In brief: Discuss with MD

If you wake up because of your back pain, you should discuss this with your md as there are certain diseases that need to be investigated.
If the workup is negative, then you should consider stretching and other modalities to help you. Non-narcotic medications may also be an option for you.

In brief: See physician

The most common cause of low back pain is usually due to arthitic changes in the spine although in some cases there is a more serious problem. See your physician sooner than later if you have fever, chills, night sweats, or back pain that wakes you from your sleep.
