    When I wake up in morning in absolute agony, like upper spine, through to chest, takes me 15-20 mins to get out, then it sort of goes away

    I am assuming its either the way I sleep, or my mattress, but I have had this mattress year or so and its really nice and my lass think its class too, don't see why I would suddenly be hurting from it. Am Only 30 like, feel like an old man

    Anyone go to chiropractor which much success?

    My GP is fucking useless.

    That's what half a decade of bending over backwards to defend Cattermole does.

    Try lying flat on the floor for a bit and see if it cracks or eases.

    Oddly enough I found out last night I have an anterior pelvic tilt. Pain in the arse to get rid of. Literally.

    If it's postural you need to do stretches and exercises every day to correct it really.

    Serious question, have you tried CBD oil? It won't 'fix' it but it doesn't half help. (And no, i'm not about the herbal cigarette, the non psychoactive drops)

    That's right, stretch the muscles and correct them, Pilates is your best bet

    No, what the hell is it?

    I was sat on the tube on a long journey before and I could feel it coming on again, so it seems to be when in 1 position for a while

    Just gonna lay down on my floor now

    Aye gonna try this now, feel like I need someone pulling me arms and legs in opposite directions.

    I go now and again (when it flairs up) to a sports Physio.

    Basically crack it back into shape.

    Private? how much you paying?

    was thinking that or maybe a massage just in case its knots or someit

    Horrible back pain I suffer from it too in lower back though.

    Get prescribed pregabalin and tramadol but try not to take them.

    Stretching regularly helps a lot. I would recommend asking you're GP for an appointment with a Physio.

    They are much better than the GP as they only seem to just prescribe you drugs.

    I learned loads of different stretches from my Phsyio and they have helped a lot.

    A good one is stand up against the wall totally straight with feet about a foot apart.

    Then keeping back fully against the wall look forwards you're toes with arms out in front of waste and slowly try go as far down as can without taking back off wall.

    One of the stretches I do, helps loads but I get lower back pain rather than at top.

    Research Amatsu then go and see someone who does it, the lad who I went to see sorted my back out but he is very high in demand and it’s difficult to get an appointment.

    Will give it a look mate cheers.

    A lot of my pain comes from everything not being designed for my height.

    When doing dishes etc always stooped over a bit as bench is just about level with my bollocks.

    My back has been dodgy for years due to rugby, weight lifting and sitting at a desk.

    I bought an Eve mattress and an Acupressure mat.

    Sorted :cool:
