I wake up with severe lower back pain, and will have to sit up while sleeping to reduce the pain. It feels like an organ in my right lower back "fell asleep" or lost blood flow. Rolling over doesn\'t help, I have to be in a sitting/reclining position for the pain to leave. Most times flatuating helps the pain go away faster. I have had a colonoscopy and it looked great. I had endometriosis and while my gynecologist tried to get it all, there was too much to get. I wondered if it had somehow wrapped around an intestine causing squeezing when it\'s full of air. Is that a possibility?
