Hi I’ve had daily back pain for over 4 years. Got another MRI planned in January but the scan two years ago was clear, nothing to report. I am journaling and meditating. My back pain is worse in bed and morning. It’s actually worst in my sides just beneath the rib cage, I wake up every day very sore and very stiff. Generally I loosen up a bit through the day but the pain never goes away. My sides are so sore and my back is very stiff and tender. Up into my neck also. I believe it’s TMS. But I get doubt when people talk of a stressful event leading to acute back spasms. I’m stressed every day and my back/sides hurt every day. There’s no change and no noticeable trigger. Most success stories appear to be sudden sharp spasms that ease off after time then come back. I cannot find one story similar to mine of the pain consistently there for years? For the record I have several other aches and pains too and I’m soooo tired everyday. I feel battered physically and mentally. Could do with any advice or reassurance especially around the bed pain / morning pain. Thanks.
