What bed/mattress is ideal? L4-L5-S1 hernia

Started by onepocket pete on 03/06/2021 8:22am

New here on the forum. I'm suffering from back pain due to a herniated disc L4-L5 and a bulge L5-S1. I've had this for 6 years, was a lumberjack but had to change career because of this.

My stats are 5'11 and 230lbs. I need a new mattress/bed. Tried Emma mattress but it was too soft, then switched to just a 5" plain hard foam mattress, but it has aggrevated the pain beyond description. I'm at a state where i can't sit or stand atm. Problem is, i'm a side sleeper.

Anyone has a good recommendation for what kind of mattress to buy?

I wish i could sleep on my back, but i cannot seem to learn how to. Are there any contraption to help with this?
