What causes this? I've had this issue for a long time where I'll be on my feet and it feels like I'm carrying a bunch of extra weight. I'll have to sit down for 5 minutes or so to get it to go away.

Probably sitting in the chair too much posting on bitog.

Sitting in chair is harder on back than standing.


Seriously though.. no one here is going to give you Doctor advice.. suggest you go see one.

Maybe a better question for a Doctor and not a Oil forum.

I had a similar feeling a few years ago. There were times that it felt like I had concrete blocks on my feet! I would be out of breath . I went to the doctor thinking I may have some heart problems. After some tests it turned out I had an under active thyroid. I'm on daily medication and feel fine I suggest you see your doctor. An under active thyroid can cause a lot of other serious problems the longer it goes untreated.

Sounds like fatigue.

As already said get yourself to your Doctor.

Do you take a multivitamin with minerals?

How are your ab muscles? Your abs support your back a good bit. Make sure you bend your knees and tighten your abs when lifting.

You gotta work on your glutes. Really common that most people have weak glutes and their back compensates. +1 on whoever said to work on your core as well.
