Do memory foams toppers and mattresses cause you to feel hot...?

Yes, ours sleeps a little warm. We have an Isotonic Isocool mattress pad that does a terrific job of moderating it. Unfortunately the particular style we have has been discontinued and going by reviews, the replacement model doesn't do as good a job of cooling. I'd love to have a spare.

Do either have any underlying medical issues...arthritis?? osteoporosis?? In WHICH part of the body...hips, back, legs??

When we were much younger, we always went with Firm mattresses. Until we bought new ones for our last home in FL. Ouch for my me (partner was OK).

Solution: we used 2 extra long Twins, instead of one King. We each have what we need and want. King sheets fit this arrangement perfectly.

Here's a tip to tide you over while shopping for a new mattress so you don't rush into anything - get a 3" thick 4# density foam topper from that big "A" internet site, I got the #1 recommended one, don't get a lesser density model either, you want some strength in it. I had the same problem with my back after my good spring mattress wore out & got one for the interim - the interim now has been 3+ years & it still is going strong but I wouldn't count on it lasting longer than 4, but who knows?

This will give you time anyway to shop around & not rush into a buy because of back pain. The big, & only imo, downside to this is the smell when it first arrives - you would be well advised to open it in a garage type area, it really reeked in my apt for several days. I bought this as a stop-gap & have been happily surprised at the comfort/cost/longetivity.

I remember ending up at Chas Rogers & Brooklyn Bedding (which is in AZ!) & also natural latex mattresses, Scott Jordan was recommended for those, but I am still content with my cheap "stop-gap" over my old mattress for the duration.

I feared this since I run hot but I haven't noticed it at all, ymmv.


....BTW if you didn't know, most of the mattresses in the US are made by the same 2-3 companies despite the different brand names, & they change the model names of the same mattress for each retail outlet they serve making it impossible to comparison shop, extremely confusing. The "No Flip Over" models of traditional spring mattresses that dominate now have a shorter lifespan because of this cheaper construction too.

I could be wrong but your mattress sounds about the same age as my spare bed--long in the tooth. A few years ago I could not for the life of me find a double pillow sided spring mattress, anywhere. Although new ones may exist, they are not common like before, by a long shot.

Same here. Our Tempur Pedic is 10 years old and still comfortable.

To the OP, the usual reason for waking up with aches is a worn out mattress.

I have a platform bed with slats and 4 inch resilient foam mattress. Yes..4 inch mattress.

Have it for going on 6 years now and have to say it beats a box spring/mattress combination for me.

anybody have a type they love ?
I have a king size Tempur-Pedic mattress which is about 8 years old. I absolutely love it, but the one I have predates the ones now made that do not hold the heat like mine does so I have to use an additional cover over it in the summer because it holds so much heat. I got so used to this mattress that sleeping on any other is very difficult for me. Call me crazy if you want, but I actually own a travel Tempur-Pedic mattress that rolls up into it's own rolling carry case that I take with me on vacations.
