    We spend summers in our camper in Maryland and I put a thick air mattress on top of the regular mattress, and every year I look forward to my GIANT COLD BED. (It's right under the a/c vent) I sleep so much better.

    Though it doesn't seem to help - I'm used to a nice heated waterbed. Oh I miss it so badly! I can't rock myself to sleep without my waterbed.

    I think I do better on something that conforms to my body instead of my body having to adjust. Plus there's constant warmth from the bed's heater. (I sleep with an electric blanket now):).

    I have low blood pressure, low heartbeat, cold intolerance that is getting worse (I hate winter!) New thyroid medication might help out with all of that though.
