What is it that causes your lower back to hurt so much in the morning? I have moderate DDD from L4-S1, and do have something going on with the SI joint. Most mornings I can barely move when I get up, have to stretch before even being able to get out of bed. I do have a memory foam topper on my pillow top mattress. This morning was just particularly bad, so the question has yet again arisen in my mind. Is it arthritis?
