I needed a new mattress, and now at a slightly advanced age and having arthritis in my shoulder, I thought I would try a Tempur-Pedic mattress to reduce the pressure on the joint at night. I bought a very high end Tempur-Pedic mattress, the "Cloud" at $3,049!, and have slept on it for about 30 nights - as they recommend giving your body a chance to adjust to the new feel.
I've been waking with an annoying back pain and sluggish feeling, although I do sleep well through the night. I realized this mattress does not give my back enough support and thus, the back pain. My shoulder feels better, but my back is killing me! So, I'm going with a traditional good quality mattress, with a pillow top mattress cover for more cushioning.
I told the sales person "soft on top, but with a firm foundation, and what I got was soft, soft, soft. I'm taking it back.
