Yes, being SEVERELY constipated can cause your back and ribs to hurt. It also depends on how long you have been constipated for. Being constipated can upset your whole system and make you feel terrible. In these circumstances it is best to resolve your constipation problem with a laxative or as the doctor recommends. Once the constipation is resolved then you can see whether the pain still persists.
