There are many...: ...causes of back pain. Sleeping in a recliner every night could contribute, partly because it doesn't allow you to change positions during sleep & isn't designed specifically for sleep. There may be an underlying condition that makes you want to sleep in a semi-upright position. These conditions include heart failure, GERD, obstructive sleep apnea & obesity. Please consult your doctor!
