Although my doctor said that it will, I doubt if losing weight will help my back pain. However, I do believe that regular exercise and stretching helps. Whether I weigh 100 or 400 pounds, the damage to my lower back, can't be corrected without surgery, and I'm not interested in any type of surgery. But I do believe that weight-loss will help the pain from my Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. I have lots of inflammation in my muscles, joints, and tissues due to the MCTD, and I think losing weight will help with the pain in my knees and ankles.
