Good morning everyone & thanks to anyone who replies. I am usually over on the Fibro forum, but have a strange question for you guys today. Here goes. I have IBS & have had it for years. For the past 4 months, it has been under control for the first time in years (yay me!) except for one thing. Not often, but here & there, I will wake up during the night with medium strength stomach pains. It is not "flu like" tummy pains, but lower, then I feel my lower left part of my intestines and it is protruding out quite a lot and I can actually feel stool, that is what is sticking out! Sure enough, when this happened last night, I woke up this morning and within 10 min I was in having a larger than usual (firm, thank goodness!) bowel movement!
Do any of you ever get this "stool protrusion" right out of your lower bowel area? I am severely underweight, so not sure if I could gain some weight if this would stop happening. It also only happens at night. My bowels like to work the night shift I guess!
Thanks for any replies, and Happiest, Healthiest Holiday wishes to all!
