Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia Pain. Sleep Number Air Mattress?

Joan writes:

Hi Pete,

Thank you so much for your answer. I was beginning to think I was imagining things. It felt so good at the store. Would a sleep number air mattress do the trick? What is a pillowtopectomy?

Would I open the seams of the pillowtop just enough to remove the pillowtop part and insert a sheet of latex? I thought of doing that. I hate to disfigure a “pretty” mattress, but I’m handy with a needle and thread. I know it won’t be easy. Let me know if my hunch is right. I’m so disappointed after spending all that money on this mattress. I can barely stand up in the morning and it takes me a long time to get over the awful pain of lying on that bed. I’m disabled with severe degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I wish my bed was my haven, but unfortunately, it just adds to my pain. Thank you so much for your fast response. All of us are very grateful for your help.

Sincerely, Joan

Hi Joan,
A “pillowtopectomy” is a made up word for a proceedure that has only been performed in theory…or done, but not publicized….kind of like the work of Dr. Frankenstein.
I can hear your mattress now, “Help me”. (couldn’t get that as small as I would have liked)
You will, definitely, want to read up on the horrors of an air mattress before making that expensive mistake…
Get a good quality, basic, firm mattress that will provide the support you need…like this one….The Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini,

And add a 2″ layer of soft latex to make yourself comfortable…a durable comfort that you won’t have to worry about or fuss over to keep it comfortable.

The Natura Greenspring in plush, which has the same coil unit as the Simmons, but is already upholstered with latex….not needing a separate latex topper.
