I'm having some trouble with bowel movements and can't seem to find anything here that matches up with my problems. I thought it could be IBS but the symptoms just don't match. I'm hoping someone here may know! If I can at least be pointed in the right direction it would be a big help!
My problems are that I'm actually "normal" most of the time, but there are days (maybe 5 or 6 days a month) that I have terrible and very frequent bowel movements. They are not constipation or diarrhea, they look like normal bowel movements, but I am going 5-9 times in a day!

The symptoms are: (all of these symptoms happen at the same time with each bowel movement!)
Abdominal pain
Lower back pain
Dizziness
Hot flashes
Sweating
Contractions in my stomach muscles (I'm female, but not pregnant)
Fuzzy vision around the edges
Feeling like I need to throw up

It is very strange and painful, and it is driving me crazy! I feel like my body is evacuating everything in my system... Like if I don't go to the bathroom I will instead vomit. (One way or another it's coming out!) Also, when I "think" I'm done I still have to sit there and wait, because it will reoccur in about 4-5 minutes. I honestly feel completely empty, but it starts all over again! Then I am ok for a few hours until another painful bowl movement. Does anyone know what this is?? I have looked all over, and can't find anything like this. This is really disruptive to my life; I never know when this will hit me. I'm very young, only 24. I would really appreciate any and all input!
~Thank you~

  • I was looking and trying to find the answer to my problem. I have read your posting and been having the same problem. The feeling of throwing up and even the pain when having a bowel movement. Plus I am not having a baby! There have been days and weeks that I can go without a bowel movement. Once I go to the bathroom I am having the pain and even sweat.Sooooooo.........I would like to know what is going on with me. Thanks!
