Winks Sounds like you are committed. Stay Strong!!!
I too am on Day 5 and have experienced the same symptoms as you. Yesterday all the headache, back of neck ache and Cold symptoms left me and were replaced by strong lower back pain (sacrum and hips). I couldn't fall asleep until 3am. No matter how I moved, my lower back and hips hurt and my legs felt tight and wanted to move. I thought about taking a 3 am run through my neighborhood, but good sense prevailed and I toughed it out. Today it is much less intense.
I have noticed strange and ugly smells that appear and then disappear as suddenly as they came. They all smell like death, decay or in the case of what came out of me today, poison. I have heard this is common. I wonder if it is toxins leaving me or a more attuned sense of smell to what is around me. Whole Foods today smelled like Heaven!!!!
I am planning on going the full 10 days and then reassessing at that time. I may continue for 15 or 20 days or just come off at 10. I will decide this based on whether i am detoxing on Day 10 or not and I will see how my tongue is and whether or not I am really hungry. So far, I have grocery shopped for my family, taking them for meals at restaurants and made them meals, and I have yet to feel too tempted. The benefits of this cleanse are outweighing my habitual need to fill myself with comfort food. What a tremendous bonus of this cleanse!
Another detox symptom is that I am irritable. I had a temper tantrum in my car b/c my new headset is terrible and I just freaked out screaming at the headset and telling it I hated it!!!!!! Wow, that surprised me.
Oh well, hope everyone is plugging along and reaching their goals. Have a great Day!
