    Memory foam mattress....worth it?

    Has anyone made the switch to memory foam mattress (i.e. Temperpedic)? Was it worth it?
    In the last couple years, i have serious shoulder, hip and back pain that makes it difficult to sleep. LET'S HEAR YOU!

    I'm interested in giving one a try, now that they have ones that are supposed to be much cooler. We had a memory foam mattress topper for a while, and it was awesomely comfy, but man, did we ever sweat at night.

    I was a water bed guy for years. Unbaffled so I could put the proper motion in the ocean. It was killing my back though and my chiropractor would berate me every time I went. We went Tempurpedic and both of us really like it. Lot more comfortable to sleep on. But if I sleep in too long on Sunday I still do get a little sore. I hated the Tempurpedic pillows. One thing I did notice with the one we got though is they can be a little cold when you first get in. It's like the air in our drafty old house goes right through it. After a few minutes everything is better. Probably also why I don't find ours to be too warm. My brother has an upgraded model and complains the thing gets too damn hot.

    With all of the back surgeries I've had this past year--I got a memory foam mattress.
    It makes a world if difference. I got the thickest one possible. Feels like I'm sleeping on a cloud!!!
    I still like to have a few pillows under my knees, but the mattress is top-notch.
    The heavier parts of your body, obviously sink in more, and makes the rest feel like you're floating.

    I do get better sleep with it--and that's the whole objective.
    I highly recommend getting one.

    We have a Sleep Number, and it made all those complaints go away, Shannon. My only complaint is that my wife keeps her side practically deflated, so my side leans into it.

    I tried one out in a store recently. Absolutely loved it. But they're ridiculously pricey here for the good ones. I've got the cheaper mattress topper now. It's definitely an improvement on a sprung mattress, but it's not as good as the real deal.

    Couldn't more!!

    I had a mid-back pain for years (water bed sleeper) after going through my chemo. I would have to sit in a chair with a back massaging thing every morning for 15 mins before getting into the shower and starting my day. I stayed at a Raddisson hotel which had the beds in the suites. The next morning, the pain was gone! I slept in it a 2nd night, and again, zero back pain. Went home to the waterbed, INSTANT back pain the next day!

    I went and bought a sleep number bed, and never looked back! When I moved out, I got a California King Sized waterbed frame from my parents, so I got the Cali King waterbed replacement mattress. Since I'm 6'1" and my gf is 5'10", its wonderful that its a Cali King. Also, she keeps hers at 60 and I'm at 35, and that's the major advantage to a TempurPedic. As for cold/warm... I have a heated mattress pad on it too

    Worth every penny of the $2500 I spend on it
