Back pain symptoms may seem obvious. But do you know when symptoms of back pain are more serious or when to see a doctor? Learn what action to take & when...
I have been experiencing chronic back pain, only at night, after I've been asleep a few hours. Its been going on for over a month, but not every night. Some are worse than others. My doc, sent me back to physical therapy, which has ruled out muscular or skeletal. My physical therapist has sent me back to my doc to have blood tests done. I do have adnomyosis, which may be nothing. I just turned 30 and other than this, I've never had any real medical problems. I clean houses and am very active during the day, and it feels fine. On my days off, the pain seems much worse. If I do not work out my muscles during the day, the pain is much worse. I feel like I'm going crazy at times because of lack of sleep. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Have you considered consulting with a chiropractor? Chiropractic treatment is very safe and effective, and excels at the treatment of low back pain. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask.
