Thanks everyone for all your helpful and kind suggestions.I wont take the Chondritin I just had a few packets of powdered version but I only took it one day.It didnt help much anyway.Im taking some homeopathic backpain pills those rn't doing much either.Let me tell you sitting is excruciating!I am starting to appreciate health much more now.That I am totally sick,in pain and can barely move.
I am in mega pain now and feeling soooooo awful.I went off grains for only 3 days and that was before my back went crazy.I wasn't eating enough protein still.And I know I need to improve that.
Iwill be happy if I can just get off the beans and grains and get on the proteins.NOW that my body is rejecting áthe carbs and making my stomach sick when I eat it,not to mention giving me diarrhea. My back went out and I have been barely able to move around so I can't cook at this time,I have been living on terrible high carb foods,brown rice,rice cakes,chickpea curry someone made for me.It is making me feel so sick to my stomach and increasing my pain.I hate the way the brown rice is making me feel SIMPLY AWFUL. I feel ashamed I have been putting that in my system,my body clearly doesn't want that much grain.I heard somewhere that brown rice is not much more nutritionally valuable then white rice. I am going to avoid it.The only rice product I am going to have will be occasional rice milk and the rice protein powder since all the starch has been removed and I tolerate it when my stomach is to sick to down any other type pf protein.I FEEL ICKY! im craving protein severely but not able to sit up long enough to get to the store.I NEED MAJOR PAIN RELIEF,AT THIS POINT.I am trying to find áDC.
This back pain could be a symptom of detox, or it could be that all the starches you were eating were masking the pain. At any rate, have some of the beef broth whenever you can. It will help. It will also help you stay hydrated. When I'm sick I keep a thermos of broth by the bed and drink it whenever I can, along with rooibos tea when I get tired of the broth.
Also, if you have someone cooking for you, if they could make soft-cooked veggies, give those a try. Broccoli, collards or kale, carrots, green beans, zucchini, whatever you can eat that's a beneficial or frequent neutral, they will help. Soft cooking will make them more digestible.
If you are craving starches, try pumpkin or sweet potato. Both are good when mashed or pureed with some butter or ghee. Plain canned pumpkin is okay to use. You can also try parsnips. I've just started eating them again and they are good mashed with a little ghee. Soft-cooked carrots are also good mashed up with butter or ghee.
Hang in there. This will pass.

Accupunture... This would be first thing I would do even if I had to go to pawn shop with family treasures to pay for it... namaste ruthie
I agree with Ruthie. My back went totally out while cleaning the toilet. I could hardly move or turn over in bed. Three acupuncture treatments and I was a ready to go back to work. I had some minor lingering pain and took some BioAstin (astaxanthin) which supports joint function and the pain was gone. Now I take BioAstin whenever my back starts to hurt. (As a bonus, it also prevents sunburn for us sensitive A's) Read about it here http://www.nutrex-hawaii.com/main.html but you can find it cheaper on other sites. When I lived in Hawaii, I bought it at Costco.
Please please read Dr. Sarno's "Healing Back Pain" - after 12 years of terrible pain (and I was doing D'Adamo's diet) Sarno saved my life - and all for the cost of a book - after years of chiropractors (they do absolutely nothing - completely and utter nonsense) and MRIs etc etc, all the pain stemmed from the brain and stress. It is absolutely incredible.
ARe you a highly strung person who worries alot and tries to do everything right - perfectionist etc?? do you have alot of stress in your life??
The book will completely save you. All the dieting/supplements etc will do absolutely nothing - mere placebo affect. You will be ok and the pain will return with time.
