we have tried the sleep number and sent it back as it didn't seem to feel any different than what we sleep on now(like a number bed just not as fancy) we are going to try the temperpidic and hope that this will help both my husband and me. Sleep w/fans for night sweats etc.

I have a "sleep number" mattress and love it. I have been dealing with chronic pain since 1994 and this bed is the most comfortable I have found. It contains an air mattress that is adjustable. I have slept on coil spring mattresses when visiting relatives or during hospital stays and find them very uncomfortable since I am now accustomed to the air mattress.

I have a coil spring mattress with a pillow top. I researched a lot of mattresses before my purchase and I'm happy with the one I bought. I have arthritis in a lot of my joints. The mattress is firm enough for support but soft enough to cushion my sore joints. I like both of these features in a mattress.
