Hi, I too suffer from low back pain and it causes problems in my legs too. I know the constipation is worse when the back is bad and vice versa. I did not have this issue until an injury 2 years ago also. So I think the bowel goes into spasm when you are in pain and the back muscles or nerves also control the bowel?
Okay so recently I have started having ridiculous pain in my legs. I went to the hospital yesterday and they said it was caused by my lower back. 2 years ago when this all started I was doing some very dumb stuff and could have very possible injured my lower back. Is it possible that I am only showing symptoms now? Could I have an undiagnosed back issue that is causing my constipation? I have had back pain over the past two years but it seems to come and go and not be a huge deal.
