Or better yet, let's talk RESTFUL sleep and the fact that I have been getting next to none! Why does it seem like things made "today" are made on purpose to fail quickly? Why are appliances, mattresses and etc NOT like they were when are parents were young and lasted 20 years or more? Case in point: John and I have been married for less than 14 years and we just purchased our 4th set. Doesn't that seem ridiculous? Ok, well if I am perfectly honest we had 5, but I returned that one after 24 hours. It felt like we were sleeping on concrete!
I'm starting to feel like the princess and the pea. But this is not just a comfort issue, it's a construction issue as well! The other three, have all had body impressions so deep that you can't stand it. One had body impressions with NO pillow top! The one we have now is a "plush" and the springs are literally bulging against the side of the mattress! Seems ridiculous to me that it would do this after 3 years.
I am waking up with such shoulder and neck pain that I can't take it. And my hands go numb almost every single night and from what I have read, it seems as though my bed has no support (which is true) and my back is completely out of alignment. Some nights I start out in my bed, move to my daughters room and even move to the couch!! I have scoliosis and it usually never bothers me, but it is now with this terrible mattress.
So I did something radical this time. I didn't just wing it though. I have researched until my eyes were burning for many nights and hours online. I ordered a mattress and two different toppers, of two totally different materials that I have never even touched let alone laid on. I know this seems completely insane but I am at my witts end! I ordered a medium firmness latex mattress, a 3 inch latex topper in "soft" firmness and a 2 inch gel infused memory foam topper. And I am PRAYING this is going to work.
I don't require tons of sleep. Usually 6-7 hours but it needs to be RESTFUL sleep! I would LOVE to know what you all are sleeping on. And if anyone has gone through this agony!
