cant lie flat

Hi Doc

I am obese. 1.65cm 140 kg and im 43. I have been this weight for the last 2 years - trying my best to lose it. Lost 23 and gained know how it goes.

The last 6 months or so i''''ve noticed that if i lie flat on my back (i am fine while in that position) but when I turn to left or right side my top half of my body rolles over easily however the bottom part right in my middle bottom back nearly goes "  lame"  it''''s very sore and sometimes i feel like i wont be able to turn.

If i take cataflam i am much better - but it''''s going on to long now....

Do i need to go see someone of just loose weight?

You should seriously endeavour to lose weight and take up some activity such as swimming or walking. Exercise advice from a biokineticist will also prove to your advantage. Anti-inflammatories on the long term can do more harm than good!!!
