Hi am just checking since I always tend to blame everything on my medical condition.  I am 4 years with a j-pouch but have had chronic pouchitis since the beginning.  I have been on maintenance cipro now for our years and it works wonders.  I have recently started having back pains and yesterday I had a shooting pain in my back just moving around (not lifting or anything) and now it is bothering so much I can barely stand.  If it doesn't stop I will go to doctor but I am just wondering if this could be tied to my use of cipro everyday.

I have severe lower back pain when I have pouchitus.  It only hurts when the pouchitus flares up.  When I use Canasa suppositories that treat the inflammation it makes the back pain better.  This is how i figured out the pain is coming from my pouch.

Holy! I could have written this same paragraph this week. I too have been on long term Cipro for chronic pouchitis which is controlling it beautifully, but now have lower back pain.  I am dying to know what ended up happening with you ( as I see it's a June 2018 post).  I Hope you got answers and are better. Still on Cipro? Thanks.
