Stomach ache and back ache at night for over 12 months

Stomach ache and back ache at night for over 12 months.
I suffer from really bad stomach ache at night which wakes me up about 2 am and by 6 am I have to get up and sit up which eases it a little. I also get lower back pain with it. I get a dull ache during the day but it is only at night I am in agony. Have had colonoscopy, ultra sound scan and CT scan - nothing found! Has been going on for over 12 months. Eating doesn't seem to affect it and it has been at its worse when stress levels have been low. Menstrual cycle appears unrelated. I am 36.

Thanks for the replies.
Dr Lakhanpaul, I haven't specified the location of the pain as it is non-specific. It is lower abdoman (below naval) but hurts wherever I press and does not seem to be either right or left in origin. I have had IBS for 20 years and these symptoms are in addition to and completely different from my previous symptoms. My IBS is largely stress related and flares up when I am under stress. This current problem however stays more or less the same regardless of my stress levels.

Dear gayle
Thanks for reply. In addition to IBS for the moment you are also having chronic collitis this is what i believe from your reply. For its cure regularity of meals and proper freshly cooked meals non spicy and no fast food is a must for at least six month to restore the previous situation. Amongst herbal medicines i would recommend punarnava arisht viranga arisht 2 tsf tds with chitrak vati and lashun adi vati 1 tab. each tds.
also look if your water source is polluted . get it treated.
