Endometriosis

Causes Of Back Pain At Night

A day spent slouching at the desk or an evening spent dancing on high heels affects the spine curve and leads to back pain at night. A very soft or a hard and uneven mattress won't support your back and will worsen the pain. If change in sleeping and sitting posture doesn't lower the pain, and you aren't pregnant, see a doc and test for spinal arthritis or tumors, kidney stones, or a cancer of the abdominal organs.

8 Possible Causes Of Endometriosis And 4 Risk Factors

Although the exact cause of endometriosis isn't known, female hormones, especially estrogen has an important role to play. Back flow of menstrual debris, an overactive immune system, a family history of endometriosis, and a history of abdominal or pelvic surgery are other possible causes. Women who menstruate before 11 or have a cycle shorter than 27 days and heavy, long periods are at risk.
