I have chronic pain syndrome and had brought a $2500.00 pillowtop mattress hoping that would help with pain in my joint while sleeping, but it did not. I purchased the 4 inch topper thinking that would help. The topper did help some. If I did not have chronic pain I think this product would be great, but I don't think it would help much for people with chronic pain. I gave this product 3 stars because I feel it is unfair to rate it lower due to my pain, but I did not rate it higher because I do believe the product advertise relief for people with pain.
