One day in June of 2009 I was woke up from sleep from a diffuse/dull pain in my back. I have have that pain every morning since. After I lay down and sleep somewhere between 4-6 hours in Im woken up by my back pain. The pain location varies from lower back all the way up between the shoulder blades. The back pain is often accompanied by a generalized abdominal pain which resembles indigestion. After I get up and out of bed both the back pain and abdominal pain resolve in about an hour, I have NO PAIN during the day. I have been to the doctor and they dont have much to say tried physical therapy with no success. Sleeping in my reclining chair is relieving of symptoms although that is hardly ideal it does allow me to squeeze out another hour or two of sleep if needed. For a while I thought the pain in my back was musculoskeletal but now Im wondering if it is referred pain from some GI disorder. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I miss being able to get a full nights rest.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
