Muscles or spine: If the stiffness loosens up after being up and about for a while, i wonder if your mattress is the problem. You're too young to have osteoarthritis of the spine which is a common cause of morning back discomfort, but if your symptom doesn't improve or worsens, have your physician check your back.
