LUQ burning type pain, worse with movement a lot of the time. Also in back sometimes. Saw GI who said it's just constipation. Could that be right?

LUQ burning type pain, worse with movement a lot of the time. Also in back sometimes. Saw GI who said it's just constipation. Could that be right?

Possibly.: However, there are many other things that can cause pain in the LUQ. Stomach dysmotility (also called gastroparesis), gastritis, and inflammation of the pancreas are just a couple of the possible issues. It may also be a musculoskeletal problem as it is worse with movement. This needs to be evaluated further with blood work and diagnostic imaging if it continues or worsens. ...Read more

More details: It's not clear where the surgery was performed, but if in the lumbar spine area there may be a relationship, although an understanding of what transpired leading up to the discectomy would be helpful.

I have opiate induced constipation. Can this cause burning in my lower to mid level back? I am in the process of getting dentures and also do not have teeth to chew my food. I am concerned that something seriously is wrong I am a 38 yr old mother of a you

Constipation/pain: constipation can cause back pain, but the combination of no teeth and opiods is trouble for your colon. There is a drug Movantik that you take once daily that blocks the constipation causing effects of opiods on the colon, but it is pretty expensive.
the only way to be sure there is nothing wrong is to undergo colonoscopy ...Read more

Many answers: That question can't be answered in 400 characters. You need to be evaluated by your doctor with a thorough history, physical exam, a trial of conservative therapy, and possibly an mri. There are many, many pathologies that can cause what you are describing. Most will heal on their own, some will require surgery. Some are no big deal, some are dangerous. See you doctor about it. ...Read more

Colonoscopy: If you have pain after colonoscopy and full work up is normal: was a biopsy done? What did it show? Was the CT done with contrast? What did it show?

1 1/2 month constant,left lower back around to front ache, tight sometimes burning feeling. At night too.CT of ab/pelv are normal.Nothing relieves it.

Could be from spine?: If it is worse with movement, bending, lifting, coughing or sneezing, it may be from a disc or bone spur in your lumbar spine pinching a nerve. Burning pain usually means a nerve is the cause, esp. w/ numbness +/- tingling. This location may be the upper lumbar spine. Low back causes usually better lying down. MRI could provide more details, and you may also investigate cause at PainSpot.com ...Read more

Can tight pants be the cause of constipation ? Whenever its too tight my insides hurt.

Cause=No: If you are constipated, the colon is loaded with stool, but due to its elastic nature, it has accommodated to the stretching of it already. Increasing abdominal pressure with constricting pants pushes its elasticity over the edge and now it will cause pain from the increased stretch on the wall of the colon-hopefully prompting you to take measures to evacuate it! ...Read more

I had very hot burning sensation when i pass stool. I am having constipation also and its semi liquid and very less in amount. I had spicey food last.

I had very hot burning sensation when i pass stool. I am having constipation also and its semi liquid and very less in amount.
I had spicey food last.

Hot food to blame: Almost everyone has had that experience after eating unusual or spicy foods. It is typically self-limited and passes after a day or two. This would usually be associated with loose stool (I'm confused by you saying you are constipated and have semi-liquid stool). If burning persists, or you have rectal bleeding or mucus you should seek medical attention as this could be early proctitis/colitis. ...Read more
