I bought a Tempurpedic bed delivered and from the moment they unwrapped it, the odor was sickening and started to effect me with sneezing stuffy nose and head aches. They told me this is normal.
I tried to be patient with it, and did as they asked, walked on it, left heavy objects on it, washed the cover, washed my sheets etc, nothing helped. After 5 months they said ok we'll replace it, because the odor has gone on much longer than it should have. The replacement was much worse than the first one. The next day after delivery I woke up with my throat swollen, my ears hurting, my eyes swollen, my sinuses stuffy, coughing up mucus, massive head ache, I thought wow I've got the flu or something!
I took my dog for an extended walk a couple days later thinking fresh air might do me some good, with in an hour my symptoms were completely gone. It was when I got back home I realized the toxic chemical smell had completely enveloped my house. Walking in the door with the dog it hit me like a smack in the chest, I could feel my lungs fighting to breathe as soon as I walked in. With in 2 hours all my symptoms had returned with a vengeance.
Struggled with it for a few more days, walked on the bed, washed the cover, changed and washed my sheets, opened windows when I was able to, nothing helped except when I left my house for a few hours. I went to see my doctor just in case, to see if I had something else going on, and as before by the time I got to my doctors office almost an hour from home, my symptoms were almost gone. My doctor said my sinuses and throat and ears were inflamed and something was irritating them clearly. TempurPedic agreed there is something in the mattress that's causing this reaction and seemed concerned how sick I am.
That was over a week ago, and now when I go out, the symptoms are not clearing up as well as before and I'm fearing permanent damage to my airways from this toxic nightmare. PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY bed from Tempur-Pedic if you value your health! THIS is NOT normal, despite what they'll tell you, it's NOT normal and it IS dangerous! I should have bought a Saatva bed, its all natural, organic and safe.
I had initially thought Tempur-Pedic was the best, now I know how wrong I was. And I may have paid for that mistake with my health.
My next mattress will come from http://saatvamattress.com and if you care about your health, yours will too!! DO NOT Buy Tempur-Pedic!!!
