Back pain that wakes me up at night and is worse when I am resting or sitting???

I have no idea about this one.  The pain is on the right hand side of my lower back just below waist level.  It seems to get worse at night and often wakes me up during the night as an intense constant aching pain that doesn't seem t improve if I change position.  It tends to improve during the day when I am moving around (but is still there as a dull ache).   I had sciatica with all 4 of my pregnancies (the 3rd and 4th were the worst) but this doesn't feel anything like that.  With my sciatic pain vacuuming kills me but I vacuumed yes

Back pain that wakes me up at night and is worse when I am resting or sitting???

Hi there! Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural issues, joint inflammation/ degeneration, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments, inflammations, spinal causes such as degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile you could take some tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS and see of these seem to help. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Upper-mid back pain since years.. .

Hello and Welcome to the Back and Neck Community. I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. No one should have to experience uncontrolled, sleep disruptive pain. Do you have a career that demands a lot of sitting, such as computers- or a career that requires physical labor - anything that puts stress and stain on your mid thorax region? Osteophytes is the medical term for bone spurs - and they indeed can cause pain. I know - I have them. However your pain may be more soft tissue pain, such as muscles and the supporting structures of your spine. Just because the actual autonomy of your spine appears healthy doesn't mean you can't have extreme back pain. There are many muscles that connect to the spine to help support the upright posture of the spine and move it. The main muscles involved in maintaining thoracic spine position, strength and integrity are the Lats (Latissimus group), Traps (Trapezius(s) and the Rhomboids - there are more but all function together. In addition to muscles we have Ligaments that connect bone to bone and Tendons that attach muscle to bone. The back is very complex - an pain can often be just as complex. PCP tend to look for answers to pain in areas where they can "see" it. If you have a disc disease they can point that out on an MRI and account for your pain. You can't actually "see" soft tissue pain. Have you consulted a D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy). If your PCP is unwilling to go further to DX (diagnosis) your pain a DO may be of great help. Osteopathy is not a set of techniques; rather it is a philosophy. It's one that saved and changed my life. A DO found the reason I had/have pain and treated it when no one else could. If you chose not to see a DO or there is not one in your area just don't give up your search for the reason to your pain. It's way too early to quit. In the meantime ask your PCP about a muscle relaxant at bedtime, a therapeutic dose of NSAIDs (Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) or anything else he thinks might help you rest until a DX is found. You require sleep to assist your body in the healing process and to improve functioning. When we can't sleep our pain (and all that goes with it)  become worse which inhibits our sleep  - which makes the pain worse - which inhibits or sleep - round and round we go, it becomes a vicious cycle.   I often use a product called Therma-Care. There are several selection - I buy the one for the back. It can go any where in your back area and provides penetrating heat for 12 hours. No smelly rubs. I was suspicious but pleasantly surprised - it helps ease my back pain and I rest better. I think it may be  worth a try. Please keep searching for answers to your pain - and let us know how you are doing. Other members should stop by to offer suggestions - and Phil knows the anatomy of the spine extremely well. I'll look forward to hearing from you. Best Wishes, ~Tuck

Lower Back Pain that only gets bad when sitting or laying down

It sounds like what you're describing is chronic soft tissue injuries, which can become worse over time as poor circulation. Given the severity of your pain and the functional limitations it's now placing on you, it probably is time to consult with a medical acupuncturist (Doctor),I would agree that intensive acupuncture can be helpful. good luck!

shin pain

Hi there! Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the possible cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include stress fractures, muscle inflammation, periostitis, vitamin/ micro-nutrient deficiencies, neuro-muscular/ vascular issues etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician or a sports medicine specialist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!

Back pain starts when I am inactive

Find a "weight bearing M.R.I.", you can google for information. It can detect herniations while sitting. Because that is when you have the problem it will be the only way to find out.

hip and leg pain

hi sandy...man i empathize with you!! the pain could be stemming frm your spine...a nerve impingement can cause pain frm hips down. or could likely be bursitis...thats a fluid filled sac that sits over a tendon....very common on a hip., and becomes inflamed. that is apparently my source of pain...i've had 2 sets of cortisone injections now, which gives partial relief but only temporary. i too spend alot of time on a heating pad...laying on my sides...where i've always have slept is impossible now. have you tried anti- inflammatorys?

hip and lower back aching

You need a neurologist or orthopedic doctor. There can be many things that cause the symptoms you are having. Also request a mri. If the problems are originating with your disk, ligaments, or something else the only way to see is a mri or ct scan. It sounds like you do have arthritis because it flares up with the weather. You could also have a pinched nerve causing the pain. It can get worse without proper diagnosis. See if your gp will give you a referral to a specialist so that you can get help. Good luck to you and keep us posted on your progress. Sissie

constant back pain, tingling in arms etc

You need a mri or ct scan. The tingling, numbness is a sign of pinched nerves and they will not show up on x-rays. It could be just from inflammation arthritis or it could be bulging or herniated disk. There is a chart that shows nerve conduction on my profile that may help. It shows the nerves, what they control and what can be going wrong within your bocy because of your nerves. You may be having other problems but may not know the underlying cause is nerve problems.Good luck to you.
