Users of the social media site Reddit debated the question, and while the site might not be the first place one goes to for life-changing advice, some of the readers’ answers were just as good as Mom’s.
"A three-inch memory foam mattress pad made my back feel soooooo good," wrote one Reddit reader.

After months of careful shopping and trying out a wide range of mattress sets at various stores, my partner and I thought we had found a queen-size Stearns & Foster model that would be the solution to our nights of crummy sleep.
When my partner and I selected our mattress, we did just that, trying numerous beds before finding one at Macy’s with a foam pillow top that had just the right firmness to support our backs without feeling like a stone slab.
One of the reasons mattresses are so much higher than they were 20 years ago is the rise in popularity of platform beds, which have a strong enough foundation to support a mattress without box springs.
Set a ballpark budget: New mattress and box spring sets can cost from around $500 to more than $5,000, depending on the manufacturer, bed size, special features, and how diligent you are about shopping for deals.
A full-size mattress, which is barely big enough for two small people, is 54 inches wide and 75 inches long, while a queen-size bed is 60 inches wide and 80 inches long.
The manufacturer’s Beautyrest Glover Park Firm Pillowtop (sold at Sears), a Best Buy at $780, topped the Ratings of conventional, innerspring mattresses while its ComforPedic Loft Crestwood Luxury Plush, $1,920, earned the lowest scores among foam models and overall.
Consumer Reports’ latest tests confirm that more coils, fancier fabrics, and frills found on pricier models don’t guarantee a better mattress.
Using a temperature-controller chamber, the tests found three innerspring and three memory-form mattresses that were better at retaining body heat, which should help keep users warm when the weather turns cold without feeling clammy when it’s hot.
And because retailers often change model names, it’s hard to compare models store to store so use Consumer Reports’ performance ratings as a guide.
Consumer Reports’ most recent test of mattresses found models that performed well and cost under $1,000.

Mattress manufactures contractually set minimum prices that they allow retailers to sell their mattresses at, so they either have to price them at that minimum or overprice them and negotiate.
Have a mattress shopping tip of your own? Scoff at this "coil count" business because you rock it out on a foam mattress? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
They have advice directly from a guy who has been part of his family’s mattress business his whole life.
Always ask if the innerspring mattress you’re looking at has edge support to keep the edges firm and keep it comfy for you getting in and out of bed.
If a store is willing to negotiate mattress prices, then they are overpriced, so make sure you get them down a considerable amount.
When was the last time you thought about replacing your mattress? Last month? Last year? Never? Susan and I have been sleeping on the same mattress since we were married—over 17 years ago—and until recently I had never really given it much thought.
This got me thinking, “Hey, my mattress is more than eight years old, maybe I need a new one.” Every time I’d hear one of those commercials, I’d start thinking about it some more.
I said to Susan “I wonder what type of mattress my mom would suggest,” to which she replied “Your mom won’t be sleeping in it.” At the time that made sense, but buying a mattress is unlike buying other items; once you sleep on it you can’t take it back.
At first, it was just an idea, but pretty soon, I found myself walking past the mattress section of the department store “just in case.” Eventually, that comfortable night’s sleep I’d been having was not so comfortable anymore.
How do I know? My son inherited my perfectly fine “old” mattress so guess where Susan and I end up when we are having a really hard time sleeping on the new mattress? You guessed it: in David’s room.

Any doctor who will not listen to the patient and family is not a good doctor! The problem with brain injuries and "brain dead" diagnosis is that the health industry has a monetary interest in quickly declaring death..hence the rush to deny treatment even if it would be barbaric and inhumane to do so.

These cases are vastly different than that of Jahi’s, in that they awakened a very short time after being declared "brain dead".
Our experience, similar to those of Jahi and her family, is that people with severe brain injuries are treated like second class citizens, often being denied the treatment, care, and that their humanity demands.
In the two cases mentioned (Zack Dunlap and Colleen Burns), brain death testing was not done properly; these patients were never truly brain dead.
I hate to even bring this up, but could MICRA (the CA limiting death payouts due to medical errors to $250,000) have anything to do with this case?
