My lower back has a deep curve inward, this causes my back to hurt when laying flat on the ground or trying to do abdominal excersies.

It could be genetics. Females in my family on my mom's side all have wide hips and deep curve-I could feel like I'm laying flat and my fiancee can put his muscular arm right under me. It just got worse as I got pregnant and hurts now that I carry her so much. I have to lean back far while holding her just so I don't tip over. It's hard and don't know if this helps any but this is my experience on it.

Thanks everyone! I have an appointment with my doctor to see about getting a referral to a chiropractor or physical therapist. I think i might have to get an MRI first though.

I am a Physical Therapist. There can be a number of reasons that you have in increased lumbar lordosis. I highly recommend that you see your physician and seek a referral to a local PT. Uncorrected it can lead to significant low back pain, degeneration of the discs and even bulging discs. Being 22, you should have great success with targeted exercise. Good luck!

hey the curve in your back has to do with you lumbar region of your spinal bones & your mucles that are attached to it - id advise you to see your GP to if the can halp hun.

I had scoliosis, it's where you have a curvature of the spine. It hurt allll the time to lay down or to stand up straight sometimes. We went to the doctor who took x-rays. But I would definitely see a doctor asap!

Yes I did have an epidural. So I wondering if that has anything to do with it? I am not sure I just know it hurts and I cannot lay on my back on a flat surface.

Thanks. I took a look at the link and it sounds exactly like my back. I was just trying to find out, because I am currently trying to lose weight and it is so hard to crunches or anything that involves me laying on my back on a flat hard surface.

Depends if your currently pregnant then its your muscles ( round ligaments ) that have relaxed and your back adjusted to accompany the added weight. When the muscles start to relax you also get the preggie waddle as I call it, it's your bodies center readjusting.
