MY LOWER BACK / RIGHT SIDE IS HURTING. HURTS WHEN I TRY TO SLEEP ON THE SIDE

ME: MORBIDLY OBESE, BORDERLINE CHOLESTEROL, BORDERLINE DIABETIC. MONITORING MY BLOOD SUGAR DAILY MORNING AND AFTER WORK. . . WHEN I DRINK SODA, BLOOD SUGAR IS NORMAL, WHEN I AVOID SUGARS AND CARBS, MY BLOOD SUGAR SPIKES GIVING ME A RED (HIGH) READING. DIFFICULT TO LOSE WEIGHT, HIGHLY STRESSED AT HOME AND WORK.

PROBLEM: MY LOWER BACK / RIGHT SIDE IS HURTING. EVERY TIME I GET OUT OF BED OR TRY TO ADJUST MYSELF IN BED. HURTS WHEN I TRY TO SLEEP ON THE SIDE. LEGS AND FEET FEEL ITCHY AS WELL AFTER I GET INTO BED (RESTLESS LEGS). SOMETIMES I DO NOT EMPTY MY BLADDER WHEN I URINATE AND HAVE TO GO TO THE RESTROOM MORE OFTEN. i KNOW I HAVE TO GO, I FEEL THE NEED, BUT IT WON’T GO.

Hi..
Thanks for the query.

Obesity is one of the common cause for backache due to heavy body weight..
This causes too much strain over the muscles and backbone..
Also pain can be related to any compressed nerve, collapsed discs or muscular problems that needs to be evaluated with clinical examination, x ray and MRI Scan..
Also you should consult a Dietician and start following a diet plan to loose weight and also start exercise under supervision of a Certified Physician Trainer.

Hope this helps..

Secondly for the urination problem and as you are diabetic too a proper urinalysis and a renal ultrasound should be done..
