Three million Americans are affected by fibromyalgia, a condition that causes widespread musculoskeletal pain, as well as fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues. There is no direct cause, but symptoms most often arise after physical trauma, surgery, infection or psychological stress. The condition is also associated with tension headaches, TMJ disorders, IBS, anxiety, and depression. While there is no official cure for fibromyalgia, but quality sleep is one of the ways to alleviate the stress.
According to the Mayo Clinic, quality sleep is among the best ways to live with fibromyalgia. With fatigue as one of the main symptoms of the condition, getting plenty of sleep is essential. However, the combination of pain and sleep loss traps patients in a painful cycle. The pain disrupts sleep while the lack of sleep intensifies the pain.
While practicing good sleep habits like regular sleeping and wake-up times or avoiding caffeine or alcohol helps ease the pain before bed, nothing compares to a properly supportive mattress. Intellibed has customers across the country with fibromyalgia who have found a good night’s rest with the right mattress.
Support & Comfort
For any kind of chronic pain, sleep is an important ingredient to lighten the pain. Intellibed knows that the best sleep comes with the best mattresses, but everyone has different needs and preferences. The constant battle for comfort and support may feel like living in a fairy tale where everything is too soft or too hard. To find the mattress that’s just right for you, focus on a model that distributes your weight evenly. By taking pressure off your shoulders and hips, you’ll find that it’s easier to relax. While memory foam is a popular choice, it can rise in temperature quickly. Instead, a medium density mattress with gel and foam inside gives you support and comfort in one plush package.
The Right Bed
With all these factors in mind, Intellibed has designed a mattress tailored to the needs of those with fibromyalgia, arthritis and chronic pain. The Numea gel mattress lifts the weight off pressure points in your shoulders and hips, offers a Lo-Motion option and combines gel and foam for a strong combination of stability and comfort.
With our Gel Matrix™ Cushioning Matrix, Talalay latex included in the five layers within this mattress, you can finally rest easy. Furthermore, it regulates temperature to help you avoid uncomfortable overheating during the night.
