Brief Answer:
Can be due to a back muscle spasm.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have read your problem in detail.
A stiff lower back after waking up can happen due to back muscle spasm or a strain of the back muscles or a beat up mattress providing inadequate rest to the back. Usually this subsides with rest and oral muscle relaxants. Doing a hot compress and application of muscle relaxant gel like volini will also help. Any pathology in the soft tissue can be detected after an MRI scan.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
