Chronic back pain and insomnia, been that way for years. My current mattress seems to be at least 5 years old and was wondering if it’s time for a new one, and if anyone on here who is a real researcher has suggestions for certain mattresses and box springs (if that matters) that might be a good fit for bigger athletic guys and Back tightness. But a caveat I can’t afford those $2-3k sorts of Temper Pedicure and Sleep Number. Just financially way out of my range.
I found an article that claims to review mattresses just meant for chronic back pain, but these days on Internet I can’t tell if the article is really just guises marketing or someone who gets a percentage of income from people linking to those sites from their article. It says these are back pain specific : Amerisleepas2,Saatva,Helix and Bear. And it specifically says the Bear is for athletes… Is this BS? They’re all in the $1k range which is steep for my budget but living with chronic back tightness and bouts of insomnia is a killer so if I can get a mattress that alleviates some of that I will. Most of my life I just bought the cheapest mattress I could find and threw it on the floor like a spartan and never had a problem. Then after some surgeries that caused secondary back tension I had to pony up and this last mattress cost $1300 or so. But I think it’s days are numbered after at least 5 but maybe 7-8 years. I’m 245-250 pounds unless I do strict Low carb and I get down to 230 which I’m trying to do now as well.
Thanks for any insight.
