hows come everytime I have a bowel movement my back hurts and my stomach hurt?

It is my whole back. I do have trouble going to the bathroom, but when I do go it isn't hard or nothing it is just like I have a hardtime trying to get myself to go. I go to the doctor on the 3rd for it. I have been like this ever since I had my youngest DD 2.5 years ago. I did have problems with the epidural though I had to get 2 blood patches. I get lower back pain, neck pain headaches ever since she was born. But they found out it has something to do with my verdabraies and my nerve in my neck. I also sometimes go numb from waist down when I do go or sometimes my legs tingle. What can be the cause? Like I said I do go to the doctor the 3rd, but figure to ask what you guys think it could be?

  • Those 2 things might be related,but not from the same source. the stomach pain could be from the straining. The back pain could be from sitting on the toilet its pressing on a nerve in your back.
