HCG injections has some side effects like pain at site of injection,headache,fatigue however it has not been reported to cause back ache you may want to check with your dr about doing an MRI to rule out herniated disc that may be causing that for you before discontinuing your HCG.
It is better to continue a program without HCG.

I hope you get better soon
