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

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.

Off prednisone for over 2 weeks and still having bad withdrawals. Was only on it for a week to treat bronchitis symptoms. How long to sleep well again?

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
