I'm just looking to see if anyone else has had similar pains to what I'm experiencing. I've talked to the dr numerous times and they aren't much help. It's like they don't believe me...Let me give you a little background on myself first...In high school, I was 110lbs and then a few years later found myself in a desk job where I started gaining some weight. Before I got married in 2007, I was able to diet and lose some weight. Not all that I wanted to, but definitely enough to be happy with myself. I think at the time I got married, I was weighing in at 135 then. Gained a little weight after the wedding, but still looked fine. Then, I got pregnant and gained another 65lbs. I was so hungry all the time, I just couldn't curb my appeitite....I had a very, very rough labor so it took awhile for me to start moving around again. Also, I had a Mirena inserted which punctured my uterus and went completely through so I was in pain ALL THE TIME!! Once the doctor finally listened to me and removed it, I thought Great! Now I can really get going on this weight loss. Nope! 18 months later and I still havent lost a pound no matter what I do.... But my question is, has anyone else noticed significant pain in their lower back, hips, legs and feet since having a baby or epidural? (Or even if you had problems like I did with the Mirena) I've been wondering if this was due to being overweight (Which I'm sure has something to do with it. ) But, I was thinking pain from being overweight would be more in the knees or possibly ankles... I thought maybe the more I moved around, my body would get used to it, but it never does, it hurts more...(and this is over a years time). So aside from being disgusted with myself all the time, I'm constantly in pain...ANYONE out there feeling like me?
