Common: Since about 80% of the population will suffer from back pain in their lives, and 95% of those people need no real help nor therapy, your symptoms are common. Rest, anti inflammatory medications, heat or ice on the low back will help. If it persists, see your family dr for evaluation and treatment.

Diagnosis: Most cases I see are due to sitters disease or gait (ex; foot position). But you need to identify the origin and rule out more serious causes. Any neurologic issues like numbness in the legs, no muscle weakness, no fever, no urinary pain, fever, genital discharge, acute trauma, insect bites, etc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TO8Il3vdxQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6SXiDCMP3E

Discuss with MD: If you wake up because of your back pain, you should discuss this with your md as there are certain diseases that need to be investigated. If the workup is negative, then you should consider stretching and other modalities to help you. Non-narcotic medications may also be an option for you.
