hi everyone,

I am a new member and have been suffering from back pain from around July last year and would be glad of some advice.

I am usually fine throughout the day and would have little or no pain but when I go to bed it is a different story. I am fine for the first few hours but would usually awaken around 5 or 6 in the morning with back pain. It tends to be around the middle and top of my back usually and around the spine rather than the lower back. No matter what way I seem to sleep or turn it does not really relieve the pain. When I get up and move about the pain goes away after about five or ten minutes.

I have been seeing a chiropractor since September and have changed my mattress thinking that it was that but it has not helped. I do not do any exercise which I am guessing is not good for my back either.

I am male and am 30 years old. I guess I am looking for some advice as I want to get back to getting good nights sleep and cannot understand why this pain is only happening at night!!!

Please help.

Thank you

    Sorry about your nighttime pain.

    I have no idea about the cause, since I am not a doc or in medical field..or evn understand my own stuff.

    It seem since you have been in pain since July, it might be time to see a medical doc to get your spine checked out.

    Hopefully, you will find answers and pain relief soon.

    Keep in touch!

  • Hi eagle 1981 :H ,

    Welcome aboard! Sorry about your unwanted "wake up call (|: ". I agree with Savage and Jenny. Pain that has gone on that long, especially that disrupts one's sleep should be investigated. Your body is not getting the proper kind of rest it needs if your sleep is interrupted on a continuous basis. That is the way our bodies REALLY heal ... when we are in that deep sleep mode. This, according to my pain management doctor and staff, but I have always felt this way too. Give yourself some peace of mind. Maybe time to seek an opinion your medical doctor.

    Again, welcome to the forum. Please stop back and let us know what you find out and how you are doing. Gerat website with lots of great people. I am very glad I found!
