Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Is your husband overyweight. Even if he is not, its would be better if you be on the top and not cause unnecessary discomfort to your body. Also visit a general physician and get yourself examined, just to be safe. Also since you are 58 now, its good to have regular examinations and some tests done , atleast once an year.

thanks for choosing health care magic.You need an examination by a your doctor.Mostly as you are having symptoms in particular position it must be muscular pain but looking to your age some basic work up is advisable.If you are having difficulty in breathing while doing other routine or strenuous work,taking stairs etc then cardiac evaluation becomes mandatory.Sex itself is big exercise if your comfortable in other positions means there are no major issues.But prevention is better then cure so visit your doctor.
