Re: What Type Of Mattress To Get?
I don't have MS, but I have RSD which is painful and causes sleep disturbance, so a good bed is important. We bought a $1000 mattress a year ago and then we were so disappointed after it arrived and we tried it for a while. It was way too firm, but we couldn't tell that by just trying it in the store for a few minutes. So I called the store a few weeks later and they said that as long as we hadn't damaged it and there were no stains that they would take it back in exchange for another one. We had put a mattress protector on it the minute we received it, so we were fine. We picked out a $1500 mattress (Simmons, I think) that was less firm and we love it! It has different levels of coil support throughout the mattress for ideal support of shoulders, back, hips and feet. And the next to best thing is that we are to never flip it!
You don't have anything to lose by calling the merchant to see if they'll let you exchange it. Give them the true story about your health situation and they may be more willing to work with you.
