Could be the result of facet degeneration or damage. Typical facet symptoms reduce with activity in the morning, but return the next morning like clockwork. Seek an expert opinion, and do not get sucked into the "take one if it helps, take two if it does not" pill cycle.

In brief: Facet arthritis

A very common and overlooked cause of morning back pain and stiffness is facet joint arthritis.
It is important to know if this is the cause because it has a very simple and effective treatment. To find out if this is causing your pain, see a well qualified pain medicine physician who can do simple interventional pain procedures.
