I need your help and advice on a mattress. I'm in need of a Queen size mattress set
for myself I'm overweight at 230 lbs, 5' 9'' and mid 40's. I currently wake up, with
aches and pains on my whole body, from my neck to my toes(neck, shoulders, back,
hips, knees and ankles)! My medical issues include "hold on tight": Shoulder blade
pain, very tight shoulders and neck (probably stress), arthritis pain & problems in my
knee from prior basketball injuries, and back issues (slip disc issues) and sleep apnea.
I currently sleep with a pillow between my legs for my and one either behind my back or
under my stomach.
I have been to so many mattress stores, and I'm just tired of going in and laying on
mattresses for 15min. and really can't get comfortable on them. With all my issues, it
has been suggested to me to get a foam mattress or a fim pillow top. I don't like the foam
mattresses or soft mattresses I feel as if I'm going to sink and makes my back disc slip.
I like firm, but the "mattress shops" say not to get a firm. What should I do? If you could
help suggest the best mattress for me I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
A firm mattress is exactly what is required to support the weight of an overweight
individual, especially one with back problems. The closest you came to good advice
was the firm pillowtop....close, but no cigar. Pillowtops lose their shape quickly, making
any pillowtop a poor choice for value and long term comfort.
Best solution for support and comfort is the Stearns & Foster Heidi in luxury firm,
topped with 2" of soft latex for long lasting comfort.
An adjustable bed base used to elevate the top half of your body will help with the
sleep apnea...or, you could use the c-pap machine...or, a slight foam wedge between
the mattress and boxspring is a whole lot cheaper than an adjustable bed base. If it's
stress, massage for your neck and shoulders. The right pillow is helpful too.
latex topper...2" of Soft Talalay Latex is the most popular, and all you are likely to need.
