Noisy in San Marcos, December 13, 2013

My husband and I moved to San Marcos in June of 2013 and needed new mattresses...opted for Therapedic...very comfortable and we did not disturb each other when we got up during the night. In September I broke out in hives-never been allergic to anything-after much talking and research my husband and I determined that I had breathed in toxic fumes and they were affecting my autoimmune system...this type of memory foam can be lethal. It is now mid-December and I am still trying to purge my system and rid my body of hives. The dermatologist has been of no help...research and trial and error is the only recourse. I contacted Rooms to Go about two weeks ago...they agreed to honor with a replacement...we started researching their mattress line and all the brand names have comfort tops made with memory foam/visco...I googled mattresses without visco and Carolina Mattress came up; I had also read many horror stories about memory foam and most people tried latex...My husband and I read up on the Carolina Mattresses and and felt it would be the way for us to go and be able to use our store credit. The tapestry mattress and box springs were delivered on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, and the first night we noticed it made noise each time we got in or out of bed...you can sit on the mattress and it makes a noise...we sat and laid on the display mattress in the store and there were no sounds....the sounds are like a deranged whoopee cushion. Also, the first time I laid in the bed I felt like I was moving toward the center - my husband does not feel this sensation, but I do. It would do us no good to contact Rooms to Go, they did not make this mattress besides they have been fair with us in giving us credit for the Therapedic and will not honor another mattress - my husband's profession was Quality and he says we do not have quality anymore. We are leasing an apartment and live on the first floor; I am sure if we had someone living below us our mattress would drive them crazy. We are both 69 and did not buy this mattress without research.
