Low back pain, rectal pressure

Trying to find out if rectal pressure can be due to low back pain. Today the low back pain got really strong, and while so, the rectal pressure got bad. I've only had the low back pain since March, I've had the rectal pressure since december.

Re: Low back pain, rectal pressure

Lower back pain can cause a lot of different ailments, but you said you had the rectal pressure before it. Have you seen a Dr., mostly a GI Dr. to find out what might be causing it?

Do you have any other symptoms like constipation or a very full feeling after you eat? Think you need to see your Dr. and ask what it could be as many symptoms mimic other problems. These two could or could not be related. plus the rectal pressure may be causing the lower back problem.

Best wishes...JJ....

Re: Low back pain, rectal pressure

Did you visit your doctor? Above is the best advice as these may not be linked but you'll never know until you go to the doctor

Re: Low back pain, rectal pressure

There are a lot of benign conditions that can cause rectal pain/pressure. I have to agree, this is something you want to check out with your doc.

Re: Low back pain, rectal pressure

My GI doctor said to go back to my gynecologist and I haven't done so yet. I am not having constipation or anything like that. I did have a rectrocele repair back in July but I know it's not prolapsed again. My bowel movements are fine. My lumbar area is very tender in the lower part, it is causing pain even when the rectal pressure isn't insane. I have just noticed that both can become crazy at the same time. I am also having hip pain (both sides) and tenderness/burning in the upper part of my leg (hip area I guess). I have problems in my upper back to. My doctor does not want to MRI it cause he's saying it's muscular, though the pain is directly in my spinal bone. He's just silly. I am not sure what to think. It's just a very uncomfortable problem and I don't think my gyn will want to do a thing over this, if she does, I will be very surprised, I guess that is why I've delayed calling for an appt.

Re: Low back pain, rectal pressure

Sounds like time to get a spine specialist to order an MRI & find out what is going on. If your GP or OB/GYN won't order the MRI, I think I would go to a specialist, either an orthopedist who specializes in spine or neuro who also is a spine specialist.
