What are the symptoms of sleeping on a bad mattress?

Besides : Back pain? A "bad mattress" is in the back of the sleeper. If you are getting non-restorative sleep; waking frequently; have neck and back pain, that's a "bad mattress" for you. One size does not fit all. Good sleep hygeine is also important and cannot be underestimated, either. ...Read more

Good ?: I have had a bad back ; put up with an l5-s1 disk ; leg pain 4 about 7 years . Had a lami in 1982 ; have had no trouble since. During my horrible 7 years i found a firm mattress best. However after performing about 500+ laminectomy's i found every patient was different in their choice of mattresses, some even preferred water beds. B 4 u spend $ try one out. Many places allow u 2 use 4 a while @hom. ...Read more

Sleeping on a box spring, can't buy mattress, back hurts with knots, how can I fix this? Is there permanent damage from a bad bed?

Sleeping on a box spring, can't buy mattress, back hurts with knots, how can I fix this? Is there permanent damage from a bad bed?

No: Box spring just lifts mattress off of floor. If it feels lumpy to you some of the insulating material may have deteriorated. You may be feeling the springs. If you have some extra blankets toss them on top of the box spring as physical insulation. Hold out if you can for the spring sales. ...Read more

Excessive night sweats, bad sleep, back pain since 2 weeks. Can this be due to my new foam mattress and using two blankets as the room is quite cold?

Excessive night sweats, bad sleep, back pain since 2 weeks. Can this be due to my new foam mattress and using two blankets as the room is quite cold?

Not necessarily: As a mattress change can affect your sleep and cause back pain, but less likely night sweats. Some mattress/sheet combos do not breath well, so I can't say it's impossible that it's all related to the mattress/blanket combo. But I would try to switch over to a lightweight cotton(or other natural) fiber blanket and see how you feel. Otherwise, seek an in-person eval for other issues at hand. ...Read more

Something else: I don't think what you're experiencing has anything to do with the short course of prednisone. Consider looking in other areas to find the cause. Hope this helps! ...Read more
