I've seen your blog and website and am really hoping you could provide an answer to help me out.
I have been having back, hip, and leg problems recently.
I need to buy a mattress and was looking for a short-term and long-term solution. What I mean by that is right now I can afford a mattress under $1000, but once I can afford it I'd like to try and give my body the best mattress I can get. What would you recommend on a budget and what would you recommend for long term?
Here are my issues: I have L4 and L5 bulging discs and an anular fissure in L4. This has caused lower back tightness and pain as well as significant hip, leg (including sciatica) and knee tightness and pain. I am 6'4" 175 lbs and in my early 30's. I was very active up until recently when my injury has all but put a stop to it. I am a side sleeper.
What kind of mattress do you recommend? Should I get a latex mattress topper? Which type of pillow? Should I continue using my leg pillow?
I was used to "comfy-er" plusher mattress, but I feel like my body is telling me I need something firm.
Thanks so much for your consideration - I look forward to your reply.
Your slender build mitigates in your favor.
We carry a mattress that uses a strong, heavy bonnell coil, which is the perfect support for a man with your disc problems. This mattress is upholstered with latex, which is the best upholstery material available. It has a nice feel on its own, so the only reason to buy a separate latex topper for it, would be to further soften the surface to suite your taste.
The FedEx shipping is a huge part of the savings, if you can handle bringing it in and setting it up yourself. I would suggest getting someone to help you.
Made by The Wolf Company, it's their Adrian mattress...one of the best buys on the market.
You should get many years of good support and comfortable sleep out of it.
Wolf is a very old company, with a single facility in the Midwest...est. 1873, and owned by the same family all this time.
The quality is excellent and the prices are affordable.
Here is a link to that mattress.
