Thanks for writing in.
I would advise you to get a urine routine examination done to look for any evidence of a urinary tract infection
. Also get an abdominal ultrasound
to look for any evidence of stones/ calculi in the urinary tract. Another possiblity for the back pain
could be a loaded colon or gas trapped in the intestine.
To treat constipation
, it is not sufficient to just take a stool softener
and a laxative. It is very important that you have plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Have a fibre rich food which includes oats, bananas etc. Make sure you have plenty of water at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. Regular exercise 30-45 minutes a day 5 days a week is a must. Try to lose weight. Follow good eating habits. Eat healthy.
Hope this helps
