Can't afford a good new firm mattress - what can I do to the mattress to solve back problems?
We sleep on those ergonomic pillows. But our queen size bed is too soft and causes me agony upon awakening in the morning.

What can I do with my present mattress to make it firmer? Any suggestions would help right now..

I don't seem to have that firm a mattress but i used to get back problems as well.

ever seen those infomercials with those pillows you put in between your legs and you sleep in the fetal position? well the purpose of this is to align your spine and make sure you aren't doing anything your back doesn't like while sleeping.

The infomercial just poses the idea you don't even need to get the pillow, just sleep in the fetal position with your legs together or in between something (a regular pillow/ blanket). i noticed a major difference in my back pain even the day after and a week later it was gone. now i just sleep flat on my back.

Shlakov beat me to my suggestion. It will give some additional support & firmness. If the mattress is sagging in places, it will still be a teeny bit "lumpy" (don't know a better way to describe), but it will be a little better anyway.

You will probably want to staple a piece of plastic or poly paper to it to keep your mattress from getting slivers though.

I have always been told to flip your mattress every 6 months or so. Helps keep the firmness for a long time and keeps you from having to buy a new one for a few years.

I was going to suggest the same thing as Shlakov (heh heh liking that nickname.)

A sheet of plywood between mattress and base is a good option. Regularly turning your mattress is another good option.

Remember to replace your bed every 10 years or so. If you're finding that you're getting back pain it's time to seriously start thinking about replacing it. I know they're expensive, but it's better than chronic pain, lack of sleep etc.

My parents used to put thin sheets of plywood under their mattress but above the box spring to get extra life out of it. Worth a shot.

Since you can't afford a new mattress, have you thought about buying a mattress topper for your current mattress? There are some really affordable memory foam ones available at http://www.lastingimpressionsfoam.com/categories/Memory-Foam-Toppers/

Plus, I've heard that memory foam is good for back problems.
