Fibromyalgia & How IntelliBed Can Help
Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by chronic and widespread pain, often in (but not limited to) the neck, shoulders, hips, back, and knees.
Other defining symptoms of fibromyalgia are a heightened and painful response to any kind of tactile pressure, as well as fatigue, sleep disturbance, and insomnia.
The condition itself is a bit of a mystery. It can be difficult to diagnose and is often misdiagnosed because the symptoms can be similar to other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Especially painful to fibromyalgia sufferers is that, as of yet, there’s no known cure.
People who suffer from fibromyalgia manage pain via medication and pressure relief to get the deep, healing sleep they need because they are so sensitive to any level of pressure, especially when lying down or sleeping.
Those with fibromyalgia struggle with getting enough restful sleep due to the chronic pain they endure. Because sleep is such an important time for the body to relax and repair itself, it’s important for those with fibromyalgia to do everything they can to ensure the best sleeping conditions possible. The wrong mattress, for example, can contribute to sleepless nights and won’t offer much relief from pain.
When it comes to sleep surfaces, pain relief has everything to do with pressure relief. When a mattress is too soft it doesn’t support your body properly, so you sink into the mattress. This puts added pres-sure on joints, which amplifies pain. A mattress that’s too firm exerts force on sensitive areas of the body, which also causes pain around muscles and joints.
So it’s vital for those with fibromyalgia to choose a mattress that’s designed specifically for both comfort and gentle support that eases pressure. The wrong mattress can not only lead to sleepless nights, but also further aggravate the condition.
What You Don't Know Can Hurt You!
Surprisingly, most mattresses (even expensive and comfortable-feeling beds from major brands) are in effective at relieving pressure, and therefore pain. Digital imaging devices reveal how well different mattresses relieve pressure around the heaviest and most protruding parts of the body (such as hips and shoulders) when lying down. In the following pressure-mapped images, warmer colors represent areas of greatest pressure on the body. Intellibed mattresses clearly reduce pressure better than any of the other leading national mattress brands. This added comfort is a significant advantage for those with fibromyalgia.
When it comes to fibromyalgia and managing the pain, never underestimate the importance of a quality mattress.
