How do you relieve back pain at night?

I have been having pain that wakes me in my lower lower back almost at my tailbone. It also gets bad during the day. I have MS and arthritis so this might just be one of those things I have to live with but I cannot live without sleep. Any suggestions?

Hello,

The pain in the lower back is mostly postural in nature. This can be relieved with oral muscle relaxants and mild pain killers. Doing a hot compress will also help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello,

Arthritis can be on offer the causes of back pain. I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day. I also suggest physical therapy and regular exercise daily for relief.
