Why is my pain worse when I lay down
I have 2 degenerative discs in my neck and 2 in my L4 and L5 with Spondylolisthesis. For the last 6 months I've had pain on my outer thigh buttocks area and it radiates into my inner thigh. I have the pain worse at night when I lay down. Is there any types of stretch exercises that will help with this condition? And why is the pain worse when I lay down?

hi I also have DDD in my L4 L5 with the same pain...(not fun)
the pain is worse with me too when laying down, I've been told its because the spine is probably not in good alingment when laying also there is pressure from the mattress on the nerve area.
I sleep on a heating pad which helps some other times I use Ice packs...either help somewhat.
make sure your mattress is firm but with a soft pillow top...if on your back put a pillow under your knees, if laying on your side put the pillow between your knees.
Yeah its great trying to move with pillows stuffed all over.
good luck
