Severe back pain while lying down, excessive pressure in lower back. Home remedy?

I m 28years old, healthy male with no history of medical problems. I m having horrible back pain when I lay down at night. It wakes me up and interrupts my sleep. It s my lower middle back and feels like a lot of pressure pushing outward. Sometimes the pain radiates down into the scrotum area. The only thing that helps is getting out of bed and walking around. By noon, the back pain is all but gone and I am able to do my regular work and go to the gym to lift weights/run without any issue. I have not been to a doctor about this, but is there an at home remedy to deal with the issue?

This symptom is serious if it persistant and regular.This usually occurs when you have some lesion on spinal canal which expands on lying down due to venous dilatation leads to nerve compresion which is expressed as back pain going to legs.You need complete check up by neurosurgeon or neurologist .
