Body Aches & Stiffness


I recently began sleeping on an older twin mattress when a family member moved in and I gave them my queen Simmons Beautyrest. I am a 72-year-old female and have had joint pain and stiffness since switching beds.

I live in Springfield, IL and there are plenty of stores carrying all the name brand mattresses. However, I’m wondering if you can suggest where I might go in this area to get a quality, supportive mattress.

Thank you for your help.

Hi espiritone,

The better options or possibilities I’m aware of in the Springfield, IL area are listed in post #14 here.

Just in case you haven’t read it yet as well … post #1 here and the information it links to will give you all the information, guidelines, and steps you need to make the best possible choices in terms of both suitability, quality, and value and help you avoid the worst ones (including major brands such as Simmons).


Thank you Phoenix. I will check out those outlets you have listed and let you know what I discover.
