Managing Pain or Discomfort

If you were experiencing aches and pains before you got a Sleep Number® bed it can take some time for your body to recover and achieve the full benefits of proven quality sleep. Whether your pain hasn't improved as much or as fast as you expected or you're experiencing new aches and pains—we want to help in any way we can.

IMPORTANT: Please keep in mind that it is always important to talk to your doctor if you are experiencing chronic pain or having trouble sleeping.

If you're waking up feeling sore or in pain, you may be sleeping at the wrong Sleep Number setting. Even if you've been sleeping at the setting you found in the store, we recommend finding your Sleep Number setting in your bed, because the environment in your room is different than the store and the mattress you purchased may be a different model than the one you tried in the store. 

Please Note

  • Understanding a few basics about proper alignment can help build confidence while you're finding your Sleep Number setting.
  • Once you've found your ideal setting you should notice a difference in pressure relief right away. Within a few nights of sleeping at the right setting, you should notice the pain or discomfort start to lessen or go away. 
  • If you're still not comfortable you can try changing your setting by 5-10 and leaving it there for a few nights. Adjusting a little at a time can help you find the perfect combination of support and pressure relief. You might also need a new pillow. Our pillow quiz can help you choose the right pillow.

It can take time to get used to your new bed; this is why we give you a 100-night in-home trial on your new mattress. We want you to have enough time to feel the full benefits of a better night’s sleep. If you're still not comfortable after 30 nights, please call us, so we can offer support.
