Any suggestions on best mattress for chronic back pain. I bought a reputable one last year but makes my back worse

    Welcome to our online community @2Rathkenny :) Finding the right mattress can be incredibly difficult, especially with the cost of them. It can also be very personal because it depends on how we sleep. Some people will find a firm mattress can cause backpain, others will get backpain with a soft mattress!

    What kind of comfort level is the mattress do you have now? Is it firm, medium firm, soft? 

    Also, does it have memory foam at all?

    We know your current mattress isn't working out, so we know we can rule that kind of mattress out :)

    Also, did where you buy it from have a guarantee? Some mattress sellers have have a 100 or 200 night guarantee, where if you aren't happy you can return it for a full refund. You mentioned you only bought it last year so maybe it's within the sellers guarantee?
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
