Hi,
Has anyone had/have problems with joint stiffness and in particular back stiffness. I'm trying to walk for about 1 hour a day as part of my losing weight plan, (if you can call it that) but annoyingly have been getting quite stiff in the lower back. It may be that I'm over-doing it but just wondered if it is common.

I get very bad pain in the lower back, but towards the side, may be just my gait or general unfitness though!
