex topper...which provides much the same kind of
support and comfort.
Best Buy: The Simmons Beautyrest World Class Annapolis Place in luxury firm, and, 3" of soft Talalay Latex on top.
The mattress provides the firm support your spine needs. The latex topper will provide
pressure point relief, muscle relaxation and is soft enough to cushion your arthritis.
Address your neck issue with a pillow. A down pillow is easily molded where you need it.
The key, over all, is alignment of your spine, neck and head....just as you are when
standing upright, so should you be when lying in bed...contouring to your curves and
arches will help you maintain the natural alignment of your body.
