What causes back pain along with abdominal bloating and cramps?

Hi so I am having back pain, lots of gas, painful cramps, and my stomach bloats. All of these symptoms seem to come and go depending on the time of month. I also have fibroids that are painful and my urine seems to change in odor (strong to not at all) Are all the other symptoms because of fibroids or could they be something else.?

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern . As per your query you have back pain along with abdominal bloating and cramps . Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome , gas pains , gastroenteritis , giardiasis , constipation , lactose intolerance , ulcerative colitis or inflammatory bowel disease . Try to drink warm water several times a day . I would suggest you to consult gastroenterologist for proper examination. Doctor may order CT scan , ultrasound , stool test and endoscopy. Doctor may prescribe omeprazole , laxative , antibiotics like ornidazole and albendazole. Avoid intake of large meals at a time and take small and frequent meals. For now eat light , avoid non spicy and heavy food , drink plenty of water and eat fibrous diet . The symptoms can also occur due to UTI . Also ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
