I wake up every single day with horrible lower back pain on a Tempur-Pedic mattress.

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
 
VERY IMPORTANT:
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
We recommend our Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector.
