    I can feel my bones click at bottom of my back. Am in a lot of pain and can barely walk straight. The pain also go's round to my hip.I've been to the doctors twice in a matter of two weeks. I get pain killers which don't help. Some times I feel my back will collapse. They is a history of arthritis in the lower back in my family. Don't know if I can keep going on like this.

      Hello Dawn If you're unable to try the exercises described on this page, then you might benefit from seeing a local physiotherapist or chiropractor. Adjusting the range of motion in stiff joints and tissues can work wonders for back problems.

      Hello David There are many types of blood pressure tablets, all working in different ways, so I'd have to ask you to take a look at the Patient Information Leaflet that was inside the box. There should be a section headed "possible side effects".
