There are many different possible causes for back pain in the morning and you will need to go see your chiropractor for a thorough evaluation first so that he/she can diagnose you and tell you exactly why you are feeling this pain. Your sleeping position or your mattress/pillow, etc., could definitely be the cause of your pain and your chiropractor will be able to give you proper treatment and exercises/home care to relieve your pain as soon as other possible causes are ruled out. So, bottom line, go see your chiropractor to get some relief. It’s not fun to wake up with back pain in the morning.
Hope this helps,

It could be aggravated by your sleep, but a sharp pain in the back generally means that there is something happening in your spine or your spinal muscles. Morning pain can mean that your muscles or spine are being aggravated by your sleep position. You may want to have it evaluated if it has been happening for over a week now. A simple chiropractic exam can usually reveal the cause of the problem and then some treatment and home routine should take care of it. Sharp pain has to be evaluated as it can range from anything from joint/muscle issue to nerve pain.
Best of luck to you!
