anacara Posted November 29, 2013 Share Posted November 29, 2013 Hi there. I'm on day 17 and everything was going pretty well, even in the early days. I'd stopped consuming refined sugar in any form a few weeks before starting which I think made it all easier. Then, this morning, I woke up with bad muscle pain in my hips and thighs which became almost excruciating and has been with me on and off all day. The only other time I've ever had something similar (apart from muscle pains caused by the flu) was earlier this year when I was attempting a few days fasting (I often do some intermittent fasting and I wanted to try a longer fast), and I had the same thing on the fourth day of the fast and had to give up. I really don't want to give up the Whole30 before I've finished - I've actually been enjoying it - and I was thinking of making it a WholeUntilXmas, but I don't know what to do. The things I've tried today are: - eating a banana (for the potassium) - taking magnesium supplements - dissolving some salt in my mouth They might have helped a little, but the pain - although not as intense as at other times today - is still present. In case it might be related, the starchiest thing I'd had since I started was the sweet potato I had last night. Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas as to solutions? I'm worried that I could somehow cause some damage.Any advice would be much appreciated!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
