Has anyone here experienced strange back pain since stopping Fin, specifically at night? I’ve had this checked out with three physio’s and all of them are puzzled. One thing to note is I haven’t had an MRI yet as I’d like to avoid this if it’s the Fin as it’ll pick up shit and cost me the equiv of USD$800 for nothing.
Symptoms - The pain only starts at night when I’m lying down in bed at around 3am in the morning. It’s like a dull burning and spasms in the mid-back only, not lumbar, lower or upper back. As if I had overworked it during a gym session for example. It seems to start building over night and gets worse as time passes after 3am, to the point where I can’t even move otherwise it’ll spasm. If I don’t drop an ibuprofen or pain med at this point I can’t ignore it and go back to sleep. As soon as I get up, after 15 minutes the pain is gone and over the course of a few hours the tightness in my back wears off. Throughout the day I’m completely fine, honestly I could bust out a back flip right here no probs, complete mobility with no pinching or pain anywhere, nothing radiating to my legs of feet, no pissing blood…nothing.
I’ve tried everything from different mattresses to different pillows, different sleeping positions etc. I’ve tried eating different foods and playing around with exercise to see what helps it. I’ve only noticed isolating my back during a heavy hypertrophy workout seems to calm it down that night only (wtf?), then the next night it flares up again. The pain has been ongoing for about 4 weeks now with no signs of letting up. Some have suggested stress, my wife is pregnant which might be background stress but apart from that I do f&$k all at work and I’m secure in my position.
I’m a fit guy normally, dead lifts, squats etc, never had back pain in my life. This all started randomly one night 4 weeks ago and that’s it. I don’t understand it but I’m thinking Fin as all the other random shit I’ve has since stopping seems to be linked to it. I’ve done a full blood work recently (before the pain) and nothing turned up, check out this post here for my bloods if you think it might be something linked to it.
Any ideas guys? I and others are completely puzzled. Once you think you’re through the worst of it some BS backpain now hits you down again, specially during sleep where I need it most.
