Is back pain a symptom of detox?

I don't know how else to explain this horrific pain...?


  • It could be. I get pain in my back often, from my kidneys, when I'm detoxing—especially if I'm dehydrated.

    Drink LOTS of water to help flush the toxins out of your kidneys.

    If the pain persists, it might be a kidney infection or you could have a kidney stone ~ those aren't fun. Keep hydrated! I hope you feel better soon.

    I had horrible lower back pain when i quit coffee cold turkey. It felt like I'm beeing cut in half with a saw. It lasted for over a week. My legs, thighs, hips hurt as well. It was awefull.

    Hope you feel better!

    I used to have recurring lower back pain and sciatica, although they were certainly not related to food or detox. What works best for me is yoga, next best is exercise/stretching.

  • Did you do something that could have spurred this on?

  • I recently completed a 3 week juice fast and I had horrible kidney/upper back pain...especially while driving. I actually came off of the fast due to the pain, increased my raw veggies and pain gone....def. a detox symptom.

  • that is a long time to be on a juice fast
