Never Normal Bowel Movements

Never Normal Bowel Movements

I never and I mean never have a normal bm. About 3 times a week, I have what I call episodes. Episodes of pain, many bowel movements and tenesmus. I literally get rid of everything I've eaten in the past few days in an episode that last anywhere from 1 hour to 5. And always in the am. Is there anybody here that does this. My gastroenterologist is trying to help but so far nothing.

I’ve been taking dicyclomine, Bentyl, for many years and it helps. It still can make me tired and I get dry mouth but it’s worth it. I also use Imodium. I also take anti-anxiety meds to stay calm.
