A Mattress for a Side Sleeper with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Julie writes:
Hello Pete, 
I am in the market for a new mattress. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and I am a side sleeper. My current mattress was about $1500 and it is only 5 years old. 
It sags in the middle on both sides as I continually turn it (can’t flip over). 
I don’t have a lot of money but if I need to spend more than I have, I will, to get a good nights sleep. 
I am a bit overweight, about 180 lbs and only 5’6″.
I am considering purchasing a 14″ memory foam mattress when it goes on sale later this month.
I am sensitive to smells but as long as it dissipates in a week or so I will be fine with that. 
I have no clue if this will be a mattress for me. My current saggy one is a Sealy Posturepedic, something or other. 
I have no idea how many coils it has, but it sure was comfy for the first couple of years. 
It was supposedly a medium-firm mattress but I think now it was more like a plush. 
I generally prefer a medium mattress. I don’t want to feel like I am sleeping on concrete. However, I don’t like the really soft mattresses either. 
Any suggestions? 
Thanks. I hope to hear from you soon. 
Hi Julie,
Memory foam…consisting of 61 different chemicals, some of which are toxic. The bad smell is the off-gassing of those toxic chemicals.
Besides being a dangerous product, it doesn’t work worth a damn…not for long, at any rate….adding insult to injury.
Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms from your body’s heat. It, eventually, loses its support and you sink through it…all before a year has passed.
What’s more, it reflects your body heat back to you, making it very hot to sleep in.
Many memory foam mattress makers have resorted to using gel to mitigate the heat issue. The gel works for a couple/few hours and then the bed gets hot.
Throwing away what little money you have on this junk is not what you want to do, as it is an extremely poor value.
At your size, the mattress you buy need to provide firm support, if it is to last a decent length of time.
It, also, needs to have a soft sleeping surface to be comfortable enough to relieve the pain from your RA.
The mattress I like best for you, contains a pocketed coil unit, which provides firm, but contouring support…which will maintain the natural alignment of your spine.
A pocketed coil will also relieve your pressure points, making it easier to address your RA.
The upholstery is all natural latex, which is, both, extremely and resilient….providing a feeling like you’re floating.
It’s a unique feel and there’s nothing better for relieving the pain of arthritis.
There are two models on this link, which appear to be the same. The Adara model is made of all natural materials...well worth the small difference in price.
All Natural Cotton Cover. All Natural Wool backing as a natural fire retardant. Upholstered with All Natural Latex. All Natural Wool insulator pad for support.
