Traditional memory foam mattresses retain bodily heat very well so they feel much warmer than spring mattresses. However, if you are in a less temperate location or prefer cooler sleeping options, you may wish to opt for a gel-infused foam mattress as it does not hold in as much heat.
What is the right mattress or sleep surface for fibromyalgia sufferers? Surprisingly, it is suggested to some patients that the softest mattress or pillowtop bedding may not be the best in the long run. While a new, very soft mattress may initially feel wonderful to someone with sensitive pressure points, the mattress filling will undoubtedly settle and not be as soft as before. It can become lumpy, hard or uneven and eventually cause as much pain as before. Also, the typical pillowtop bedding may do the same thing, even though pillowtops are advertised as providing an extra soft sleep surface.
Fortuitously, for several days prior, I had been researching mattresses online. I had a small inkling of what they might cost and had found out some interesting facts about mattresses. Most manufacturers of innerspring mattresses get all their springs from the same source. There are only a couple of exceptions. The only differences are in number of springs used and the gauges of the wire used to make the springs. Some manufacturers cover the springs with fancy sounding fabrics to raise the "perceived" value and thus justify charging more for them. Most manufacturers change the name of each model for the different vendors so that the consumer can not easily compare prices between one retailer and the next. All non-innerspring (and some innerspring) mattresses are insanely expensive. None of this gave me much confidence of finding a mattress, but since Bernd was willing and this might be my only chance to do it, we did it.
Viscoelastic mattresses for bed frames. Introduced over twenty years ago these mattresses started out quite pricey and were only in select higher end homes by people who could afford them. Today, there are many brands of viscoelastic mattresses and can be found in a much greater number of homes. Viscoelastic has unique properties in that the mattress is made up of material called visco cells. These cells have a memory and when they sense heat the material conforms around the heat. Your body supplies the heat and the mattress molds around you. This is different than innerspring mattresses in which you lay on top of the mattress. With visco mattresses you actually feel the mattress around you. Coverings for these mattresses can range from fabric, bamboo, cashmere or any number of materials. In recent years some customers have commented that the mattress becomes hot while laying on it. Tempur-Pedic which is a leader in viscolelastic mattresses has since created a more breathable covering to disperse heat. Its not immediately clear if other manufacturers of these mattresses have done the same. Viscoelastic mattresses have been promoted as helping those with bad backs find greater comfort. Tempur-Pedic and Dormia are just a couple of the many brands available.
