pdecks Posted February 28, 2013 Share Posted February 28, 2013 Hi all, I first started my first Whole30 on Feb 8, but I restarted this past Sunday after having some wine and a slice of sugary birthday cake celebrating a friend's bday Saturday night. All this week, as well as earlier in my first Whole30 trial, I have experienced back pain in the middle of my back. I haven't been sleeping completely soundly, either. In the first 2.5 weeks, I hadn't been sleeping enough (only 6-7hrs, interrupted) because of the responsibilities I have at home in addition to my full-time job. The past two days, I started taking some Calcium-Magnesium Citrate supplements that I already had in my medicine cabinet. The past two mornings, I have also had urgent bowel movements (though this morning's might have been triggered by a too-spicy batch of Rogan Josh that I had for dinner last night). I woke up at 1:30 a.m. today with terrible back pain and had to move to the couch to fall back asleep. All though I feel somewhat rested, my back is killing me. I almost never experience back pain, aside from the occasional (1x every 2 years) wrong move that pulls a muscle. I should add that I've been keeping my physical activity light -- walking only, but I walk to/from work and walk our two greyhounds, so it adds up to 5-7 miles a day. I had been doing a bit of strength training at home before then, but I just don't have the time right now with my added cooking responsibilities. Thoughts?
