Take a look at all natural latex and at a hybrid latex and spring. You may find that one of that works well for you.

We have a Sleepnumber split-king adjustable bed and love it. It's great to be able to adjust for firmness as well as raise/lower the head and feet.

We decided to "upgrade" to a king size bed last year. We had slept on coil mattresses all of our lifetime. In fact, I was a dealer for several brands of coil mattresses once upon a time (before memory foam). After trying memory foam mattresses (Temperpedic knock offs) at relatives homes and liking them, we decided to purchase a king size (flat) memory foam mattress for ourselves. We got sticker shock!!!! until I went to Costco on-line. We found a memory foam mattress there that was highly rated by users at a price that was affordable. Costco delivered to our door about a week after ordering. That was six months ago and we are 100% happy. The initial impression is that the mattress is very firm, but then you sink down into it and it just sort of cradles your body. We live in a hot summer climate and our mattress is cool to sleep on. When one of us gets up at night, the other is not disturbed by a "giggling" mattress, which was a problem with our coil mattress. We sleep together happily now. One thing to be aware of is that our memory foam mattress had an odor when new that smells like mild chemicals (I didn't find it objectionable, sort of like a new car smell). The information that came with the mattress advises that this is normal and will dissipate after about one week. It did go away after about a week and is odorless now. I kind of miss that new mattress smell now.

Costco sells several types, sizes, flat and adjustable of memory foam mattresses at comparatively reasonable prices. They sell a split king adjustable size too. In our area, they are only available on-line. We highly recommend them.

With regards to Parkinsons, I have a malady that mimics Parkinsons only much milder symptoms. I have had it all my life but the symptoms have worsened in older age (it gives me a good excuse for all my typos and blurry photos ). Famous people who share my disability are former Attorney General Janet Reno and Senator Robert Byrd. It is genetic and there is no known cure at this time. Medications were not helping me (in fact caused very bad side effects) so two years ago my Neurologist recommended I get a dog, of any breed, to lessen stress which causes a flare up and primary motivator of symptoms. And then came Ricky Ricardo! Little did we know what an impact this little guy would make in both our lives! Our lives are now filled with even greater love, laughter, and new experiences. In the past, any kind of competition would send me into a tailspin with severe symptoms, so I was unsure how competing with Ricky would effect me. The results have been astounding! I'm as "cool as a cucumber" in the ring and while training. My Neurologist was right, a dog has a very calming effect in most cases under the most stressful conditions. Ricky and I are inseparable and we depend on and trust each other. He brings calm and peace to my life. This year we will work together to get him certified as a service dog for me. Life is good!

Oh well, that's my story; I've talked too much.

What a great story! I "downsized" to dogs from Horses after being disgnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis about 10 years ago. It's under pretty good control now, but I couldn't go back to riding competitively at this point. My dogs give me the opportunity to enjoy the companionship and partnership of training and competing with an animal while they are MUCH easier on my joints!

What an encouraging and inspiring story. Thank you for sharing! The blessings of dogs are huge, and it's wonderful to read about Popi and Ricky!

My friend also suffers from a disease similar to yours. He was advised to buy an adjustable bed, and I helped him with the search. Could find a suitable bed for this article is ashion Bed Group 4AQ171 S-Cape. My friend really helped to bed, the pain got a little less, so that I can advise this brand.
