    Mattress that works 4 me

    I bought an Intelli-Gel bed about 15 years ago because it was the only.bed that didn't feel as if it was pushing or putting pressure on some spot on my body!
    I tried laying on at least.6 very high quality beds for varying amounts of time, all put pressure somewhere on my body that increased the fibromyalgia pain. I went past the showroom of Intelli-Gel and stopped because I was totally unfamiliar with the company. I must have talked to the salesman for an hour because he brought up their mattress business with hospitals for patients in extreme pain. This bed is heavy, it is made of gel cubes so air moves through it and keeps the bed cool, that is a plus for me. It also does not put pressure on any part of my body and that was perfect for me.
    This is an expensive purchase but for me turned out to be a great buy. I had given away 5 mattresses before I found this one because after days to months trying a new different bed I felt terrible. The other beds started to made my nights miserable and getting out of bed the worst hour of the day.
