Over the course of the last year I have been getting worsening pain at night. What happens is I fall asleep and wake up in severe pain. I try to roll over but I start to cry because it hurts so much to roll over and get out of bed. Rolling over is the worst. The pain is in my lower back. I am so exhausted. I do have a long history of back pain and had a microdiscectomy (L5-S1) 18 months ago, but never pain at night like this. The pain slowly dissipates during the day though never goes away and is worse in certain positions. I have an MRI scheduled for April 29 and will see my ortho pedist on May 6. I just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this or if there are any questions I should be asking my doctor about this.
