Can Gas Cause Lower Back Pain

I have been experiencing lower back pain that started a few days ago. It has now moved to the front and hurts when I breathe. I can't seem to comfortable whether sitting, standing or lying down. It also hurts if I sneeze. Could this be severe gas?

Answer

Many nerves occur in the lower back area and lower back pain can be caused by quite a few conditions. Most cases of lower back pain are caused by some sort of injury to that area but problems in the gastrointestinal system can cause pain in that area as well. Any problem that causes a large amount of unexplained pain - such as you're experiencing - that is not going away, really calls for a trip to the doctor. Good luck!
