Dear Winston / Warren
A thorough examination of your back should reveal the possible cause of our discomfort. A chiropractor is best to consult at this stage - he/she may request an x/ray examination and follow up with appropriate care if indicated.
Exercise is also very important as well as the bed you are sleeping on. There are a variety of factors that could cause your pain and stiffnes.
