Just found this site and I am so happy to confirm I am not going completely insane! For the past 6 months I have been experiencing very sharp pain in my lower back and right hip. It wakes me up at night when I turn over in my sleep, My body is so rigid I have real trouble getting out of bed or if I have been sitting for a while. My only relief is to walk around all day, but as I get so little sleep I am exhausted during the day. I just dread going to bed.
My Dr has prescribed all sorts of medication and nothing works, he is finally sending me to a specialist but the appt is not until February. I should live so long!
