I came across this searching on Google to find a mattress that is soft - very soft - pillow soft! I have Fibromyalgia, since I was 20 - I am not 55 and since an almost deadly accident I have had 5 spinal surgeries (2 cervical (neck) and 2 lumbar (back)
I live in constant debilitating pain - over all pain - it feels like it penetrates into my tissues and muscles and also my skin hurts. I could go into much more detail to describe why I need a mattress that is super soft but really bottom line is that it is crucial that I find something that will work!
My husband has had 5 low back surgeries refusing his lower spine because he was born with spondylothesis - he had his first surgery when he was 25yrs. ( he is 56) old and has since been afflicted with constant debilitating pain. - we married in January 2002 and my accident happened in April 2002 - not very fun for newly married couple.
Anyway to get back to my issue - we both need something soft -- hard mattresses just add more pain! We bought mattresses from Amazon with great hopes that they would be just the mattress we needed - for some reason you had to buy 2?? Anyway, we gave one to our son & daughter-in-law. The mattress was memory foam - supposed to be just like a Tempur-Pedic - if so then that is absolutely NOT the mattress for us - it is HARD!
I sleep on several toppers - a lamb's wool topper that was supposed to be perfect if you have Fibromyalia, a feather topper, a memory foam topper, a Simmons topper that is supposed to be good if your mattress is shot - and lastly an egg crate, It is soooo frustrating to keep adding toppers that may help just a bit but in the long run - I still wake feeling like I was hit by a freight train - my husband "fluffs" the toppers each night to make my landing as soft as possible - despite is efforts, it still does not feel SOFT!
I need HELP please! If anyone out there feels what I do and needs or has found that REALLY SOFT mattress - PLEASE let me know - I will be eternally grateful!
I am looking for a mattress that is soft not just on top or a soft topper but soft down deep - seems impossible but something soft but that has some support - i don't necessarily want to fall in and sink to the bottom but I would like to feel it very soft and pillowy. In my mind I think it would feel really nice to have some kind of mattress top that is filled with warm gel that you would gently sink into and that cradle you and not put any pressure on your body at all. Well, I can dream - right?? I wish someone would invent something like this for all of us who suffer with Fibromyalgia.
I'll be checking back to see if anyone has a solution - thanks much and God bless!
