I've revived this thread after doing a search to see whether any fellow fetchies had a similar problem to me. I've never had a back problem in my life, until 4 days ago. Since Saturday night, I've been waking in the early hours with a really sore back. It's the area above my waist but below my shoulder blades. Lying in bed is agony, as is turning over, and when I first get up I feel really stiff and sore and it hurts to bend or twist. Then about 3-4 hours after I get up and am walking around or sitting at work, it wears off. I've been googling to see if I can find any suggestions to make it go away and almost everything I've read suggests lying flat, which is the thing that makes it ache in the first place.

I suppose my questions are, should I be worried about it, will it go away on it's own, do you think I need to see a GP? Any thoughts?

sounds like u may have tweaked a muscle in your back or a muscle spasm susie - i tweaked muscle sitting and stairs and tying my shoe lace - took about a week to come right and was really sore to bend, turn or move in bed - hope it gets better soon
