Since my Micro-D six weeks ago, the quest has been to help my mattress be more accommodating. I did a search on this site and read what I could about mattresses, and I've altered my too-soft mattress by putting a piece of plywood under it. But now it is too firm. I've tried adding a foam topper, and it was still too firm. I tried adding three comforters/bedspreads, and it's still to firm. My question is this: which is worse, a too-soft mattress or a too-firm one? I am having random pains in my backside, and I'm wondering if the firm bed is the cause. Would I be better off removing the plywood and sleeping on my too-soft mattress? How much harm can a too-soft mattress do?
Thanks for any suggestions!
