This has never happened before, but starting this week, everytime I go poo I get intense pain in my stomach till it's all gone. First time it was very short yet still painful so I thought nothing of it. The second time I got woken up because it hurt so bad. I went to the bathroom and went a little then came back out. The pain went away for 5 mins then came back and this kept happening till about 10am. I ended up taking some pepto bismol (though I usually never do) around 9am. But once my system was "flushed out" the pain went away and I felt completely fine for the rest of the day. But it happened again this morning though not as bad as the second time (but worse than the first time). I haven't really eaten anything out of ordinary, and seeing that this has happened three times in a row everytime I've had to go poo I don't think it's because of the food.
