Lower belly and lower back pain, worsens on deep breathing, tightness in tummy. Cause?

Hi, my lower belly and lower back hurt at times, mostly when I am in bed, and if I breathe in deeply they hurt worse. I feel like my tummy is tense and tight and its miserable. Keeps me from sleeping. Sometimes hurts bad when I roll over so I have to keep adjusting my sleep position . I am awake now and its still hurting the same but tends to go away during the day, come back when I lay down at night..

Thanks for writing to us,

Are you obese ? do you drink alcohol regularly?
You may be suffering from lumbar muscle sprain ,or spinal disc bulge which can aggravate on lying down.
If you tummy is large increased pressure may lead to pain .
You need muscle relaxant with analgesic and neurotropic .
I f you are drinking alcohol then these symptoms can be due abdominal fluid collection . you may need USG abdomen to further confirm.

I hope that I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help you further. Take care
