Back Pain

I get back pain after lying in bed for 5 hours

My bed is new. I cannot lie in bed for longer than 5 hours because of severe back pain which develops.

Hallo Tracey,

Congratulations with the new bed. It sounds as if stiffness in certain parts of your bodymight be causative to your symptoms.

My suggestion is that you pay a visit to a health practioner (physiotherapist, chiropractor, and/or biokinethetist) to do a through evaluation. Thereafter, a management programme, including specific stretches should help.

All the best,
Susan Grobler

I am experiencing a continuous pain starting in my right hip once I get up and developing down my right thigh and further down into the knee. Sometimes the knee just gives in under weight. I enjoy walking but lately this has caused me to be scared of actually falling. What can it be?
