In brief: 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.
