Back in February I was treated for a gastrointestinal parasite with Flagyl. It left me with IBS and lactose intolerance. My question concerns my latest symptom. I have intermittent lower back pain that centers over each hip. I did have a bout of UTI but it was successfully treated. This is definitely gas related because when I burp the pain goes away. Is it normal to have gas in the lower back waist area with IBS??? Any suggestions or information greatly appreciated. Thank you.

you can have referred pain in your back while you have cramps. You can also have gas anywhere in your body. (i've had it in my chest!) Try a heating pad on your back to help relax some of the muscles back there.

Thank you so much Blondie. It helps to hear this from another person. It's weird how it pops in and out. First one side than another. I'll try your suggestion. Thanks again!

Hi flourgirl,
Welcome to Healing Well :)
Its funny what are bodies do to us somehow isn't it? While anything is possible with IBS as blondie says, I would definitely mention it to your doc if you haven't done so. So often we dismiss aches and pains but if it becomes consistent (especially in one area) we should let our docs know. Let us know if you get any relief.
Take Care
