I am a 38 year old married woman with a four year old son. I was in a car accident a year ago this past January.
I hurt my neck and shoulders in the accident and have been to physiotherapy and massage therapy but nothing has helped. My husband and I thought a new bed might be the answer so went ahead and got rid of our mattress for a pillow top one. Well ever since I have been so much worse, we have had it for a year now. Not only do I have shoulder and neck pain but its much worse and I have lower and upper back pain too. It's hard to get comfy and I wake hardly being able to move as my whole back, neck and shoulders hurt beyond belief! This is not how I should be at my age. I fear that if I try anything else for my pain it won't get better because its partly the mattress. I am only 110 pounds petite lady so I wonder if may be I am not getting the support I need as I don't sink into the support? We are willing to get another mattress but what you try at the store isn't what you get. Our mattress is still not as we tested at the store. Anyways I have terrible back pain and shoulder pain and need support and help in this. I am lost as to what to do next and it's so depressing to wake every morning in such pain!
Thanks for listening and any advice and help.
