The typical symptoms of constipation are: infrequent bowel movements but this varies by every individual, and pain or difficulty when trying to pass stool. Actually it is not common for constipation and lower back pain to be linked, but it really does happen. However, in the majority of cases, the symptoms of constipation are less severe and usually the result of recent binging upon greasy foods and alcohol or perhaps a reaction to a new medication. Generally, constipation passes within a day or two and regularity restored. However, there are times when back pain constipation occur at the same time and thus probably linked. In such cases, the constipation is probably not the result of some short term problem and will not go away on its own. Back pain and constipation commonly linked due to fecal impaction.

The appearance of abdominal cramps with constipation problem will show at least a mild fecal impaction and this form where your large intestines and rectum meet (a narrow passage in the gastrointestinal tract where it is easy for blockages to form.) Once a blockage forms, it will be impossible for solid waste to get beyond that point and will therefore cause a build-up of feces and the build-up causes by the fecal impaction will eventually begin to exert pressure upon your abdomen and eventually the lower back as well. In some cases this can cause a serious amount of pain and discomfort. Therefore, the longer the fecal impaction blocks feces from evacuation, the more intense your back pain constipation will become until it can be released by a bowel movement.

Even milder fecal impactions are hard to treat with laxatives as the feces will tend to cling to the sides of the intestines, rectum and colon.

Even milder fecal impactions are difficult to treat with laxatives as the feces will tend to cling to the sides of the intestines, rectum, and colon. Laxatives will in fact help lessen your back pain and constipation, but it is likely another blockage will form soon unless all the feces is purged from the gastrointestinal tract including the feces clinging to the walls. If the feces is not removed, both the back pain and constipation will return as soon as another fecal impaction forms.

Probably enemas are more effective than laxatives when treating blockages caused by fecal impaction because they can cleanse further up into the gastrointestinal tract. Unfortunately, their effectiveness tends to be limited to the bottom part of the colon but they do cleanse the walls as well so they remain more effective than laxatives when relieving back pain constipation.

Back pain constipation is caused by a fecal impaction which has created a blockage within your bowels. The blockage must be eradicated and a colon cleanser can do exactly that. A colon cleanse can be self-administered and will take away the blockage and the feces clinging to the walls so that chances of future back pain constipation problems are greatly reduced. However, be sure to purchase a colon cleanse product made with all natural ingredients because products made with synthetic ingredients can lead to serious side effects. Once the fecal impaction has been removed and the back pain constipation removed, be sure to periodically use an all natural colon cleanser product to keep the gastrointestinal tract clean and back pain constipation problems at bay.
