I haven't been formally diagnosed with a particular back issue as of yet, but my GP seems to think I may have a herniated disk. I am looking into seeing a specialist. I have pain in my left buttock, thigh and calf, with tingling in my foot.
One of the stranger symptoms I am having is increased pain when I have a full colon, am gassy or right before I have a bowel movement. Sometimes the pain seems to get better after I go or pass gas.
I've been taking a fair amount of Aleve (naproxen) recently and I believe it is causing me a bit of constipation also, which is making this worse.
Can anyone else here relate to this?
