Lower Back Pain When I Lay Down

I'm not sure what could be the cause of it, I have no back pain at all during the day, but when I go to bed at night and lay down I feel like screaming because the pain is so bad, It's like I can't move until my back relaxes then I have no problem the right of the night. Is this something I should be worried about?

Also I know this is a spinal forum, but maybe someone has a suggestion on this too. The pain comes and goes, but lately it's been worse than ever with my shoulder. The pain is in the back of the shoulder near the shoulder blade but closer to the joint, I have had weakness in the arm along with crunching and popping. I can be working at the computer and my fingers will suddenly start to tingle. If I lift my arm at the side like I'm going straight out I can't even get halfway with it. My doctor has not tried to do an X-Ray but I doubt he would find anything of use. I want to suggest he has a MRI scheduled but I don't know if he would do it or if I should just see another doctor as it seems my current one is a bit fool headed.

    I had the same pain in my shoulder down my arm on and off but then it continued to get worse. I went to the orthopedic dr who also did not order me an x-ray or MRI. He did not give me any medication, therapy nothing. I could not stand the pain any longer and went to my general practioner who did send me for an MRI of the shoulder. I had two torn ligaments of the rotator cuff and have no memory of any injury that would have caused this. Not sure if this could be what you are experiencing -I had tingling in my fingers and sharp shooting pain too
