Brief Answer:
Urine analysis should be done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Lower back pain is not a part of IBS C disease. Back pain however can appear due to kidney infection which very often appears due to stool problems (both constipation and diarrhea). Spine is always possible reason of back pain.
If it is a very low back pain, rectum inflammation can be the reason as well. But this is rather rare symptom.

I suggest you to have urine analysis done at first.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
