What's wrong with my mattress?

I am a side sleeper and decided to buy a Posturepedic Hybrid Plush mattress. My back feels amazing, but ever since I have had excruciating pain and numbness in my hands and arms (my hands literally turn blue as the girl from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

Mattress Contents:
2" OptiCool 3-Zone Ventilated Gel Memory Foam with PCM and CoreSupport Center
1" Gel Memory Foam
2" SuperSoft Foam

Is this mattress too soft, too firm?

I really appreciate your help!

Definitely sounds like the mattress is too firm. A comfortable mattress that is right for you will support and cushion your pressure points. A mattress that is too firm is a common culprit for feelings of numbness or pain: it can mean the pressure point is not being "cradled" enough by the support layers of the mattress.

I can see that this question is a year old now, so I hope you found a suitable answer, was it a firm mattress like many of the respondents thought?

Hi, it seems that this mattress is too firm for you, I don't know what is the weight of you. But I think you may try a softer mattress, which is better. Hopefully this is helpful.
