That's interesting and very counter-intuitive - I would have thought a flat, very firm bed would suit your situation best. Every time I've slept in a hammock I've woken up with VERY stiff muscles in my back.

What's happening to you re: the stiffened back from the rods and the curve a hammock makes in your back while you sleep?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
