I am 25 and I have beared 3 children. I am not overweight. Second about 5 hours into sleep every night I will wake up due to what feels like tight compression around my spine in my middle back, causing it to be very hard to breathe or even move.

My x ray and mri of lower lumbar showed normal but obviously its not.
