Feeling Of Having To Move Bowels

A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

Most times, after moving my bowels I have the constant feeling of still having to go. I do go a lot but it takes many bowel movements until the feeling goes away. It is miserable. I am happiest on days when I don’t go at all!
Can anyone else identify with this and is there anything that helps. Thanks.

A myIBSteam Member

Mine too. Constipation for almost 2 weeks, and then diarrhea for a week. I suffer from migraine as well. I am afraid I'm going to get fired. 😒

A myIBSteam Member

Hi, I Am So Fed Up Of Having To Rush To Toilet With Diarrhoea, & Not Always Getting There In Time.

A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been like this for many years but it’s getting much worse as I’ve got older, I’m now 68 yrs. & have had many accidents during this time. I’m at my wits end as this is controlling my life. I am otherwise fit & healthy
Doctor has prescribed suppositories which I use for every bowel movement, if I didn’t use these I would get all of the symptoms of wanting to go, but unable to go, until I had to rush to the toilet with chroni diarrhoea, & would be lucky if I made it in time. Don’t know what… read more
