I am a petite 105 lbs with lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain. I can only sleep on my
sides since to protect my back from bending. Consequently, the sides of my legs and hips
become painful during the night as well.
In the last 4 years I have been buying a new bed every year due to my new bed starts to sag
in a matter of five months and my back pain comes back.
By chance I came across your sight and I believe that one of your mattress can be the answer
to my problem. The doctor told me I need a firm mattress, no pillow top, two sided if at all
possible that keeps its shape.
For what I read, it seems to me that maybe the Cameo mattress in the cushion firm model may be my answer. On the other hand, there is another choice which is Medi-coil Permatuft, cushion firm.
I would be very grateful if you could suggest a mattress for me that would keep its straight shape
at all times but it is not as hard as a rock (I tried to sleep on the floor on a sleeping bag with
some covers on top as a cushion and I end up with tremendous pain all over.
I like the idea of coils since I seem to get hot at night and since I live in Arizona, the summers
are extremely hot.
When I sleep at a hotels\' mattresses, which are firm, I sleep soundly and I get up without pain.
I order a Holiday Inn mattress and with my disappointment, within a short time this bed was
Thank you so much for taking the time to evaluate my email and maybe suggest of a mattress that
might be the best fit for me without considering the price.
When you doctor recommended firm, I'm sure he didn't mean hard. As a side sleeper with sciatica, you will require some surface softness to give with your hip and maintain your natural alignment. Being properly aligned is the key to relieving the pinched nerve that is causing the sciatica pain. The Medi-Coil units were designed to hold people who carry extraordinary weight. The Cameo firm is too firm for you. The Cameo plush is your right choice. It provides the same firm support as the firm model, but with a comfortable sleeping surface. The coil system used in the Cameo is the same as many of the hotel mattresses you've tried. The Cameo, however, is much better made and will last you a very long time. Here is the link to that mattress. I can assure you that it is not a too soft mattress.
