Can't overcome plateau

**Hi. I started the SCD on January 1st and then after a quick stall I switched to Paleo which was followed by an even quicker stall. I started at 239 and got down as low as 220. For the last 2 1/2 months my weight has fluctuated between 220-225.

I can't exercise due to some limitation. I used to go to the gym about 2 1/2 yrs ago but an old injury sidelined me. I damaged a vertebrae in my neck when I was 13 and over time it flattened and now it's pinching a nerve which affects my neck, back and arms. Also, due to a broken hip at birth I now have osteoarthritis and will eventually need a new hip. I walk my dog about an hour a day when the pain is not too bad but that's the only exercise I get.   

I've done everything I can think of dietwise to break this plateau: Cheat day, calorie restriction, calorie recycling. I now just started IF with Paleo. I keep read conflicting information regarding calories. I read that with Paleo you just need to eat to satiety and then other articles say you need to restrict calories and then other articles say to multiply your current body weight by 10 and eat that number in calories. Help! 

I currently weight 227 and am eating around 1800-2000 calories a day. I still feel hungry during my 8 hr feeding window. Should I eat more, stay with my current calories, or tough it out and eat less? Thank you!****
