Is the Topper Pad Helpful for Fibromyalgia and are They Hypo-Allergenic

We are often asked about whether our memory foam topper pads are helpful for people with specific types of pain issues. Here’s a question we got about fibromyalgia:


“I am trying to decide whether to purchase the 2″ or 3” memory foam mattress topper. I have fibromyalgia and will be placing the topper on my King Coil mattress and box springs (they are in great shape).

Secondly, are your toppers hypo-allergenic?”


We’ve had a bit of feedback from customers with fibromyalgia, and it has been positive. The few people that have wrote us told us that the pad really did help reduce their aches and pains. Here’s a couple of the email we received from people with fibromyalgia and their feedback on our topper pads:

“Dear Healthy Foundations:

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how

wonderfully the mattress topper works. I’ve been diagnosed with

fibromyalgia for the last six years. I am in pain all the time but

especially when I try to sleep. I’ve not been able to sleep on my side for

years because of tender points on my hips. I received my mattress topper on

Oct. 15 and from the first night I’ve not only slept sounder, I am able to

sleep on my side.

I’ve tried the Cuddle Ewe (and sent it back), different foam egg creates,

and down toppers. Nothing that I’ve tried has made the difference that the

memory foam topper has made. I only wish that I’d heard about the

mattress topper long ago. I’ve purchased a topper for my 81 year old mother

and three other friends are planning on purchasing a memory foam mattress

topper because I’ve told them what a difference the topper

has made in my ability to sleep longer and better; also, because I can get

better rest I have less pain.

If you don’t advertise on “links” for fibromyalgia you sure should. Thanks

again, Sandy B”

“Dave, I did receive the topper, two weeks ago. I have Crohn’s disease and fibromyalgia, I can’t believe the difference. I have finally slept all night. I thank you for checking into the shipping for me. I can’t thank you enough, and will be ordering another for my 81 yr. old mother. thank you so very much again Carol R. P”

Both of these people did use the 2″ pad – so you may be ok with just the 2″ topper. But you might want to try the 3″ if you feel your bed is pretty firm and you are having a lot of pain issues.

As for your second question, our memory foam mattress topper pads are considered hypo-allergenic (no known allergens). But they are a polyurethane product, so they may cause issues for chemically sensitive people.

Our memory foam mattress pads and our memory foam mattress are made with foams that are CertiPUR US certified.  This means you can rest assured that they are:

  • Made without ozone depleters
  • Made without PBDE flame retardants
  • Made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals
  • Made without formaldehyde
  • Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
