Back pain and lack of sle

I can't sleep for more than 4.5 to 5 hours at a stretch due to uncomfortable back pain. Also I do not get up refreshing, feel sharp pain in knees and ankles. Back pain receeds once I complete my first stool of the day, but the story continues next day. Need help to be healthy and fit.
