Pain worst laying down - for bulging/herniated discs

I was wondering if this was common with others....

I have a bulging disc and after sleeping in the night and my pain pills have worn off, I literally am sore sore from laying in any position (side or back) in bed that I have to get out of bed.

Am I alone or this this common?


  • I don't know how common this is but I can tell you I experienced the same thing. At the beggining I felt pain only when sitting. Then pain when sitting and walking. And after a while pain while siting, walking or laying in bed. It all culminated with not being able to sleep at night for more than 2 hours put together and get up of bed so ended up having surgery. Of course before I tried all possible conservative therapies.
    Now in my 8th week of recovery I'm a happy camper. Sleeping like a baby at night and walk with little pain but I am being positive. Wish you all the best!!

    With lumbar problems can be a challenge.
    Over the years I have found the most comfortable position would be on my back with my knees up supported by pillows

    So much so that we purchased N adjustable bed. This way I can raise/lower the head or feet
