Constipation: Relationship between the muscles and nerves that control back & bladder functions and those that control bowel movements can cause this. Bladder and the colon are close together in the body. Large amounts of stool in the colon can put pressure on the bladder which can cause the bladder to not fill as much as it should, or cause the bladder to contract when the bladder is not supposed to contract. ...Read more

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 . ...Read more

IF you were: Severely constipated and passing hard stool the bleeding could be due to hemorrhoid inflammation. However, i would be just as concerned about why you got so severely backed up. You need to get thoroughly evacuated and probably should have a colonoscopy if you haven't had one recently. ...Read more
