There are a few ways of increasing bowel movements.
Adding fibre to bulk up stools, drawing water into the bowel, and increasing peristalsis with stimulant medications.
In your case, adding water to the bowel seems the most appropriate, since you have cramping!
You can drink a lot, or use a stool softener (which draws water into the bowel) but be careful not to get one that also has a bowel stimulant.
It's a very frustrating illness. We do one thing and it upsets another.
