"Sleep wrong": Assuming you have only back pain, done nothing physically unusual in the preceding few days, and are not menstruating/ovulating, then most likely your sleep position strained your back or compressed the facet joints in the back of your spine.

Many things...: Excess weight frequently contributes to musculoskeletal pain - sore backs, sore knees, etc. You may have strained it lifting something, using poor technique. There are other medical conditions that might explain back pain: menstrual cramps, urinary tract infections, endometriosis, etc. Alternating heat and ice can be a good first-line treatment. It's great you recognize now the impact of weight!

I have lower back pain in the right part when I woke up in the morning. The pain began to reduce when I left my bed. What are the possible reasons?
See a SPECIALIST: I hate to disagree with other physicians, especially as neither of us have exmined you, but my experience is that a primary care physician is first going to think of pills to fix a prolem like yours. I suspect 9and remember I have not seen you or your records) that you have a facet injury, and that can simply be dealt with by a good pain managment doc without the use of pills.See 1 more doctor answer

Having lower back pain, mostly in the morning. Hurts to straighten back or bend forward. Bowels are small & soft. Feeling slightly bound up.
IBS: Sounds like IBS, perhaps with constipation-predominant symptoms. Would recommend a hi fiber diet, with a psyllium supplement (like Konsyl or similar) and perhaps a probiotic like Activia yogurt or Schiff Digestive Advantage. Stress management, getting enough sleep and a daily exercise program are also important. If there is no improvement, further testing would be needed.

Hello how are you, it is 9 days after menstrual and I wake up yesterday morning with extremely painful lower back pain and 2 very light spot, lil help?
? Bleeding: Since you are out of the cycle I would definitely not worry too much. But, I would have to say that if there was any change in your period I would be careful. For example some people may have spotting outside their regular period. Take this as a warning that you definitely should see every period through to it's end. If there is any more spotting you may want to wear a light pad.
