Re: severe back pain after 2 hours of sleep 1 year now

Mike, I've read your message a couple of times to get my head around it. I am certainly not an expert but have suffered severe back pain in the past and I know it is miserable, particularly when it is disturbing your sleep as badly as this, and certainly when you can see no end to it.

My advice to you is this: do not give up trying to find the cause of this pain. There IS a definite reason for your symptoms, there HAS to be....someone will have come across your specific problem you must persist with the doctors and specialists, try different ones for as long as necessary until one of them finds out/ knows what is the cause. Keep trying something new will keep up your spirits, keep researching on the internet...get as much information as you can and avoid anything wacky or anyone giving a link which invloves paying for info.

When you get up in the night, after a while are you able to do any stretches to speed up the time it takes for your back to calm down? You say that massage is the thing that relieves it. Do you have a good massage gadget that you could use yourself? Is there an area in your back that is particularly sore when you have a massage? You can get referred pain in all sorts of places but in my own experience of back pain it's the what I call 'hot spots' that were the culprits of my own symptoms. Have you tried yoga? It stretches everything and helps relax your say you can stretch but can you stretch in all directions? Are there any stretches that you do which are painful or difficult? Maybe the focus of the injury is further up your back than you realise and deep inside your back which is why your breathing is affected when you lie down?? there are so many muscles, tendons and nerves that are intertwined....your diaphragm or something near your lungs goes in to spasm possibly? Sounds as though the docs think it's a nerve they know why that would suddenly happen and cause you such severe symptoms? and only when you lie down? Would it be possible for them to do some kind of scan overnight in hospital when you fall asleep to observe where the changes occur? Is there a sleeping position which makes it even worse? If there is any other type of scan that you haven't had done yet then get it done. I'm no expert like I say...just trying to think of reasons.

Anyway, there is a treatment for this, there has to be because something is causing it... so keep trying new things and even if killing the nerve that you mentioned didn't work, find that person who knows what this is.

My best wishes to you.
