Maybe not all are related,

Started last month with low back pain/pressure, felt like constipation so I self treated for that with stoll softeners. BM's improved but pain did not.

Went to DR. says I have UTI, treated with antibiotics, UTI cleared up but still have back pain, now also hyper sensetive sense of taste, salt is REALLY salt, spicey is REALLY spicey. BMs now are very small and infrequent. I of course tell Dr. all of this.

Went to chiro, (maybe back pain is just back pain,) no change.

Last week did a catscan found am extreamly constipated :o and am back to square one, laxitives and stool softeners.

With out medication the pain is dibilitating, I use ibuprophine and tylenol during the day, vicodine at night.

I am so sick of this, on the one hand I am pretty sure it is not life threatening, on the other it is life altering. Am still able to work but all else is slipping away.

Any ideas?
