Many possibilities: If the low back pain does not go away, I advise you to see your PCP right away. Low back pain in a female can be due to back muscle, spine, gynecologic, intra-abdominal, or urinary tract source. Careful history and exam by the doctor should help elucidate the source.

For a 16-y-o young, gas-trapping in bowel is very uncommon except someone very inactive + drug abuse + poor dieting. So, seek evaluation and counseling so to pan out how to improve bowel regularity, chiefly by dietary modification, keeping active, rarely maybe needing laxative by mouth or suppository via rectum.

See a physician: The first step is to figure out what's causing your symptoms and it would be impossible to narrow down the diagnosis without more information and a physical exam. See a doctor to help figure out what's wrong!

Aney way to get rid of gas?

Aney way to get rid of gas?

Yes: Gas x has simethicone in it and strips are used for immediate effect. I do not think one works better than the other. Also when you eat, do it slowly, chew your food well. Avoid too much of starches and carbohydrates. Not aware of any dietary supplement helping gas. Probably fiber.
