Does anyone else experience lower back pain?

Just recently I have started to get horrible lower back pain. My question is , does anyone get this with flares .. before they weren't as bad. Seems now I feel like I'm stooped over from pain. doc says no way but I'm really thinking it is.

    1. hello cindyj,
      this is one the ibs symptoms, you're right, its just horrible to feel, i got the sames lower back pain a few weeks ago, and i walked one hour every day during one week, to help my bowel transit, then my pains lessened, it's more brearable.

      i hope it's gonna be helpful.

      best healing wishes.
