Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Pain in lower back while passing stool can be due to constipation, wrong posture while sitting or due to fissure and piles. Diverticulitis of colon or some mass in rectum can cause this too.

If you also get lower back pain on prolonged sitting or after some work, then maybe there are arthritic changes in lower spine causing nerve compression.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance. You are likely to need some tests to reach a diagnosis. Meanwhile you can watch your diet, avoid constipation, increase water and roughage in your diet and watch your posture on toilet seat. You can also opt for physiotherapy of lower back.

This reply to your query is just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit and treatment by a doctor who can examine you. Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
