Random Back Pain

Oh Lord, last night I thought I was going to have to wake G up and make him take me to the ER. For some strange reason, my back just started hurting after I laid down to sleep. I tried to adjust position, but nothing would help. I got up, ran a hot bath, laid in there for a little while, but that didn't help either. I heated up this pad we have and laid on the couch downstairs with the heating pad on my sore back, and that was the first thing that helped. I didn't get back to bed until sometime after 4am, and even then I found myself just praying for sleep so that I could stop hurting, or at least stop being aware that I was hurting. What a crappy night.

I feel somewhat better today, but it is still sore. Is it possible this is all from stress?

I have the same problem. Your body gets used to sitting in a particular way all the time, then you do something different and generally unused muscles get stretched and start "complaining" to your brain.

This is why one of the basic things to do before exercising is to "stretch" your muscles: you will be using most of them in any good exercise program. Perhaps if you exercise-stretched a bit before sitting in a not-usual position, the pains wouldn't be quite so bad.
