Hi, my name is kiz! I have bad back pain, and they don't know what causes it. Any advice?

I am 42 yrs old I have suffered with back pain for years.  My pain is worse on a night the second part of the night when i have been laid on it a few hours.  If i lay on one side i feel pain and pressure on my spine then again if i turn on the other side the same feeling.  To get comfortable i will go on my back but then wake up in a lot of pain from my neck i have to hold on to me head to move my neck slowly its that painful.  Once i have moved it the bad pain goes. I spend the second half go the night in-between sleep because of the pain.  During the day i suffer with my back but i can handle it. i am very stiff in the mornings but once i get moving although i can feel my back hurting i can cope.  I have had an MRI and blood tests ...the only thing they say on the MRI is wear and tear and blood tests are all good.  I just can't believe they can't find anything when i am in so much pain.  I want to ask for a second a pinion or maybe other tests they can do but i am not sure what else can be done.  Id anyone could offer some advice i would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you

    Hu and welcome. 

    Sorry to hear about your pain I would consult a chiropractor the one I saw was a miracle worker.  I had to pay but was worth every penny 

    Hope you get something sorted

    Welcome to the community @kiz :) I'm also sorry to hear that you're in so much pain. 

    How is your pain being managed at the moment? Are you on any medication? Have you seen a physiotherapist?
