Had lower back pain x 1 wk. Also in buttocks. Better now but not gone.. Now have tingling down one leg. Should it improve since back is improving

It may improve...: Most cases of back pain will improve, especially with conservative therapies. However, the tingling down the leg indicates a nerve issue, the severity of which can only be determined with diagnostic testing such as MRI and/or EMG (best done 8 wks after symptom onset).

Can constipation cause a sensation down the side of your legs and lower back pain (right above buttocks) ?

Can constipation cause a sensation down the side of your legs and lower back pain (right above buttocks) ?

Yes, I think so.: Severe constipation changes the way your organs fit together and that can create pressure on nerves that connect with other nerves. So the pain can pop up in places you don't expect. Get this cleared out as soon as you can by seeing a doctor for treatment or prescription. From then on - keep yourself from getting so blocked. Good luck. ...Read more
