Waking up in pain, what does it mean? It could indicate many different things, but sometimes the reason we are waking up is because of a stressful dream. It could be the mind's way of protecting us from a disturbing situation. The dream world can sometimes be a scary place, and might even be a more scary place than the real world for many of us at times.
Perhaps when you wake up the middle of the night, you find that you have low-back pain, which you might not have had when you went to bed, but suddenly you feel that ache or stabbing pain. It may be that you are experiencing other types of pain; such as in your shoulder, neck, leg, or maybe it is sciatic pain. Pain experienced in this manner is often simply Tension-Based Pain (TBP).
You find yourself wide-awake, with low-back pain, and when you are so uncomfortable it is really difficult to fall back to sleep. One method to help you get back to sleep is to completely relax your low-back muscles.
Follow these steps outlined in the technique below. You will move from the top of your spine (your head) all the way to the base of the spine. Try this and you may be back to sleep before you know it.
Total Muscular Relaxation (TMR)
Hopefully, you will soon drift off, and have a restful night of sleep.
