Our expert says:
While it would be most desirable for you and your daughter to lose weight and such weightloss may help for your back pain, it is always essential that you have a medical examination if you suffer from chronic backache. Please have your gp examine you thoroughly to see if you have damaged your back or if there is another reason for this pain in your back (kidneys, or uterus, etc). Picking up a heavy child can strain the muscles in the back too, so discuss this with the dr when you go for your checkup.
I hope that you and your lassie can lose some weight and that you can pinpoint what is causing the backache.
