Back pain, increases after bowel movement, soft stools, subsides later. Solution?

I have severe back pain in the morning when I wake up. The back pain increases during and after a bowel movement . My stools are soft. The pain fades away after a few hours and it only re-occurs the next morning. The back pain is in the lower back making it difficult to stand or sit. It subsides a bit when lying down on my side.

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for the query. Back pain could be a referred pain from the bowel problem. As you said its related to your motion so first is to rule out any rectal, colon or anal problems which can give rise to back pain. Get examined by a general surgeon to rule out this problem. If that ruled out then we need to rule out spinal cause and in that case we need to spine x rays. Thanks.
