Hello there....considering your age & onset of pain you have back discomfort from an early age .... it is in your best intrest to get it properly diagnosed... the earlier the better....My advice to you is get complete MRI scan of your spine and check your RA factor,sr calcium,D3,uric acid and CBC levels through a blood sample.(as your problem has now started in shoulder also) It would be appropriate to comment after your MRI & lab test. If you could provide details regarding your height & weight it would be helpful also what kind of occoupation are you engaged in or are you a student? Do get back to me regarding any other queries. Regards & Take care.

The pain is typically suggestive of Inflammatory arthritic type. You need to get HLA-B27 done to rule out spondyloarthropathy (Ankylosing Spondylitis).

Morning pain is a sign that this is something more than mere postural or muscular issue.....since it is less common at your age another reason could be that there is some issue with your mattress and pillow.... Please use the right sleeping posture... And consult a physiotherapist to help you

Morning stiffness is due to muscles and intervertebral disc retain fluid as no load on spine in night.. So always do little exercise before coming down to the bed. And consult a physio... For permanent cure..
