Small,sore, tight bruises on lower back. Severe lower back pain. Histroy of a lot of water intake. Advice

I started drinking a lot of water on Monday to start a new heath regimen, when I usually only drink 1 or 2 bottles a day. Therefore was having frequent urination due to my increase of fluids. Then around noon on Monday, my lower back started to hurt, feeling like a muscle pain, this has continued all the way until today Wednesday. I noticed today that there are four small bruise going a long my lower back and it feels very tight and sore. I did not fall or hit it on anything. Any idea what could be going on?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back and the muscle pain that you are having is due to electrolyte imbalance. The sudden loss of excessive fluid and electrolytes from the body has caused this pain. Electrolyte rich fluids will help in reducing the pain.
