Hollie, you mentioned getting a foam topper for your bed and, because I didn't want to get "chewed out" for stealing someone's thread, I started this one. I purchased a 4-inch memory foam mattress topper about a month ago and I love it. I have wide-spread pain and this foam topper is wonderful. I don't think I would consider it unles it was at least a 3 inch one. I also purchased one for my handicapped son and he said it was the best gift I could ever have given him. Hope it helps you. BTW, I purchased it from Overstock.com and received it within the week.
