Lower back issues with sleeping
When I wake up in the mornings I'm always face down. Getting out of bed is a process where I have to slowly rise to my hands and knees and stretch my back like a cat, and it's pretty painful. Just trying to stand up is not an option, I've been woken suddenly and jumped out of bed and the pain makes me feel like I've had the breath knocked out of me. It's almost like I can feel the fluid in the discs evening out, like a firm waterbed when get up off of it. There doesn't seem to be any way to keep me from sleeping on my stomach, no matter what position I go to sleep in I always wake up face down. Anyone know of anything that can relieve the pressure that I'm feeling? Certain exercises, etc? I've contemplated going to the medics about it, but am not sure. Of course, since I'm already on profile for my broken foot, now might be the best time to get it checked out.
