This may be a really silly coincidence, but I seem to always get 'worse' joint pain after having a bm.

I say worse I just mean its intensity picks up to the same level as when I consider it actually there and not just a constant dull ache.

My stomach after has a dull ache afterward too.

Silly coincidence?

No, it's not a silly coincidence. I do have this, too. This happens to me esp. when my proctitis is flaring up and there is narrowing. In these days, I have d but can't have an easy bm which necessitates straining. When I get out of the bathroom, my two knees hurt me severely, they don't hold me and I'm about to fall down. I don't know what's the reason. My GI refuses this and told me that I can faint after vomiting but a bm this is not possible. I have suffered from this for years w/o an explanation. I once read that sometimes because of sitting for a long time the blood goes all down to the legs and that's why the brain does not have enough oxygen and one faints but I'm not quite sure whether this is right or not.

That's crazy! It does make sense sitting down too long, if we can faint just from standing up too quick, surely straining all that time if even more stress.
I hate it when doctors dismiss you like that. I have so many silly little things I wana tell my doctor but I'm too scared of being dismissed as a hypochondriac because really everything's coming back 'fine' if that makes sense!

Thanks for your reply its always a comfort knowing that I'm slightly normal ;) lol
