    I feel your pain. I suffer from Sciatica too but it usually gets better if I'm just a few pounds lighter, however its agony at the moment. Ever since losingg some weight I have been unable to sit or get comfortable.

    I read somewhere that a side effect of detoxing can be the reappearance of old aches and pains so perhaps its something to do with that.

    I'm hoping it'll ease soon - fingers crossed for the pair of us xx

    I suppose it's because the back muscles are having to perform differently. Having less weight to cart about is going to have an impact on all our bones

    I suffer back pain and swear by T.E.N.S machine. You can get a basic one in Lloyds pharmacy for about £15. This really does help me. Hope you get some relief soon.

    I have suffered with my back since I was 13, I usually have either accupuncture, use my tens machine or the inversion table when it plays up, I have been in more pain the last 10 days and just put it down to one of those things, but on reading your posts above maybe it is to do with the diet.

    Mine usually eases when I lose weight but haven't had that yet :-(

    hi,
    I have had back ache for a month or so now and attending physio about it. She told me that it is because of losing the weight so fast the muscles don't know how to respond. They got used to doing it one way and now they have to work harder to keep up. So according to her Determined girl was right on the money.
    Physio said it should settle once the weight loss slows or settles. She did also say the vibro plate was very good for helping with any back problems.
