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.

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

Possible Ileus: For how long have these symptoms been going on? Has he had a bowel movement recently? If more than several days have gone thru without having a bowel movement or passing gas/flaturlence, then one must suspect an ileus which is basically a freezing of the bowels. If not addressed urgently, it could lead to perforation. Sometime after surgery many years back causes adhesions to form in the bowel ...Read more

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
