Mine, too, started while doing frequent lifting while working at a retail location, often with 12 hour shifts, standing on unpadded concrete. I've since had 100% desk jobs
with no improvement.
Pain isn't really all that big of a deal since it rarely lasts past 30 minutes after I wake up. I'm just sick of the insomnia. I've been to a variety of "care providers." with absolutely no results.
- Sever pain, enough to wake you up, usually about 3-4 hours after falling asleep.
