Does the type of mattress you sleep on affect your joints/chronic pain? Getting a new bed this year and both me and him have hEDS.

      absolutely!! i have nightly hip and shoulder subluxations even with my memory foam mattress, but when i’m sleeping on a regular mattress i find that i may have full dislocations and/or many more subluxations a night. definitely recommend memory foam mattress and pillow!!

      Yes! My hip would dislocate when I slept so I got a memory foam mattress and it helped so much! It shapes around your joints so there’s much less pressure than a traditional bed

      Yes omg. I need softer mattresses because firm ones destroy my shoulders and hips

      Definitely. My mom has Fibromyalgia and I have EDS,AMPS, & Arthritis. My mom has had such a hard time finding a mattress that doesn’t hurt her pressure points and I have had a hard time with my back on hard beds, but my new bed I have had issues with it being so soft that I’ve subluxed/sprained my ankle by trying to push myself up to adjust and my wrist by landing wrong on the bed. That being said though I still love my bed (It’s a purple 3, my mom has the 4) because I have minimal pain when not injuring myself.

      I thought I'd hate the feel of it, but memory foam mattresses have been the best on my back and hips that I have found so far.
