BEST MATTRESS FOR RLS

So I'm looking to invest in a new mattress (and base)

I'm sleeping alone so transferring motion to my partner isnt an issue
Staying cool might be nice but not the main goal

Would a fancy vibrating adjustable base be useful ?

I'm considering a medium to firm tempur pedic with base

If money isnt an object, what's good for someone with severe nighttime RLS ???

We had a Tempurpedic for movement - worked great for that, but we did not like it for other things. They do sleep warm, and sex is much more difficult. As a couple, that was problematic.

We know have a part latex one that I like a LOT. I have fibro, so I wanted a bit of snuggle to it, but not sinking in so I couldn't move. The latex has more bounce.

Have never tried an adjustable vibrating one, but that might be nice.

We have an adjustable bed with the vibrator but I never use the vibrator. But the adjustable part is great and the one that we got is a split king. That means that we have a "single" bed but my movements at night do not bother my wife.

We have a firm mattress that I like. When we replace it we plan to get a split King because my movements can wake up my wife.

I just bought a Nectar. It's on the firm side if you are normal weight.

My husband I have a queen size memory foam mattress that was a “mattress in a box." He never feels me get up at night. It was not expensive, we have separate covers. buy one where it can be returned. If you want to pay more, go to a store and both lay down on the mattress so you can see if one getting up bothers the other. and the dual mattress sounds good.

I second the suggestion to go to a mattress store. I went to several. I also did a LOT of mattress research to find out what they had in them, etc.

Good mattresses are expensive so, yes, go to a bed store and try them out.

I feel comfortable in my current bed, and it is a twin. The good mattresses are super expensive and I cannot afford it on a fixed income.

Did you ever get your mattress? The funny thing for me is that 3 years ago my husband and I splurged and got 2 adjustable twin XL beds from a local mattress store where they make the mattresses themselves. Bought them because I was--and still am--going through a lot of back/hip pain. Unfortunately the new bed, even though it was adjustable, never helped my back at all. But when I first started having bad RLS in 2018, I would go sleep in our guest bedroom so I wouldn't bother my husband. In there, we only have a very basic twin bed that's good enough for an occasional guest. What I realized after a while was that my back stopped hurting! And I'm only remembering this now because I am again going through a very bad time with RLS and sleeping in there again--and once again, my back is doing much better on this cheap twin bed.

For me, the mattress doesn't seem to matter at all for RLS: if I sleep, I sleep soundly on the cheap mattress, but if I have RLS, I don't sleep at all in either bed.

Too true. It can make a big difference for backs but no difference for WED/RLS.

I’ve been sold on Tempur-Pedic for a long time. We have a house full now. I picked the most firm one when we finally upgraded to a king. Big mistake. Expensive to do over.
