What should I take??

I am 21 years old, I'm about 5'2 and I only weigh about 98 pounds. I have a herniated disc in my lower back. My doctor has told me that he thinks that if I gain a little weight, it may help with the pain and discomfort with my back. Which I agree, I would absolutly love to gain about 10-15 pounds. I think it would make me feel so much better about myself too. I have always been a 'small' person. I have an office job, and all I do is eat, but I cannot seem to gain any weight what so ever. Anyway, my doctor suggested that I should take vitamins, but I dont really know the difference between all of them. Can some please suggest something?

Re: What should I take??

chelle...vitamins will not make you gain weight. You could try some of the weight gainers at the health food stores. When i used to be tall and skinny i took those gainer powders with whole milk and bananas with peanut butter all mixed together and it helped over time...
