Pain in lower back tightness - food related?
I'm new here so I hope you don't mind me going on about my problems?
During the past couple of years occasionally (2-3 times per week at least) I wake up with a chronic pain and tightness in my back when its really bad it can also be felt in my lower left side abdominal. It feels as if something is blocked up, swollen inside etc... This can be relieved instantly by going to the toilet (if I need to go) otherwise the pain could last a constant 2 days without being able to twist move around without being in extrema pain.. Sleeping is impossible! This is how I'm feeling now by the way. I find this so hard to explain (I guess thats why I have no luck with the doctors) I have had all the blood tests been told It could be IBS (I can definitely relate to the symptoms) I do eat a very health diet try to stay fit at the gym, sport I'm not overweight etc.. Obviously this causes all sorts of problems in my life - I have try-ed laying off certain foods the usual culprits bread, dairy products and all sorts of other things. The only thing I can guarantee to work is to not eat at-all! Obviously this isn't an option as I love food to much - I'm very frustrated right now and could really do with some good advice any replies will be greatly appreciated
