Forum Name: Spinal problems and back pain
|bluecosmicstar - Wed Dec 28, 2005 10:09 am|
I have had spinal problems for a number of years now, but as of late when i awake i find i am in considerable pain, and i am paralysed from the lower back down, until i can pull myself over onto my side and ease myself up. I am really getting worried that i will end up in a wheelchair very soon as i am only 34 and have quite an active life, please help me?

I too have lower back pain upon waking a lot, I cannot sit up and have to turn over sometimes onto my knees to get out of bed. Only when i am up right after urinating, the pain seems to ease.
I have never been to the doctor as I just asumed it was maybe my matress or the way i sleep.
I would be very interested to hear from anyone about this :?

Like you really can't move. If I was in your situation, I'd be seeing dr right way, something could be getting compressed while laying down, many possibilites. I often wake with lower back pain and I know I have some scoliosis but as of late its harder to move in the am and I'm debating calling a dr. I'd make an appt-just my opinion.
