    Mid-upper back pain

    Hello!

    It has been a long time since I last posted in this forum. For the mast 2 weeks or so I’ve been waking up 5 hours or so into my sleep with really bad mid-upper back pain. It wakes me up from my sleep.

    Theres not much i can do when laying down at this point to make it go away except getting up and moving around. If I move around when laying down the pain can get worse.

    I have zero pain during the day or 10-20 mins after getting up. I immediately thought it was my mattress and just last night I slept on a newer mattress we got for our guests and guess what? Horrrible pain woke me up at around 4-5 am…

    If it was my mattress sleeping on a new one should have made a difference, right? I mafde the mistake of googling anf of course, could be a sign of tumour, spine degeneration, etc. (Particularly because it waked me up from my sleep)

    Anyone has had something similar? Should I be worried about this? Any comments will be appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Rey

    Thank you for taking the time to answer to my thread!

    Still waking up every 3-5 hours after going to sleep in a lot of pain…. Anyone has any tips to help with this? It came out of nowhere and its not letting me get a good night’s rest… im concerned that it is a degenerative thing. Is there any way I could tell if this is muscular as opposed to nerve/disk?

    Thanks!

    I have a lot of upper back pain. Most of it is posture and tension/stress related. If an OTC cream or pain reliever lessens it, even a little bit, its pretty obvious.
