    anyone else hurt MORE sleeping on a memory foam topper? i got one for my birthday and it seems my back/hip pain has been worse in the mornings since i started sleeping on it. is it just a matter of getting used to it? i'm relatively comfortable sleeping on it, and i sleep through the night, but so far it hasn't been what the doctor ordered for morning soreness. everything i know about back pain says to maintain a "neutral spine" and it seems the memory foam doesn't serve this purpose since you sink into it. would love to hear opinions, thoughts on this.

    I got one too and it feels good but my pain is in my shoulders and neck, and I woke during the nite withmy face and behind my ears nomb I got up and pulled it off the bed.
    I just can"t seem to find anything.

    bpm:
    I have put off getting a mattress topper for that reason.
    I know they work for many, but I need a semi-firm support.
    I have always slept on that kind of mattress and find it is the best for my aching, aching back.
