See your Doctor


Question is vague. Any change in stool caliber? Any weight loss? You need to have blood work and probably a colonscopy and ct scan thorax. Do you or have you ever smoked? Do you have cough? Of course, these symptoms may be nothing but without knowing you, and you seem concerned, I would advise going to your pcp for evaluatin. Do not worry, but seek help.

Many times if the child is constipated there will be a bit of blood from an anal fissure ( cut) . Sometimes it may mean some viral infection. Sometimes it may mean a food intolerance/allergy. Please see your pediatrician, and bring a stool sample.

Maybe related or not


Certain colorectal problems such as ulcerative colitis, proctitis, crohn's disease, cancer, acute diverticulitis can cause lower back pain and blood in stool. But they may not be related--hemrroids, fissures, diverticular bleed, cancer can cause blood in stool and not likely causing back pain. So, without more info it is difficult to tell what you have. Consult doc. Good luck

Something stinky!


These are 2 common independent issues people seek evaluation. This could be coincidental or the back pain is leading to constipation or Vice versa &there is now bleeding from a hemmoroid. This could also be something happening within your GI tract causing both the back pain & blood or even due to taking anti inflammatory medication for your back pain which could be a reason for blood.

Depends


If it has only been going on for less than 48 hours, and promptly goes away, then you may have a gastrointestinal virus. In this situation blood loss, electrolyte imbalances, and dehydration are the major concerns. If you have been having these symptoms for weeks or months, these could be signs of something serious like cancer. I recommend visiting your doctor for a full evaluation.

You don't mention any other symptoms, but the fact of the matter is that this is NOT normal and should not have gone on this long without an evaluation with CT SCAN and or colonoscopy. See a specialist and hopefully you have not waited too long to do so

Changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, and rectal bleeding are all potential warning signs of colon and rectal cancer. Don't mess around, see a Gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy examination.
