Hi, I'm new to this site and I've never chatted in a forum before so I hope this goes well. I am a 34 year old female, I've had three children, not currently employed due to health issues. It all fell apart in 2013 when I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Since then it's been one thing or another. Summarized as; psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle tension headaches, myoclonus, and possible problem with the sacro-illiac joint. The current issue thats plaguing me is this restlessness in my lower back. Luckily my kids have been helpful by using their feet and digging into my back like in a kneading motion as a cat would. This buys me time until pharmaceuticals kick in.(tizanadine and/or hydrocodone). It's particularly worse at night but definitely not isolated to nighttime. My upper back is rittled with various sized knots likely from overcompensating. Those last a couple weeks, or until I can get trigger point injections. I wouldn't wish these problems on anyone, but I am looking to see if anyone else has experienced or is experiencing the restlessness in the lower back too. I would really like to know what's causing it, and what works to deal with it. Please let me know. Well wishes
