What causes low backache, blood in stool and anemia?

default
Posted on Thu, 28 May 2015
Question: I am still trying to figure out what could be causing my back pain. The colonoscopy came back fine. My gastroenterologist said to see him again in 3 years. Still no explanation for the blood in stool and anemia. I suppose he assumes the blood in stool is from constipation, which I do suffer from because of the pain meds. I also have frequent spotting when I wipe after urinating which could have multiple causes. Is there anything that could explain the low back pain? Maybe something to do with the kidneys? So far, all tests have ruled out any spinal problems.

Brief Answer:
Back pain can be related to kidney disease and UTI or PID

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I share your concern
Low backache can be related to kidney disease and UTI or PID which is again supported by occasional spotting

so I would advise you to ask your doctor to rule out this possibility by urine culture
You may require a course of antibiotics under supervision of your doctor
Have lots of fluids to flush off urogenital tract.

Blood in stool is a matter of concern it can be caused by number of reasons, since your colonoscopy report is normal than this could be caused by ruptured mucosa due to hard stool (constipation)
I would like to know whether you are having hemorrhoids or fissures in anus?

I would advise you for a holistic approach to address your health problem like dietary and life style modifications

Have lots of fruits and vegetables, plenty of dietary fibres
Yoga and meditation
stretching exercises
Multivitamin and calcium supplements
Avoid fried fatty and spicy food
you can take laxative or stool softening agents like liquid paraffin to avoid constipation

Hope this helps you
Let me know if anything not clear?
Best wishes
