Want to improve the quality of your life? Get a new mattress. When started getting back pain assumed related to age, weekend athlete, working too many hours, lifted something wrong, etc. -- but first question doctor asked - "how old is your mattress?" Apparently life-span is 9-10 years; and common reason for back pain; definitely reason for mine.
New means quality mattress that supports your sleep and back - not cheapest can find that haven't owned before. Great mattress makes huge difference. Follow up buying quality mattresses for kids too -- don't hand down your old one. Love our mattresses, and our backs -- and you should too.
And if you have really old pillows -- those need replacement too. I don't have allergies, but apparently mites, etc. lurk in that pillow -- which further contributes to problems.
