Does waking up after a sleeping spell make you feel like you’re living your nightmare with all the body aches you experience? Waking up after a good night’s sleep should ideally make you feel fresh and active, but if its making you squirm in pain, something is definitely wrong. If you have been experiencing regular bouts of body ache after sleep, it is time to start inspecting your sleeping positions. This chronic pain might interfere in your daily activities and work.
1. Back Pain
It is the most common side effect of sleeping in bad positions. While most of us ignore it as being just another common issue, it should be noted that repeated back pain due to wrong sleeping habits can cause disruption in the spine alignment. To avoid back pain, you should sleep with your spine in a neutral and naturally curved up position. When sleeping, keep a pillow under your knees to achieve slight distance between your legs which helps your spine relax. The pain will subside within a few days.
