A Good Nights Sleep.
« on: February 11, 2007, 07:21:23 AM »

Something changed after back surgery 19 months ago (on so many levels) but for the purposes of this poll we'll stick to sleep. Two years prior to surgery we gave up the 70's water bed in lieu of a trad. box spring & mattress VERY FIRM (Approx. $2000), everything was groovy...back surgery...now I wake up every morning so stiff I can barely move, 500 days without a good nights sleep, once I stretch for 5 minutes I can at least bend over to lift up the toilet seat (just 1 reason why I've stayed married for 23 years).

I finally have reached the "point", you know that point, so I'm wondering, help me out here, I'm really leaning to the sleep number bed, slept in a few for about 1/2 an hour yesterday, it felt great, I wasn't stiff when I got up, yes I get stiff in my bed if I lay down for even a half of an hour, irks me 'cuz I passed on a sleep number bed when we were shopping beds 4 years ago, another 2-3 grand.

I'm interested in the pros and cons, especially if you have a non traditional type of set up.

Have you had an injury?

Shoot maybe they left a sponge in me I dunno.

Thank You.

We have a sleep number bed.

Karen loves it.  I'm not so sure.  We too, had a waterbed for years, I miss it.
Forever, I could have slept on the rocks in your poll, and almost chose that one.  But lately I'm having trouble even on the Select Comfort.  Not so much pain, but I just don't find it comfortable.

I'm not much help on your difficulty, but as Karen's proxy I will endorse the Sleep Number bed.

well, this may or may not help you , but for $200-$300  have you thought of trying a memory foam mattress topper?

Have you?

I have been so tempted.  I just haven't broken down.  They look like a great idea.

Yeah I actually have one on our bed now, lol, the problem is it's only about 3 1/2 inches thick, I compress it right down to the mattress.

You're more help than you could imagine, what is your sleep number? They set it for me yesterday at 40, and I played with it and got comfortable at about 20.

Sorry I should have included that in the beginning.

But I was stiff and hadn't had my cuppa yet.  Sad

See, that's the thing.  I (while I can physically feel a difference) can't tell.
I followed there instructions, and it landed about 65, when my back started to sink.  But I've run it up and down the dial, and it doesn't make a difference in how I sleep.

Too much booze, snoring, and sleep apnea.  Oh, and an 8 y/o whose sole purpose in life, apparently is to rob us of what opportunity there is to attempt sleep. Grin

We tried one of those a while back. The only difference it made for us was the fact that the mother*fudge*er didn't breathe for *feces* and I ended up sweaty by 1:00 am every single night. I have the same problem with the memory foam pillows we're using right now.

we have a sleep number. have had it for about 6 months and we too had a waterbed for over 20 years. we shopped for mattresses for literally 1 1/2 years. couldn't agree on a conventional mattress no matter what. the sleep number was our saving grace.
we got a king size with the pillow top, not cheap but very comfy.

i'm a 75
she's a 50
see why we couldn't agree on a mattress  Grin

so if I may ask ... to you sleep # folks...


how much DO they cost,  how much warranty is there,  and  is there like a sharp divide in the middle of the bed or is it a smooth transition ?
