54 yr old female.
Beginning this past April I began having constipation.
Pain in back seemed like uti.
Visited doc. for uti prescribed antibiotics for 1 week.
Soon after, developed swollen (not painful) muscle (?) on left lower back next to spine.
Experiencing unusual amount (for me) of flatulence and burping.
Skin over lower back and over top of hips feels very sensitive but no rash, redness, bruises
or bumps, does not hurt to touch.
Skin sensitivities come and go.
Began taking otc laxative.
Pain in lower back relieved with bowel movements and sometimes stretching and getting a "pop" from my spine.
Increased fiber, stopped laxatives.
Took a lot of probiotics.
Burping greatly decreased, flatulence comes and goes.
Stool is mostly small and skinny but sometimes close to normal.
