Back pains?

Hello, I've been suffering for some months with back pain.

It only seems to occur when I wake up early in the morning. As in it wakes me up, not that I wake up naturally. I thought it might be my bed for a while, but I've slept round people's houses and it occur there too.

It's really quite odd. I get upper AND lower back pain. Paracetamol does not work whatsoever on it, neither does ibuprofen. I use a heated up lavender bag on it, and while it soothes it a little, it does not make it go away. Baths don't either.

The only way I can get rid of it is by tricking myself into sleeping (and then I usually wake up and it's gone, though I often feel a sort of "ache" where it was), or by getting up and walking around for half an hour.

I've been wondering if maybe I'm lactose intolerant because I do have a sweet tooth for ice cream, and if I eat that the evening before I often find that the back pains do appear. Same with milk.

The pain feels very much like someone is holding a metal bar tightly against my back. It feels pressured and constant.

Any help would be appreciated! If you want to ask any questions, ask away. :3
