Not normal : Many things can cause your symptoms (adhesions, colon issues, anal issues, endometriosis, etc) but clearly, it is not normal to have "severe" pain with bms. See your md asap for evaluation. If the pain is truly severe and getting worse you may need to go to er. ...Read more

Get evaluated!: At 18, these are unusual complaints. I am concerned that you have a significant nerve compression, especially with the low back pain with standing, and the bladder and bowel inconsistency. Please get this evaluated by a physician immediately. ...Read more

3weeks after i had caesarian delivery and I have bad abdominal pain, lower back pain, gas, and loose bowel movement.... Is this normal after?

Not normal: Most complications from a c-section occur within the first two weeks or so. It could be unrelated to the cesarean, and just be a temporary intestinal virus. As long as the pain is not severe, and you are staying hydrated, you can follow the brat diet (bananas rice applesauce toast) for a couple of days and see if it improves on its own before calling your obstetrician. ...Read more

It's been two weeks since period. Cramping and lower back pain and spotting for a week. Blood from vagina after bowel movement. Periods are not heavy.

Check a pregnancy: test. If negative, wait a week and check it again. You need at least 2. Then go to GYN or family doctor to make sure you do not have a bladder infection or vaginal infection, which could cause the discharge above. If everything is clear, then you may need to wait for your period to reset, whatever the triggering event was. Be patient. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Hemmorhoids: People present after surgery with pain and this can actually be the issue preventing a normal bowel movement. There are dietary, behavioral, hygiene modifications as well as procedures that can help these common problems. It is best if you consult with your surgeon to help with ruling out other issues like an infection or a fissure. Also fiber and or laxatives may help at this point or sitz baths. ...Read more

What does frequent bowel movement together with lower back pain indicate?

GI ISSUES AND PAIN: These symptoms could have totally independent origins such as irritable bowel disease co-existing with lumbar degenerative disk disease. However, you should check for changes in the color of the stools and if it seems oily as these my indicate problems arising from the gall bladder and/or the pancreas which may give both symptoms. You should follow up with pcp asap for evaluation and work up. ...Read more

Why do I get bad lower back pain when I need a bowel movement. ?

Unity of structure: Your body is one unit. Your intestines hang from your lower back. There is overlap in nerve supply. People who are chronically constipated can easily get back pain. As precaution, If you have other medical problems, or a family history of colon cancer, get checked out by a doc in person. Make sure you've had a recent gyn exam too. I hope you feel better. ...Read more
