Back pain from mattress
Hi Pete,

I recently stumbled upon your blog post and website and I’m hoping that you can help me. 
We have a Tempur-Pedic mattress and I wake up every single day with horrible lower back pain. 
We have had the mattress several years now and my back pain is getting worse. 
I read on another one of your posts that the memory foam is activated by heat and I wonder if I’m not getting enough support? I run extremely hot while I’m sleeping. Is there a topper that you can recommend? 
My husband loves the mattress and I do not. 
We have a slatted base and he thinks that might be the issue, but I know it’s the mattress. 
I’ve actually been sleeping in our spare bedroom and my back has felt significantly better! 
We spent a ton of money on this bed so, I’m not sure what to do.
Thank you for your help! I look forward to hearing from you.
Best, Sara
Hi Sara,

The difficulty is that your husband loves a mattress that is causing you pain.
Tempurpedic, along with every other mattress upholstered with memory foam, is a sheer waste of money.
Memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever invented.
It’s a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms from your body heat.
This allows you to sink into it, which throws off the natural alignment of the spine.
I don’t know if you recall the smell when it was new, but that acrid odor was the off gassing of the toxic chemicals used to make memory foam…as if being a poor quality product wasn’t bad enough.
The cost of a Tempurpedic is due to all the money they spend on advertising.
Otherwise, it’s a cheaply made mattress…I’m sorry to say.
There’s only two ways around this problem.
1) A new and different mattress…which will require your husband’s ok.
2) Separate bedrooms

A latex topper would only have worked if purchased and used when that mattress was new.

It’s too late for that to be effective now.
Thanks, Pete
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
