I have mild sleep apnea and use a machine, primarily to avoid him from poking me and waking me up.
I work at home but have learned not to sit all day. I have exercises from egoscue to improve aligning the spine
I will most definitely be purchasing a mattress and topper the end of this month.
I just noticed you are in the US, so calling you is not a problem. For some reason I thought you were in Canada.
I have every intention of buying from you but I would like to be able to research what you suggest.
My last mattress set was a Beautyrest Recharge Shakespeare LXP.
A word about my spine.
Your Beautyrest is Plush, not Firm.
The support is inadequate for someone with disc damage.
Let me simplify this for you.
There are, essentially, two parts to your body...the inside and the outside.
The same is, basically, true of a mattress.
The inside of the mattress needs to be firm to support the inside of your body, the spine.
The outside of the mattress needs to be plush to cushion and comfort the outside of your body.
This combination is what every body needs to sleep well.
Your mattress is too soft on the inside.
What I recommend for you is similarly made to the Simmons Beautyrest.
Both use a pre-compressed individually pocketed coil unit.
This is ideal for maintaining the spine’s natural alignment...which key to relieving chronic back pain.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses use the same coil system.
But, the coils are much stronger and there are more of them.
What’s more, the upholstery material is far superior...remaining like new for many years.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush is what we sleep on at home.
We, my wife and I, are both heavier than the two of you.
I have many back problems...herniated, bulging and degenerative discs.
I sleep and wake without pain.
Our mattress is now 4 years old and still in like new condition.
This is the mattress I recommend for you.
This mattress comes with white glove delivery, which includes set up and removal of your old mattress.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
I also suggest you get, what is called, bed risers.
They are available on line, but less expensive at Big Lots.
Placed under the back legs of your bed frame, it provides a tilt that will make breathing easier. Once in place, you should be able to sleep without a cpap machine...and without getting poked. They are usually sold in sets of four, for only a few dollars.
As far as the mattress is concerned, you could go with a Simmons Beautyrest/Latex Topper combination.
That would be the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Gibson Grove Luxury Firm Mattress
And, a Pure Bliss 2” Plush Natural Talalay Latex Topper.
This mattress also comes with white glove delivery, set up and removal.
The topper arrives via UPS.
Again, delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
Our fitted sheet style mattress protector is designed to be undetectable under your fitted sheet. First, we started with an incredibly soft 100% GOTS certified organic cotton jersey sleeping surface.
