Knot in back muscle, constipation

Pretty big muscle knot at mid-back, bottom of ribs, near left kidney...coincidental to onset of moderate constipation. Muscle knot bulges horizontally from spine and feels like it goes deeper toward left kidney. Also coincidental to heavy lifting. No pain whatsoever upon palpating muscle, which appears to be one of lowest muscles of mid back on charts. But....discomfort to interior of muscle toward kidney is noticed hours before bowel movement. My concern is the constipation and muscle bulge-knot happening at the same time. Constipation partially relieved with herbal laxative; muscle knot partially reduced in size with anti-inflammatories. But knot and muscle knot-discomfort continuing after one week. Ideas?
