I was just wondering if a different mattress would help with the morning stiffness. Mine is horrible and it takes me about an hour to get up and stirring in the morning. I've been thinking about buying a new set because this one is too firm (I think), but don't really have much money to spend if it's not going to help. I talked to a friend of mine today that had been having a lot of morning stiffness (I'm not sure if her's is actually fm though) and she could hardly get up and move in the mornings too. She said when she slept in the spare bedroom, she got up just fine the next morning as if nothing was wrong, so she's started sleeping in there. Certain people around me seem to want to help and give me suggestions of new things to try, but most of them are just well meaning friends with no experience with fm. Have any of you had any luck with a different mattress, and if so is it softer or firmer, pillowtop or traditional, specialty mattress or what? I really appreciate any answers... Thanks Mrs.
