    Just wondering if anyone gets dull and burning pain in one of their kidneys when they are in ketosis? I've been going really great this week on induction (second time over )but I have an annoying dull pain and burn in my right side and mid to lower back.
    I've also started jogging so I don't know if its muscular but when it got bad this evening, I was reaching a dark purple on the tester strips which I have never had at all since I originally started Atkins last Feb.
    Just wondering if anyone has had similar problem and don't worry - I will go to the Doc!
    Appreciate any input you guys might have.
