Brief Answer:
Gallstones can be the reason.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Stomach pain and back pain are quite characteristic symptoms of gallstones. Especially if the pain is in the upper middle or right abdomen, appears after fatty foods and causes some nausea. Gallstones usually do not give any blood work changes (if there is no inflammation).
Abdominal ultrasound is the next step at your case for sure. Urine should be checked as well as an infection can act like that.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

For better view of this organs ultrasound (liver) and CT (pancreas) can be done. With this tests negative you can say that this organs are completely healthy.

Hi! I went to the Urgent Care yesterday because I was having some stomach cramps, back aches and spotting and I am currently in between periods. After taking a urine sample, doing blood work, and getting an x-ray of me the doctor there determined that I had severe constipation. The treatment was to drink 32oz of Gatorade mixed with 238g of Miralax and take two Dulcolax pills within an hour of drinking the mixture. He told me to do this for two days, however now i am not pooping out anything but liquid. It feels like I m peeing instead of pooping. Should I stop taking the laxatives?
