    I have been having very bad back, and hip pain with some mild neck pain, so at my last appt. I told my dr. and she pescribed me physical therapy, saying if it hurts now it will only get worse with the increasing weight gain, so I start that in a couple of weeks i hope it helps. It hurts to walk, sit, stand, or lay...cant wait to get some relief.
