Infection of a large in testine may be the reason for pain in your case as you are having green color stools. Amoebic colitis is a condition where large intestinal tract is inflamed. Most of the times prolapsed inter-vertebral disc in the lower spine, enlarged prostate, renal calculus also responsible for such pains.
