Back pain, constipation. No help with water, yoghurt, papaya. Suggestions?

While I feel pain in the lower middle area of my back (kidneys?), I ve drank lots of water and am urinating fine/clear. However, I have barely made a bowel movement (3 marble sized stool only) for 3 days now. For two nights now I have woken up with the back pain and sweats. Ate papaya and taken yogurt with active enzymes to hopefully have a normal bowel movement. Until then, ibruprophen has helped. Can my body be just reacting to the fact that I need to pass the bowel/toxins?

Hi Dear
Welcome to the board of Health Care magic,
Dear friend constipation is one of the very imp cause of back ache.
For the constipation consume lot of fruits and vegetables, plenty of water,
regular bowel habits means daily visiting toilet at fixed timings.
Regular use of isabgol husk with two glass of water in evening will help in recurrence of constipation.
For current agony of constipation you should take some laxative liquid or one tablet like cremalax. you will be relieved.
For backache simple one tab of painkiller will help you.
Hope your query is answered.
