Just like the title says. My mattress is on its way out, which seems to correspond with a resurgence of back pain I have been having. At times it can be sciatic and right leg radiating, other times its just an achy, lower back stifness. My chiro says I have excessive lordosis, but while his adjustments seem to bring temporary relief, I’m not 100% that what hes telling me is more than a canned line. I have always practiced good form when lifting. No one particular exercise seems to cause me trouble, and I cant think of an acute moment that brings on the episodes.
I can however say that It’s always worse in the AM when I wake up. Should I ask for an MRI just to be sure, or is it wishful thinking that a new mattress will solve my problems. The episodes seem to be more and more frequent lately and I want to squash this before it becomes an issue that completely sidelines my training. THanks in advance for any help.
