If my ongoing left sided abdominal, side, and back pain gets worse after a bowel movement is that a problem in the colon?

See a GI dr for a thorough evaluation.

In brief: Checkup

Left sided abdominal and side pain that worsens after a bm does suggest colon problems.
It could be muscular, but you should have this checked by your pcp who would arrange proper tests.
