SnowOwl Can you be more specific as to where the pain is? Is it your muscle or the spine/disks? My's a tweaked nerve. When you're sleeping, your body actually loosens and relaxes since your muscles aren't constantly flexing, and the lying down position is no longer forcing gravity to put stress on your spine, so at those wee hours before you wake up, that's obviously the most relaxed your body has become and as a result your nerve is getting aggrivated since your body is re-aligning, a position you haven't been used to. This can all be a result of bad posture putting something out of place and continuing your life syle without addressing the problem, making your body develop improperly around the aggrevated area. But sedentary (sitting down)life styles do put a ton of stress on your back. Putting your body in the sitting position alone puts 40% more pressure on the spine. Try a medicine ball at work. It will help decrease the amount of pressure applied to your spine, and will force you to be actively aware of your posture. Have you done anything new in your exercise routine? Different type of running? If so try stretching out your hamstrings before sleeping, they're connected to your lower back, so when they're tight you'll get a tight cramping feeling in your lower back. It's hard to say without more info. Buy a foam roal. It will become your best friend. trust me. Not the soft mushy crap kind. Get the black one.

ETM Go and get a remedial massage, if for no other reason than to learn exactly what muscles are the ones that give you trouble, you will know which ones cause you will hit the roof when they massage them.
Then its a matter of stretching to keep them from pulling tight and aching. Yoga will be awesome for that.

this. also if your a tall person like i am. DONT forget to stretch out your back every morning and drink lots of vitamin C. Vitamin C will help reduce inflammation which causes joint pain and help clear your body of lactic acid. But honestly if your bed is old try some new sheets or even a new pillow to help even out your back.

Also if it really bothers you just smoke some trees

sheepstealer Right on.

BEDS. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. My current bed/mattress is pushing 10 years now (I think).

Frozen Any changes in body weight (i.e. are you getting fat?)? Cause I read that can cause back pain.

Otherwise try flipping your mattress. It probably won't do shit but it's free so it could be worth a try.

BurtonAvenger Could be any number of things from shitty bed, sitting all day, lack of arch support, spinal compression, slipping disk, disk degeneration, hernia, rough anal sex, etc. etc.

Casual If you have no previous back injuries, you do not experience back pain during the day and are not doing activities that cause back pain... get a new bed.
