    Mattress and Mattress Pad Suggestions

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm in desperate need of a new mattress as my back pain has become unbearable, keeping me awake all hours of the night. The pain is caused by scoliosis. I also have a lot of pain on my right rib cage when sleeping on that side, there's no redness there but I'm assuming it's from pressure. Up until a couple of months ago I knew I could get some pain relief from lying in bed especially on my right hand side. But ever since this rib cage and lower back pain problem has gotten worse, it seems I'm more uncomfortable in my bed than in my chair. I had tried a 4 inch temperpedic style mattress pad several years ago but found it was way too hard to move around on and ended up returning it.

    I found a gel/foam mattress pad which also includes a fiber filled topper on Amazon, both pads are 2 inches. Just wondering if anyone here has had experience with something like this and if so how do you like it? Is it difficult to move around on? I was thinking that because the foam/gel pad is only 2 inches thick, it may not be that big a problem. Is heat a problem? I understand some of the foam mattresses retain a lot of heat.

    Here's a link to the pad I was talking about

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!
