I'm 24 years old male and about a year ago health problems started for me.


Let me describe my specific problem: I woke up with a back pain (middle left side/ribs area), I had no appetite and was nauseous, then I become constipated, but what makes my problem really different is if I am standing up i feel terrible pain in the back and i got chills like I have a fever, but if I lay down the pain in the back slowly goes away and I get bowel movement and also the chills goes away and i feel better (so I can always defecate only in the morning).


I can't stress enough how this problem is really frustrating and really hard to solve, let me explain why. I had my back x-ray, ultrasound, colonoscopy, blood tested and they found nothing, and my doctor tells me that those two problems (back and digestion) are not connected (for me it's a weird coincidence that both problems would happened at the same time) and it shall pass, that's probably my back muscles that hurts and it's ibs and i shouldn't worry about it. Which frustrates me because I can't just ignore the problem, because now after a year I also got tonsil stones, have frequent urination and my lymph nodes sometimes hurts. I tried a lot of things ate fibers and exercise, which I all did also before the problems started, but it's true that a month before problems started I was really nervous and sit really a lot because of exams.


Please if anyone has found a solution, knows what to do or have same symptoms so we can help each other, please let me know on this forum or on my email I would be so grateful.

What type of xrays did they do on your back? Did they look at your kidneys? Do an IV pylogram? The area of pain in your back sounds like where mine was when I had kidney stones. I also got very nauseated from the pain. Otherwise, I can't offer any other suggestions.

Hi Ides, I don't know how do they call it, but those xrays were for my spine, if there is any nerve damaged, about kidneys as far as I know they were checked with ultrasound, no IV pylogram was done.
