I am new to here and I have DDD L- 3 thru S-1 and spondylothesis in L-4. Two days ago I got out of bed and could not stand up straight. I spent all morning trying to straighten up only to have the pain so excruciating that I was near tears. I finally made it to my recliner and turned on the heating pad, fell asleep and three hours later I was able to stand. This morning the same thing happened except I could stand 3/4 of the way up. Any idea as to what may be going on?
