I do not think I am flaring right now. My diet seems to have sorted that out.
If I sleep more than 5 or 6 hours, I wake up every time I need to move with excruciating lower back pain. The kind that makes you freeze, not daring to move because it hurts. Then I have to (very slowly) ease myself into a new position. I'm usually able to fall asleep again afterwards being the skilled sleeper that I am.
Once I get up and am moving about, the pain goes away after maybe half an hour.
I know I have Sacroiliac Dysfunction. Very common with CD so I hear. I want to know if there's anything I can do to get a good night of sleep without waking up in agony. I don't want to see a chiropractor, my SI joint always slips right back into it's own position within seconds of getting off the table.
