I received my mattress about a month ago. I wanted to make sure it was comfortable for me, due my health problems, prior to reviewing the product. Perhaps this information will help someone else who has pain. I have arthritis as well as another autoimmune disease in the arthritis and lupus family. I was sleeping on a water bed for a number of years and thought what could be more comfortable for someone with pain. I even ordered a 4" memory foam topper for the water bed which helped just a little. As my pain started to accelerate within the past year, I was miserable and would wake up feeling terrible. Finally, I couldn't stand it anymore and decided to order this mattress and hoped it would be the answer. Well, it was!! I am so happy and relieved to sleep comfortably! I still wake with pain at times, but this is when I am having a flare up and I go to bed in pain. But if I am feeling OK when I go to bed, I wake up in the morning without that nagging pain about 70% of the time. Of course I still have flare ups and what it is I have causes chronic pain so nothing is completely foolproof. But I have to say that so far, the mattress has been wonderful! I would like to note that I also have the 4" memory foam topper on top of the mattress, which gives me a total of 7" of memory foam. I haven't tried the mattress without the topper so I can't give an accurate review of just the 3" foam on top of the3' foam top of the 5" base. However, I imagine it would also be quite comfortable, i just didn't try it without the topper because I longed for as much comfort as possible as soon as possible. Now I go to bed without the dread of waking in the middle of the night in pain and tossing and turning so much that I am not rested. And I can sleep on my stomach pain free which I haven't been able to do in about 8 years. I am writing this review because I hope that it might benefit someone who is as desperate as I was for a solution. I also ordered the Milton queen size bed which I am so pleased with. It is beautiful! I am hoping this review is helpful to even just a few out there who are seeking comfort and a good night's rest. Good luck to those and I hope you find the comfort I was so longing to experience. I think I'll order the memory foam pillows now!
