I have had 5 previous back surgeries on my lumbar. I now have a severe pain that is constant in my left side of lower back at top of pelvic bone. It worsens by laying down with my leg straighten out. It is escusating pain and wakes me every night after about 4 to 4 1/2 hours of sleep. No one has successfully been able to diagnoise it. But it is constant even when sitting or especially standing. what seems to help it ease the pain is by bridging my spine outward or lifting my left leg slightly to take the pressure off it. It wakes me every night and I can not lay with my leg straight at night this makes it feel like someone is stabbing me by the top of the pelvic bone.
