Mechanical vs inflam: This could be inflammatory or could be mechanical back pain. Inflammatory back pain can wake one up in the early morning hours, and get better with activity. Some are your comments also suggest that could be a mechanical aspect. Your physician will need to get evaluation and imaging in order to help clarify what the best diagnosis is.
