Is your mattress old and worn?
Buy a new one - are you torn?
Does your mattress have a lump?
Do you lie there like a bump?
If you lie on your side,
Does your mattress hurt your hide?
So you roll on your back -
but your sleep is not on track.
So you toss and turn some more -
Still no good - you are sore.
So go to the mattress store
with so many choices galore.
So many choices what to do?
The saleman sticks to you like glue.
Lie on this one, lie on that -
but your wallet is so flat.
I could use some help from people who have done the search for the "Prefect Mattress". I don't mean to complain about my soreness on a Fibro forum, but people here probably have some good ideas.
I've developed some soreness. My Dr. works primarily with chronic fatigue and fibro patients. A couple days ago she checked and I had 9/ 18 TPs. So there's probably some kind of sensitization going on. She thought a new mattress might help and I might sleep better.
So ... we went by a mattress store yesterday and had massive sticker shock. With finances being tight, it's kind of a big decision. Have people improved sleep with a new mattress? Any ideas on what to look for? The ones with a layer of foam on top did seem very comfortable.
I know everyone is different so just looking for ideas. Resting on a mattress for 15 min in a store isn't at all the same thing as sleeping on it all night (or all 4 or 5 hrs of it). I know it probably would help - some times when i wake up the first thing I notice is like my shoulder hurts. It's just so expensive. Even if I don't sleep longer, maybe l'd have less soreness?
thanks for any help. Oh geez, this is really corny but I am kinda "sleep deprived in Seattle".
