Hi sacha

Perhaps you should see your gp, review medication. Discuss possibly having an x-ray of spine.

A referral to physiotherapist and occupational therapist may be of help.

I have problems with my back too…I have a type of arthritis. OT provided me with a contraption that slots in the side of the bed, that helps take the pressure off the spine when getting out of bed.

Good luck
