Stomach Pain And Back Pain: How These Pains Are Connected

by Kalidasa on August 23, 2010

If you confounded by stomach pain and back pain, then your pain and confusion are both about to be cleared up. There are reasons that these two areas can be in pain either at the same time or at alternating times. Let’s look at the most common reason and what you can do to resolve the issue.

The underlying cause of certain areas of back pain can also cause other issues in the body. In other words, what causes lower back pain can also cause pain in the gut. The specific area can change or remain the same. Often only one area will hurt at a time with one or the other causing more and longer term pain. This is true in most cases, but of course there can be a lot of variation. There is an issue that can cause both problems, and it is becoming more common all the time.

The good news is that a remedy with a very high success rate is easily available. The bad news is that it takes a long time for the system to break down to this point. The condition may start out as a little back pain, or some cramping in the gut that clears up after a relatively short time, but without clearing up for good. Things can get worse and worse until the person is completely debilitated.

But, what could cause both pain in the stomach pain and back pain? These are completely unrelated areas other than one being in front and one on the other side. And, the pain is completely different too.

The underlying issue is adrenal fatigue. The adrenal glands provide the base line energy for the body, and they help us deal with stress. Most people are under a lot of stress these days, and adrenal fatigue is becoming all the more common.

First, the adrenal glands, since they are more important, will use up many of the same nutrients that the ligaments and tendons need to stay strong. The ligament strength in the lower back tends to give out first because it holds the entire weight of the upper body. Which leave you with lower back pain. This can be good in a way as your stress levels usually reduce if you’re not as active.

The gut gets strength from the adrenal glands too. Acupuncturists know this well, they explain that the gut needs energy to “cook” the food that is put into it, and that the needed “heat” is generated from the adrenal glands or “kidney yang.”

Therefore, you end up with gut pain and back pain, both from adrenal fatigue. You may need more treatment for either area depending on how much damage may have been caused. Of course, the place to start is the adrenal glands. Back pain may need more help, but the gut issues heal in all but the most extreme case.
