  1. mattresses for parkinsons patients

    Roger, Your post was interesting, but I still want to sleep with my husband if at all possible, so I'm looking for a mattress that will fit a queen sized bed. I tried a 3" thick memory foam mattress topper. I have to sit up in bed and lift my butt by putting my weight on my hands and arms and the memory foam was just too thick to offer much support for my hands. So I tried an eggshell crate mattress topper that was half as thick and now I can shift positions but I get pressure pain in my left hip and right shoulder. I wonder if there is a mattress with a solid foundation and soft top?

  4. mattresses for parkinsons patients

    Hello, I have parkinsons and have difficulty sleeping because after a few hours of sleeping on my side I get pain in my hip - sort of pressure point pain. I've heard this is a symptom of Parkinsons. I can't sleep on my back because of sleep apnea and degenerative disk disease. So I have to turn to the other side, which is difficult (I've heard that is a Parkinsons symptom too). My question is have any of your parkinsons sufferers found a mattress that has support, so they can change sides, and still have some softness so they don't get pressure point pain? I appreciate your time.
