A member asked:

Have chronic low back pain. no diagnosis. hurts worse when gassy or have bowel movement. it's not colon issues. what else could this be?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Diagnostic injection: Most back pain is either discogenic or facetogenic. That is either from your disc or the joints in your lower back. A less common cause is the sacroiliac joint. An MRI is useful if not done. After MRI history and physical exam diagnostic X-ray guided blocks can give you a diagnosis and lead to specific treatment .
