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.
