Question by jaexdubya: I wake up every morning around 3 or 4 due to severe lower back pain, what else can I do?
I get up and stretch my back but it usually takes up to two hours before I can finally fall back to sleep. My matress was purchased from rooms to go less than a year ago and seems very comfortable. I have tried the pillow between the legs trick, but it doesnt work for me. How severe is this, and will I have to live with this for the rest of my life? I am an active athlete and have not reached the big 2-0 just yet.

Because it only happens at night I would think that your mattress has something to do with it.
If you’re confident that it isn’t the mattress, I suggest you have a doctor check you out.
Good luck, I hope you feel better soon!
