Why does my lower back hurt when I pass stool?

I've had this for a couple months now. Usually in the morning when I guess there's a lot of stool present in the rectum and I go use the bathroom. I get mild sharp pains on my lower left back. And once I'm done passing the pain is pretty much gone. If I pass stool later on in the day I don't feel that pain. It seems like I feel it if there's a lot of build up. Is this normal?.. I'm only 19 yr old Male.
