Back pain

April 6th, 2012 at 01:51 am

OMG! Who would have thought a bed could cause so much pain. Okay we moved into the new place and was left everything, dining room table, sofa, TVs, a bed etc.
Anyhow since we moved in I have been having back pain. At first I thought because we have been moving things. Well long story short and $400 dollars later, I realized it is the bed.
My copayment for each doctor visit is $50, and now therapy is $50 a visit twice a week. Yikes!

Well I thought could it be the bed? So I slept on the couch and realized I felt better. I ended up buying a topper for $79 and it helped but I was still somewhat sore. So the bf bought a piece of plywood and I almost died. So I ended up back on the couch.

Now the plywood is gone so we will see how tonight goes, but I have never experienced such pain.
Lesson learned, not everything given to you is the best, and choose your beds wisely or you'll end up spending an arm and a leg.
Fingers crossed that the topper does it and we don't have to buy a bed

    I've had terrible back pain, but mine is from a car wreck.

    If you do end up having to buy a new bed, I would do it sooner rather than later, before any long term damage could be done to your back. You never know! And you'll save that money by not having Dr visits and copays!

    If your bed is new, it might have a return/exchange policy. Check into that. Make sure the next bed has a type of trial period, too.

    Thank every one, unfortunately it is not a new bed, it was given to me. But it is in excellent condition. The topper helps for a few hours, I think I need a 2 inch vs. a 1.5 inch one, in addition, to being extra firm. So I'll be exchanging it today. If this doesn't help, I'll sleep on the couch until I get a new bed
