What is this back pain I get when sitting at work all day?

What is this back pain I get when sitting at work all day?

See below: The human body was not designed to sit all day. Sitting for hours on end deconditions muscles, results in poor posture and puts added pressure to the discs. It is important to move around several times during the day if you have a sitting job. I tell my patients who sit in their jobs to change positions from sit to stand about once an hour. If your back pain does not go away see your doctor.

I get back pain when sitting and lying down. Also wake up stiff. Is this serious? Causing me a lot of pain, I want to stand all the time.

Common back pain: Musculoskeletal back pain is most commonly worse sitting or lying down. It is also common to wake up stiff. This should resolve with conservative measures of stretching, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatories. See your doctor for this.

Nocturnal dorsalgia: Knowing what caused the back pain at such a young age would be helpful. It is likely due to a musculo-ligamentous / myofascial etiology. A better medical history, review of systems, physical examination & x-ray are generally needed in case of chronic back pain. Proper posture & egronimcs, specific stretching and core strengthening maneuvers may help. Changing a mattress may help as well.

Pinched nerve: Sounds like you may have a pinched nerve in the back Often patients will develop numbness, tingling, and pain that radiates from the back down the leg. Depending on the nerve that is pinched, it will affect different parts of the leg. Over time, weakness may develop as well. I would recommend getting it checked out. You may need an EMG and/or MRI

I have really bad lower back pain. It doesn't shoot down my leg or get numb. Hurts the worst when I stand up from a sitting position. What can it be?

I have really bad lower back pain. It doesn't shoot down my leg or get numb. Hurts the worst when I stand up from a sitting position. What can it be?

Mechanical back pain: Back pain that doesn't radiate and gets worse after standing is usually musculoskeletal back pain. When we sit our iliopsoas muscles get tighter and then when we stand that tightness causes pain. Usually, a back extension program is a quick and easy fix. But see your doctor for treatment options.

See below: Low back pain that occurs more with sitting is suggestive of pain coming from the lumbar discs. When we sit, the pressure in these discs rises and can cause pain in discs that have some degeneration. It is important to change positions between sitting and standing at lease once an hour if you can.

Rear-neck/back pain for 2 mths, now less but get random daily tightness in front neck, face, jaw/teeth, arm tingling, headaches esp. When sitting long. Mostly gone when wake up and worsens gradually?

Jaw and Muscle Pain: It appears that you have a serious TMJ and muscle dysfunction that causes these muscles to go into a spasm and the jaw joint (TMJ) to be misaligned. You seriously need treatment from a dentist that is very skilled at treating tmj. Only about 5% of dentist are really good in this realm in that they are very familiar with multiple treatment options to select from based on the patient needs.

Why can sitting slouchy lead to back pain?

See below: When slouching, the muscles of the back are stretched to a point where they can no longer do their job of keeping you upright. If the muscles are not working correctly, most of the pressure of your upper body is transmitted to your spine without the protective function of your muscles. Bottom line: don't sit slouchy!
