For the past year I have been having horrible breathing problems. I would wake up gasping for breath, all day I'd gasp and be unable to catch a full breath. I could not understand what was happening to me. I went to the doctor but he could not find what was wrong. I stopped taking all my medicines thinking I was having a reaction to one of them. Over time it was getting worse. I would just be sitting watching TV and no matter how hard I tried to get a deep breath I just could not fill my lungs. I felt like I was breathing through a straw or something. I was so scared and confused. Finally one day out of desperation, I looked up tempurpedic allergies. I found a site filled with other people's stories about their health issues due to this memory foam that is made with toxic chemicals. I only had a tempurpedic pillow. I took it off my bed and got a new, organic pillow. Today is the 4th day I've slept without that pillow and as of today my breathing is almost completely back to normal. I just went through a year of *** due to that toxic pillow. Please do not buy any tempurpedic foam items! It is not worth it!

  • My wife and I bought a Tempur-Pedic mattress because of all the hype and their claim that it is the most comfortable mattress, yada, yada, yada... Well a year and a half later, this is the most expensive turture implement I have ever bought! We both wake up with aches and pains every day. I can't sleep for more than an hour in the same position before the pain wakes me up and I have to flip over. If you really look at their guarantee it is garbage. Basically you will spend a few hundred dollars to test it out (what it will cost to send back) for 90 days. After that you are on your own. Not worth buying in my opinion.

    I was sold a TEMPUR-PEDIC bed from SLEEP EZZ in Kitchener, ON and when it was delivered the toxic smell was so bad I couldn't even go in my room. We contacted the store and they said it would go away in a few days. Well it didn't and they refused to refund the product. In fact they told me it was all in my head and I was too sensitive. (Nice customer service...insult your customers) They even suggested to spray Febrize on it! Are you kidding me?! So spray more toxic artificial chemicals on to an already chemical wasteland they call a mattress! So after spending $6000 on a mattress I couldn't sleep on the bed, I couldn't sleep in my own room for that matter and it took 7 months for the smell to go away. I contacted the tempur-pedic manufacturer and they said they wouldn't replace it/refund it. They said the only way to get rid of the smell was to sleep on it! Which I did for a few nights but it made me sick! I was pregnant at the time too and can you believe they suggested that a pregnant women sleep on a bed that made her sick! This coming from a company that claims be concerned about customer health! Both Sleep Ezz and Tempur-pedic are all about profits and don't care what they put their customers through. Buyer beware for both Tempur-pedic and Sleep Ezz.

    Here is some more information: Tempur-Pedic mattresses get their distinct supportive properties because of the chemical processes used in manufacturing. People with chemical allergies or sensitivities may be affected by the chemicals in a Tempur-Pedic mattress. Symptoms include disrupted sleep, itching eyes, sneezing, rashes, nausea, headaches or respiratory distress. These symptoms are unlikely to lessen over time, so people with chemical allergies should avoid Tempur-Pedic mattresses. However, people with allergies to dust mites or other common allergens associated with bedding may experience allergy relief with a Tempur-Pedic mattress because it is resistant to allergens

    Certain people have reactions to tempur material but not everyone. I LOVE my tempur-pedic pillow.
