This is really weird.. I have the exact same symptoms! I originally searched for middle back pain when waking up and came to this thread. I have the same pain, the same hand numbness, the same increased pain after sleeping longer than 6 hours, the same ease of pain after being awake for some time, and I am on Suboxone.. There has to be some connection here! We bought a new expensive firm mattress, which seems top make it worse. SometAny imes its my lower back, sometimes my mid back. I feel like if I have a full colon before going to sleep, or haven't removed my bowels for a couple of days, it's ten times worse. I could never think about laying on my stomach anymore, and that used to be my favorite position. I'm 30 years old, and I feel like I'm 70 with these pains I wake up with.
I think it's more than as coincidence that we are all on subs, and this is happening to all of us. Especially since I didn't even search for suboxone, or ever think that there could be a connection. I must admit, I'm somewhat relieved seeing others with the same exact problems as myself. Do you folks take any sub right before bed? I do, and I'm wondering if thats part of the problem. I have no doubt that that is one of the causes.
Any additional insight from anyone would be greatly appreciated!View Thread
