My present mattress, a Tempurepedic, is killing me. I am in my ninth year with Parkinson's disease and I am 5'7, 275lbs. My husband is 6'2, 240 pounds.
When I first got the tempurepedic, I loved it. I was having trouble with bulging discs and bursitis of the hip.
Now as my PD progresses I feel like the mattress is swallowing me. I have great difficulty turning over. I sink into the mattress and can't get myself out.
When I sit on the side of the bed, it sinks in and I am afraid I am going to fall.
What mattress would you recommend?
Thanks so much!!!
Your problem is a common one, experienced by Tempurpedic owners.
The problems are caused by the temperature sensitive memory foam on top.
There isn't a lot of memory foam and what little there is, is supported by a block of high density poly foam, which is not temperature sensitive.
You can eliminate some of your problems, by simply flipping your mattress over.
The underside is firmer and doesn't sink.
Do that tonight and see how it feels.
Chances are, that it'll be too firm to sleep on comfortably, but will provide you with adequate support.
All you need do, is add a latex topper to the flip side of your mattress, and you should be good to go for a number of years more.
The topper to get, is the Ever-Eden 3" soft Vytex Dunlop latex, shown here:
Latex is all natural and, by far, superior to the chemical laden memory foam that's on top of your mattress.

An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
