Christina...I can't say that any of us will be able to help with the x-ray images..I wish I had that training! LOL...I think you will have to wait until the Dr. looks at them..
And that's great that you all found that type of mattress on sale!
Nini..I don't have that mattress at all...I just bought the mattress topper at Sam's club...it's 3 inches and it goes on top of my regular mattress..that's all I could afford...It is just the same material as Tempurpedic...so for me...that did the trick!
I do have the real deal pillow though since my issues are cervical so that is crucial for me...It was around $150...and worth every penny.
So...there are options and as Christina said...also sales and knock offs...
I think bursitis is pretty common with a lot of us CP'ers as we aren't as active as the 'regular folk'..LOL..as well as we carry our bodies in a different way when we walk and this can inflame that area as well.
This is why for me...I need to do the stretching every day...as well as I do walking 30-45 minutes a day with my dog...this has actually helped as I am trying to keep all my other muscles strong..
It's really about
trying to find the best options that can help..
Keep us posted Christina!..
