ok I am new to this board so hell everyone, I am a 23 year old male, I have been heavy all my life, not morbidly obese but a big guy as I am about 375, 6'2, my height really helps with my weight, about 3 years ago I threw my back out for the first time to the point where I couldnt move off the couch, I couldnt do anything, I got throught that and it happened again last year, same thing, major pain throughout my lower back and hips to the point that I couldnt move but again I healed and I was fine. One thing I have always told myself is hey I may be fat but at least I am still mobile, I can still walk and get around good, but here about 2-3weeks ago I was at walmart with my wife and not even 5 minutes into the store I had to rush back to the car because my lower back was hurting me so bad I felt like I was going to fall down, I could barely hold myself, it was just awful. It happened a couple more times since then and I just thought it would go away, but today I was taking out my garbage, and you have to walk a little ways to get to the bin, and by the time I reached it I was in so much pain I could barely lift my trash up, sweating horribly and did not know if I could make it back to my apartment, I was in so much pain in my lower back and shooting down my hips, it took every ounce of energy I had just to walk back and immediatly hit the couh when I came in and started typing this, is this a weight inssue? Or have I messed up my back a couple of years ago when I had my first problems? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks

i have the exact same problems. it is more than likely sciatica.... which is horrible. im 25, and i have been heavy off and on all my life as well. I had two kids, and in this process i gained weight also.. im just over 270 at this point and 5foot 6in...so i could lose some weight, but i cant even walk a tenth of a mile without thinking im going to die... i break out in total sweat, everything ceases up, bad headache comes over me, and i just feel like im broken....this is a problem i have in my everyday life....i take naproxin 800s and im fine, so its nerve pain, the sciatic nerve is the biggest nerve in the body...
