Hi, I am new here. I just finished reading the Primal Blueprint book and started eating a PB diet one week ago. I'm a 34 year old female with about 30 pounds to loose. I don't have any health problems (that I am aware of). I've been keeping a food journal on fitday.com this week and counting calories and carbs. I know I have been staying in the 50-100 g carb range this week as recommended in the book, which is significantly less than what I had been eating. I have not been doing any exercise yet because I am recovering from a sprained ankle from three weeks ago, but I plan to soon. Anyway, everything has been going fine until last night I noticed my lower back was kind of achy. Then all day today it has been aching very much, kind of on and off, but mostly on. Very uncomfortable. I freaked out a little bit earlier today thinking it was my kidneys hurting or something but then I realized my kidneys are more in the middle of my back and this ache is definitely more lower back just below my waist and on both sides of my back, but more pronounced on the left. I can't think of any reason why my back would ache, like I said, no exercise recently, and it doesn't feel like muscle, more an internal ache. I did some google searches on back ache and low carb and found lots of other people claiming to have the same symptoms after starting a low carb diet but no answers on what could be the cause. Has anyone else on here ever experienced something similar? I just don't know whether I should be concerned or not, or even if this is really related to low carb but I thought I would ask because I am worried.
No announcement yet.
Lower back ache related to low carb??
