I am an overweight person who is currently on a doet p[lan. I first noticed the lower back pain when i couldnt bend or get out of bed correctly. I have to roll myself out of bed like a ninja.
When i sit in a chair the pain stil was in the lower back but then now included the right but cheek. From there my right leg started to stiffe up. It not to the point where if i move the leg or try to lift it a pain radiates in my thigh bone.
I though it was just i hurt my back moving something. It been over 12n weeks and I'm not getting better. I go to the doctor for the pain and they push me to ibprofeun, right like that works. if it did then i wouldnt be there. I just wanted to know if this is something serious as my doctor does not seem to and the pain is getting worse for me.
This isn't caused by your obesity, thin people get sore backs too, but if you are also in poor condition that will certainly impede the healing. Adipose tissue has now been proved to be a source of inflammatory noxious toxins that can inflame the nerves as well as other organs, such as the linings of your arteries. If you want to get it off, look at our Weight loss page at C-H. It works, but it will mean a complete change in what you eat.
The fact that the pain in your back and leg are getting worse, after three months is worrying. Make an immediate start with the lower back exercises at C-H. Look in the NavBar on the left. EVERY MORNING BEFORE GETTING OUT OF BED.
Type "Slump Test" into the Search this site function at C-H and let me know what happens.
Meantime, sit less, lie down periodically and do the exercises, they only take one minute. Start using alternating ice and heat on your back daily. `
Your doctor obviously has no clue. Going on with ibuprofen for months will just you a bleeding ulcer to add to your misery. Honestly, he has no other options, other perhaps to send you for surgery.
It's time to start looking for a competent local chiropractor. Ask friends and family. Expect him to bully you about your weight. I would. It's a millstone around your neck that will not only impede the healing of your back, but also give you diabetes, arthritis in the knees, pain in the feet... I could add another ten.
Good luck, let me know how you get on in a couple months. Don't expect a quick fix, it's unlikely.
