It could be a source: Especially. If you feel symptoms after getting out of bed ; otherwise feel better during the rest of your day. A matress eventually will need to be replaced dependent on the quality ; how religious you are about rotating it as well as how heavy you are. Most will function well on average of 7-10 years. How you sleep in terms of position and length of sleep may also play a role.
