Belly Pain And Spasms AFTER Bowel Movement!

Belly Pain And Spasms AFTER Bowel Movement!

This is going to sound really strange!!. I know that most people get painful bloating and spasms before a BM and then feel some relief afterward. Does anyone ever get painful spasms or pain right after a BM that could last for a couple of hours? This has been happening to me for a long time. I don't know why I never mentioned this to a doctor. (I guess I'm at a point where I've lost all trust in most of them).
I suffer from IBS-C. I take ClearLax (Miralax) to help. I… read more

Headaches

Headaches

Hi I just wondered if anyone else gets bad headaches with IBS especially before your period (if you are a women!) I went to the doctor about it as it is more regular now & she felt it was to do with stress although I don't feel stressed! I used to take paracetamol but she advised me to take ibroprofen so have done that & it is better taking that. When I get a bad headache I feel like I can't concentrate on anything & sometimes just want to sleep as I also get really tired too.
