I wish I had found this site before buying a Tempurpedic. Now, my health and immune system are compromised for the rest of my life.
We purchased a left over model that had a ripped plastic shipping cover. We were given a VERY generous discount because the mattress cover was dusty where the rips were, as well as it being a left over model.
The very first night, I had a Grand Mal seizure with convulsions so violent that it caused hairline fractures in one of my spine bones. After the seizure, my new neurologist performed a 24 hour EEG & I have no seizure activity. She concluded the "out-gassing" provoked my seizure. A "Provoked Seizure" is not the same as Epilepsy (see below for more info on a "provoked seizure").
The mattress is not comfortable for my husband. He now has constant hip & shoulder pain.
Re: An example of a "Provoked Seizure" is when an alcoholic stops drinking, they sometimes have seizures while they are detoxifying. Those seizures are not Epilepsy, they are provoked by the withdrawal off of alcohol. Sometimes, prescription medications provoke seizures.
