Anyone else's back hurt that it wakes you up in the mornings? This is the only time this happens. It's hard enough getting to sleep then being woken up this way!

Edited: What I really want is home remedies of any kind that might help or affordable stuff I can buy under $20 have an extremely limited income.
That's it no more hummus. (The next day has more, lolz.)

I do!!! My job is extremely active. I clean luxury homes. I bought a waist trainer back support thing, and it’s really helped wearing it at work and during cardio.

It shouldn’t be worn all the time; some people become reliant on them. I would also suggest back exercises and stretching every night. Also getting your hubby to massage the strained areas forces acids out. :)

I began taking collagen and alpha lipoic acid supplements. I have had sciatica pain for years, since my 20’s. I’m also a nurse so doing ridiculous things didn’t help. But since starting that it’s gone, like for real gone. The ache and burn in my hip and thigh has disappeared. It might be worth a shot.

Thanks much, I'll give it a try. I can't buy anything right now so it'll have to wait. :/

I know you're looking for home remedies but you might try taking 1000mg tylenol before bed. See if it helps. Ask your doctor first if you have any issues with tylenol.

According to my physical therapist, walking 10+ minutes a day is the most helpful thing for people with back pain. I also think stretching before bed could help with the pain.

I will just throw this out there - I had back pain for years and finally realized it was referred colon pain from IBS. Ibuprofen still helps that, though.

I have been working in the mine for more than ten years and my back pain is a chronic disease. Which I recently got rid of with Prednisolone is a universal medicine for back joint and joint pain. I just felt some freedom when I got rid of my back pain.
