Brief Answer: Crohns disease needs to be ruled out. Detailed Answer: Weight loss is a serious symptom. Considering your age and symptoms, Crohns disease should be ruled out at first. It is more possible if your abdomen gets bloated, you have occasionally gas and stool obstruction. Back pain can be a symptom of urinary tract infection which may associate the main disease due to dehydration. With UTI, frequent urinating and burning while urinating is also present. I suggest you to do not wait any longer. Please visit your doctor. Abdominal ultrasound, blood work, abdominal X-ray and urine analysis should be done at first. Stool tests and colonoscopy should be next. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
