Woke up today with really intense back pains and chills (no fever.) Wondered if I had acidosis and tried drinking vinegar. Pain was much improved and chills gone a few hours after drinking vinegar but my doc still sent me to the ER where all my results came back totally NORMAL. My urine pH was also exactly 7.0 - close to ideal! Saliva not tested. Only weird thing was I had ketones in my urine. Still have lingering back pain but overall feeling ok.

Started to wonder if this sudden severe back pain really was caused by vitamin C as I had two episodes of severe pain both immediately after taking 4000+mg of vitamin C. I wonder if my SIBO could be interfering with my absorption somehow and lowering my tolerance. Strange that I didn't have diarrhea, which I've heard is usually the first symptom of vitamin C overdose.

My doctors are totally baffled by the pain in my back, which got worse after eating (acidic foods) and the fact that vinegar helped my pain. I'm not really sure how to explain it to them, either. It doesn't help that my regular doctors are all on vacation so all the docs I've seen are people I've never met before. Still not really sure what this all means in the context of my chronic health issues.

Sorry, I think you misunderstood me when I said I didn't see any improvement in my condition. I meant that I didn't see improvement in my UTI symptoms when taking Iodine so it must not actually be a UTI. Turns out I do not have a UTI so you were right.

I have already been fighting with chronic conditions for more than two years (much shorter than some) but I am not ready to give up the fight. If it takes 6 months, 12 months, or even 12 years to heal, I will do whatever it takes. I refuse to let my body go to waste just because the doctor doesn't know what's wrong, and I am profoundly grateful for your help.
