Brief Answer:
Can be due to various causes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Common causes of low back pain are-

Poor postural habits
Muscular strain
Ligaments sprain
Herniated disc
Spinal stenosis
Osteoporosis
Fibromyalgia

Pain in the foot can be related to the back pain or can be due to arthritis or plantar fasciitis. The constipation can be due to decreased fiber or fluid intake, sedentary lifestyle or gut disturbances.
Proper diagnosis involves investigations like ultrasound of the abdomen, X-ray and MRI of the spine after an examination by your primary physician.
The treatment will then depend on the cause.
Hot fomentation and oral muscle relaxants can provide a temporary relief till then.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
