    perhaps you should consider seeing your GP about it? perhaps you have bad posture or something, which although isn't life threatening the sooner you start correcting it, the easier a task this will be.

    I have scoliosis so my back constantly feels tight. I do some stretches but I don't really know if I should tell you them in case they actually end up doing damage to your back if the issue is in a different area of your back to mine :dontknow:

    Yeah but don't worry about your dad finding out or what ever, I'm sure he'd rather just know you were making yourself comfortable! Lying stretched out on floors does help though, and put your arms up over your head so your back really is opening, that would get rid of some tension I should imagine

    If it is a long term problem you should see a GP and they may refer you to a physio.
