Causes for Lower Back Pain and Pain in Your Lower Stomach

Here’s What It Could Mean

If your stomach is churning or cramping and your lower back is aching, it's important to know that the causes for lower back and lower stomach pain can range widely. Depending on your pain level, you may benefit from ringing your doctor's office to figure out what's causing it and get relief.

Causes: Lower Back and Lower Stomach Pain

Many conditions can be behind lower back and lower stomach pain. In fact, it's possible for pain to stem from a problem within the reproductive, musculoskeletal, urinary or digestive system, according to the Mayo Clinic.

For instance, menstrual cramps are a common cause of abdominal pain as well as lower back pain, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

Endometriosis, a condition that occurs when uterine-like tissue grows in areas outside the uterus, is another condition that can cause stomach and back pain at the same time in women, according to the Office on Women's Health.

There are many known chronic overlapping pain conditions with endometriosis, notably abdominal pain and low back pain," 

Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a doctor of physical therapy at Femina Physical Therapy in Southern California, says.

Endometriosis is known for creating cyclic and noncyclic pain in the abdomen, low back and jaw."
