I have been in this not so merry-go-round or Dr. appointments for years. And really I am sick of it. Like most of you all I have been to a g.i. that said well maybe we should look at the other end, then drink this, do that, then said well you are depressed and stressed and quit eating chocolate. Well really after so may years I have just figured out what to eat and drink, and what not to. Some times I really lose control when I am to busy of just forgetfull/lazy enough to not make that bowl of fruit and have some salad that I can still flair up and when that happens my low back just hurts like no other. Is this common to anyone? I just went to the dr. and did lots of internet searching myself and have found that the nerves in you colon/bowles and the nerves in your brain are one in the same and that effexor and venlafazine has been working with great results. I know an anti-depress sounds like a stress thing but the more digging I do the more this seems worth a try. Any comments/questions just looking for some one else out there that may relate. It seems not only like constipation but finally when I do catch up with proper eating then I will get rid of everything, then actually be empty and then my insides really seem like they start to eat themselves and the pain is almost as bad as being backed up. I really want to figure this out not for me but my son is 12 and he has been having bowel issues as well but was always to embarrased to admit it until I started to talk about it more openly and he, after watching him for a few months, is following right in dads footsteps.

Hello there. I to suffer from low back pain. All of my colon seems to hurt, but predominately lower right, I get sharp, stabbing pains. My back really aches lower right constantly, I play hockey so when it gets really bad I go to my osteopath and she relieves it for a while. My BM's alternate between D & C, more C though, I also sometimes feel nauseated and suffer from very noisy bowels. I've seen a GI Specialist, had a Barium Enenema, u/sound scan, blood work etc, all of whcih showed nothing and he agrees with my Doctor that it is a form of IBS. My Mum died of bowel cancer 3 years ago, so I worry like the rest us IBS sufferers.

I have had IBS-C for over 25 years and have just started with extremely painful flareups the last year. The last two months I have also had terrible lower back pain. I don't know why it started all of the sudden. Maybe because the stomach pain is much worse than I've had in the past. I'm very frustrated at this point about all of it! Right now every kind of food is triggering the pain. arggg...
