lower back pain while laying down

i have a strange pain which i'd like to figure out. if i lay flat on my back for about 10 minutes, i get an immense pain in the lower middle of my back. as the minutes pass, the pain gets much worse. the minute i get up and move around it goes away. if i prop myself up (like i do while watching TV in bed) i can lay for hours with no pain. i never sleep on my back, so this issue has never lost me sleep. its just confusing and i'd like to know what it is. a clue may be in the fact i've never been able to touch my toes while stretching, even after practicing yoga for a few months. people always say a toe-touching stretch should be felt in the hamstrings, but i always feel it in the back - right in the same spot i have my pain while lying down. any ideas?

The built-in arch stabilizer provides support for greater stability. In addition Tuli's Stay Fresh Fabric is made with bacteria and fungus inhibitors which reduce unwanted odors.
