A Mattress for Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Scoliosis.

Hi Pete,

I am 76 yrs. old and have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporosis.  I also have severe scoliosis.
Due to several episodes of blood clots, I have been on permanent Coumadin for 24 years and also have a blood filter implanted in the artery below my heart.
In 2006 I bought a Sealy Jacaranda Queen mattress and adjustable queen base/platform with motor.
For the last several years I have been suffering from back, hip, knee and shoulder pain.   
At times I suffer from a pinched nerve in my back.
All the doctors want to operate on my back, but with me on Coumadin and at my age, I feel the risks outweigh the benefits.  
I have found a chiropractor who is really helping my back and hips with stretching maneuvers.
Last week I almost bought a Simmons Beautyrest mattress to go on the base I already own.  
I have since read bad reviews on that mattress and am glad I didn’t buy it.  
I have been told that I need a firm mattress because of my back, but need a soft mattress for my shoulders and hips.  I am confused.  
Also, I’m not a millionaire and can’t afford a mattress that costs thousands of dollars.
To add to all of the above, my son thinks my back problems worsened when I got the adjustable bed.  
Do you have an opinion regarding this, as well?
I need your help and advice.
Thank you, Betty
Hi Betty,
An adjustable bed base is fine for sitting up to watch TV, but for sleeping, the bed needs to be flat in order to maintain your spine’s natural alignment.
The Sealy Jacaranda latex mattress was quite firm and should be ok for your back…but it’s too firm for your other issues. But it is getting old.
While made as a one sided mattress, you can flip that mattress over for more even surface support.
If the mattress has worn, you can flip it over.
The underside should provide all the firmness that your back requires.
Add to that, a 2″ or 3″ soft Talalay Latex topper from either Suite Sleep or Pure Bliss.
Shown here:
The soft latex will relieve the pain of your Fibro, Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis.
Continue with your chiropractor. They do excellent work.
You might ask him about a product called “Bio-Freeze”.
It’s topically applied, providing excellent and almost immediate pain relief.
