Hi, i'm male late 30s.

Over the last week I have been waking up with a sharp pain in the middle of my back.

I need to get out of bed immediatrly to soften the pain and within 30 mins it is gone. No pain during the day.
Hot water from the morning shower seems to help.

I have been to a massage parlour who claimed they would fix the problem, but no luck.

Over the last couple of nights the pain has woken me around 2am, I walk around the house for 30 mins and go back to bed. I then deal with the morning pain.

Does this sound firmilar? Any suggestions on how I can manage this/make it go away?

Welcome to the CPA forum Pickslides.

We don't do clinical advice here. If you have any problems that you have no answers for, you need to go to your GP to get it checked out. Sure we all suffer odd pains and problems with out backs, but the problem is, they are all so very different and occur for very different reasons. And much of it will disappear once we are up and moving. If it persists, then you need to get it checked out.

Seriously, the best thing for you to do is go to the doctor and get it checked out.

Sorry we can't help you with that.

Hi Peter, thanks for the reply.

I intend having it checked out by a GP over the next couple of days.

I agree with Peter. Having it examined by GP n if required by ortho, can be your best bet. I suffer from sciatica which is usually a shooting pain, like electricity. I am currently under physiotherapy to resolve or control the same. It took me over 6 months to get diagnosed for it.
There can be numerous reasons for low back pain right from neuromuscular dysfunction to postural problems. Most low back pain is acute or short term, and lasts a few days to a few weeks. However, back pain that continues for weeks or months must get examined by specialist.
