Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before continuing, you actually need to ascertain whether the complaints of spinal and hip pain that you feel appear only when you lie down, or in other conditions.
This is important because the pain that occurs is triggered by position, be it standing, sitting, walking, doing circular movements and so on, tends to be caused by muscle and bone disorders. While the pain that arises is not affected by position, or can appear at any time, the causes can have a wider range, ranging from nervous disorders, kidney disease, to urinary tract stones.
If you believe that it occurs only when you sleep, lying down straight or on your back is actually a better position than standing or sitting because in this position, your body is at least against the force of gravity. So if there is pain while in this position, it is most likely due to your sleeping mat. This condition can also be triggered by excessive physical activity, the habit of lifting heavy weights and so on.
So our advice to prove this, try to lie down on another base, such as a mattress or other better mattress. If you don't feel the complaint, then it is true that the problem is with your mattress. But if still, then try to re-check with another orthopedic specialist for a second opinion. Meanwhile, you can take painkillers prescribed by your doctor or by buying over-the-counter painkillers or ointments by reading the instructions for use listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
