No idea.

Referred pain from lumbar disc disease can appear centered in the mid-back, but not likely without long-time severe low back pain as you report your condition.

I'd guess this is probably muscular pain, due to a sagging mattress, poor sleeping posture, and weakness in your abdominal core muscles. Perhaps, like most of us, you are carrying some extra weight around your middle?

All of these factors can contribute to a sore back in the morning. Try some stretching exercises upon rising to work out the soreness. Generally, pills do not alleviate this kind of pain.

Learn to strengthen your "core" muscles. A PT can train, or you can easily find exercises on the internet. Search for "core strengthening"

Best wishes.
