Right lower back pain
Anon_10017 posted:
When I lay on my back I get really bad pain in my right side of my lower back. I do exercise everyday but I still have 20 pounds to loss. The pain is worst when my 2 yr old son lays on top of me. Also if i lay on my stomach I get bad back pain when I get up. My doctors says it is bad posture but I think my posture is fine.

I would continue to pursue this with your primary doctor if your pain continues.

It wasn't until my friend suggested using a different mattress, though it hasn't resolved the problem entirely, it has helped!
