Back pain vs arthritis
Back pain that is mechanical (injury or strain) gets worse with movement and lifting. Back pain from arthritis is inflammation and usually relieved with light exercise and anti-inflammatories
Will back pain raise blood pressure
It’s still a matter of debate. Studies from several researchers have shown mixed results, the correlation between back pain and high blood pressure is not fully understood yet.
Will back pain go away on its own
A minor muscle strain may go away on its own with rest. Back pain that does not go away or that causes decreased mobility is a sign of a more serious condition or injury.
Why back pain when sleeping
The most common reason is because you’re not padding between your knees if you’re a side sleeper. A more rare but serious reason back pain can wake you up at night is from an inflammatory condition.
Where back pain comes from
Improper lifting & bending, poor posture, and inflammation are the most common causes.
