Back Pain When You Go With Bowel Movements?

Back Pain When You Go With Bowel Movements?

Most of my issues are gastrointestinal, but i notice if I go even just a day without a bowel movement I have severe lower back pain. Anyone relate?

I totally relate. I’m having the problem as we speak. IBS with constipation doesn’t mix well with diverticulitis and diverticulosis. My roommate and both ended up in the hospital due to that, low potassium and magnesium. He unfortunately has a narrowing of the esophagus which makes it tough for him to eat anything but soft food. It is totally debilitating and we end up in bed. He’s prescribed 4 medications to make him go and I have 3. It’s like we have to overdose to finally go.

I get intense pain in my back from my bowels. It's a dull constant ache if I'm constipated, and intense searing pain when i have diarrhea. Always on my right side.

You should get it checked. It could be heart or Gi related. Both of which landed me in the hospital, once with pericrditis, and the other with a bowel perforation

I actually have some. I was cleaning out my tea area in my cabinet and found 3 teabags. One of my constipated friends must have given it to us. I’m being silly about it. I get to a point where I feel so physically bad that I start cracking jokes.
