17 year old suffering from severe constipation, stomach and back pain. What is the treatment?

Hi my name is Jackie I am 17 years old. So here s my issue... I had a bowel movement on Friday of last week and went five days with nothing but gas that didn t seem to want to come out. Throughout those five days my stomach and lower back had begun to hurt quite bad. Yesterday was Wednesday and I the pain was so bad I had to do something. I took laxatives and an enema and pooped a little but the pain didn t go away in fact it feels as though it may have gotten worse. I m in a lot if pain and I ve noticed that I get goose bumps when the pain is at it s worst. I don t know what else to do. Please help.

You should take plenty of liquids,high fiber diet,green leafy vegetables.
The stools will be soft and constipation gets cured.
Even after above measures ,if it does not come down,you should consult a Gastroenterologist.
Till then please take Muscle relaxant.
