Re: mattress for degenerative disk
Hi! I had posted a few weeks ago asking about the foam mattress toppers; got some good advice from some fellow posters, and went ahead and bought one. It is a 3 inch topper, purchased on-line from an overstock company, and cost around $150. I am so very pleased with it and find I can sleep better (two herniated disc's in lumbar region). I have it on top of my pillow top mattress, and then put a mattress pad on top of the foam topper to hold it in place.
I previously had one of those "egg crate" things (very thin) and found it created an indentation in the middle where I slept.
I have had this about two weeks and love it. Of course I still have pain during the day from my bad disc's, but sleeping is much better since I purchased this topper.
Hope you find one that you are happy with!
