Dr. Hive: best mattress for fibromyalgia?

Recommended Posts

Latex for anything with pain IMO. Her doctor may be able to write a prescription for one. (Depending on insurance or HSA that could be helpful or not.)

Our insurance won't cover something like that. Latex and memory foam so far are near the top of the list. The bed will be a twin.

What helped me personally to sleep better , more than a mattress, has been a CPap machine. But of course you are not asking about that. I have liked a sleep number bed. I tried a temperpedic type mattress and didn't last more than an hour on that thing.

I have to agree with this. We went through mattress after mattress, topper after topper. Sleeping better was the key here, too.

 

I also would not go with tempurpedic. I thought it would be the holy grail, but nope. Far from it.

 

Good luck!

I've got high hopes for the Purple bed.  I thought maybe I would spring for a Purple pillow and see if I thought a whole mattress made of that would help.

A friend who has MS slept tons better with a memory foam topper.

 

I have done really well with a latex mattress from IKEA. (I have chronic, unremitting joint pain and muscle tension due to multiple diagnoses.) I looooooooove my latex mattress.

 

If dh hadn't been opposed, I would have gotten a waterbed with a topper. The one concern with waterbeds, though, is that they do not force the body into a truly supine position--there tends to be a dip at the hips that keeps the body flexed in a mild V. My chiropractor has concerns about that, though I wonder if the pillow top on some waterbeds would alleviate the dip somewhat.
