    Have you done anything different to normal?

    And is the pain inside your back (as in abdominal pain but in the back area) or is it the actual spine that hurts?

    Is it just slight pain or does it hurt so much you cant stand or walk properly?

    Does it go when you take pain killers?

    It's possible the pain appear in your sleep, sometimes by taking wrond position while sleeping you can hurt yourself and will notice only the next morning.

    Can anyone give you a massage?

    It might be a nerve that have moved...

    Hot bath can be quite efficient as well sometimes...

    Its hard to describe where the pain is really, think its more on my spine. Its not so bad I cant walk or stand properly, i do have to kind of roll myself out of bed though! I do work at a computer pretty much all day and this is something i was thinking it might be realted to...think im gonna go to the dotor next week if its still bad though

    Bingo! There's your cause most likely, take breaks, get a new chair (or adjust the one you've got properly) etc. all the usual stuff.
