Lower Back Pain

After two Back Fusions over the last two years from L2 to S1 my impinged nerve pain has subsided but chronic pain at night when lying down has become a real problem.

When sitting, standing or walking short distances my back is OK, but when I try and go to bed to sleep it aches and aches.

It is predominately into the lower rump section on either side but there is chronic pain in the spinal area if I tense up my lower back.

Any suggestions.


  • Have you ever tried a muscle relaxer or pain relief med to help you sleep better when you lay down? I like Soma which is a muscle relaxer and Tramadol which is a pain relief med. If you go to www.nowhere.com you can actually order both of these and have them shipped to your door overnight. You don't need a prior prescription or health insurance. All I had to do was fill out a short form and the U.S. licensed doctors and pharmacies filled and mailed my prescription.

    I have had low back pain for years in my T3/T4 area from several motor vehicle accidents and I also have pain and get stiff when I lay down too long. These two meds have tremendously helped me.
