Middle-Upper Back pain when waking up


I couple of days ago, I woke up to extreme pain in my back but after a few hours it went away.
The next day, same situation.

I did however find myself wake up to me being in the belly down position and also my mattress is really soft.

I can feel the pain in my spine so should replacing my mattress help bring things back to normal or is my spine permanently messed?

I was supposed to go for a jog this morning but the pain was too much to handle.



  • It could very well be that you've strained your back sleeping on your stomach. A flatter pillow may help, if you find yourself sleeping that way often. I, myself, cannot sleep on my stomach, but I've heard it one of the worst positions for your spine.
