Back pain after sleeping
After 4-5 hours of sleeping, I get up with upper back pain(exactly behind the chest in the rib cage) from last 15 days. Pain usually disappears with in one hour of getting up from bed and is not there for all activities of the day. My chest is clear, as I checked with physician. I don't think so it's a mattress problem as I m using same mattress from last 2 years but possible as its local cotton mattress. I m trying to sleep(with back support) as straight as possible.I never faced this problem before

Sir, Since the mattress is two year old it might have worn out.also check if it's sagging.other reason for the pain could be more of stiffness as at night your body is attaining one position for a very long time.. start exercising regularly .The morning stiffness and pain would eventually subside with good exercise plan and  maintaining a consistent exercise programme.
