Hello, I have been having stinging and cramping pains in abdominal. Also at times normal bowel movements then constipation. I also have had sharp pains in back and tailbone area. I have a colonoscopy scheduled in 4 days but today I am having stinging pains in tummy as well as pain between shoulder blades and middle part of back. I feel really grumpy and very tired?

possibly you have an irritable bowel syndrome. Colonoscopy should clear the picture. The other back pain you are describing is possibly due to spine problem or fibro myalgia.
Can try taking isapgula along with a probiotic to regularize your bowel movements.
Hope this answers your query,
Wish you a speedy recovery.
