Nice to see you. Vasovagal syncope. Some people get dizzy when they strain to cough, pee, or have a bowel movement. These actions can sometimes prompt a "vasovagal" response (this is the effect of your vagus nerve on your circulatory system): a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, leading to dizziness. Remember I am not your physician but if you are concerned about this problem just do not bare down when your having a BM. If that does not work, see you Pysician.
