Still waking with lower back pain
Comfortable but I get very hot where skin meets mattress. I am using natural fibers and mattress covers to no avail. It may be a personal thing but I may have to return it if things don't improve.
Firstly, I want to say this isn't necessarily a criticism of Sleeping Duck's quality. We decided on this mattress after checking Choice magazine's positive reviews and we needed a new mattress. Initially, though my back was still a bit sore, my sleep was better so I was happy that things were improving. However, 4 months on, they've gone backwards to the point where I'm now experiencing the worst sleep ever, quite literally. My back is so sore, it's now waking me up around 2am. I'm pretty flexible for my age and do some yoga every morning and I'm not overweight, either. I kept telling myself that it couldn't be my brand new Sleeping Duck mattress so I've been trying everything else including staying off the lounge, thinking that might be affecting me. However, we've just returned from our friends' place where we spent the night on a mattress that resulted in me having the best night's sleep for months and no backache whatsoever. I want to reiterate that I'm not saying that Sleeping Duck is necessarily bad but unfortunately for me, it's turned out to be a bad decision. If SD could recommend a course of action, I'd really appreciate it.
