sore side sleeper needs help 16 Aug 2018 08:33 #1

Hello and thank you in advance for taking the time to help me. I'm 52 years old, diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in neck years ago. For a few years now, I've been waking up with numbness or soreness, usually in my neck, shoulders and hips. I have recently purchased a Nectar and a Purple. Neither has improved my situation.
I now have the Purple laying on top of the Nectar. Not much improvement.

I've read the guides and went to a local store and tested several, 6 inch latex mattress, foam, and a hybrid: wood (plywood I think, but I don't remember) foundation, springs, individually wrapped inner cool, and layer of latex on top of that. Of three, the latter was the most comfortable. I laid on each for about 15 minutes. The foam (3 layers) was about the same price, $3100 to $3500 for a Queen. Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated. I know I'm not getting a good night's sleep. I wake up tired and sore.

Thanks again, and I look forward to your reply.

Hello Phillip,

Thanks for the inquiry, definitely for side sleeping the little bit softer hybrid (latex over coils) or all latex options are going to be the most comfortable. The Cairo and the Amsterdam mattresses are our most popular for side sleepers seeking some pressure relief around that price point.

It's hard to recommend one over the other as they both fulfill very similar criteria despite how radically different the construction is. Both highly elastic and conforming for good support and pressure relief, and both should prove to be very durable in the long haul with no low density polyurethane foams.

Kind regards,
Daniel

My wife is a side sleeper, and the pillow is very important. You need the right pillow to keep your head level with the rest of your spine. I sleep on my back often without a pillow, or on my left side with a pillow.

Anyway, a different kind of suggestion for those with a spinal injury... I wish you well in your search.
