It's definitely colon/rectal spasming from inflammation that's happening..after you eat, the sigmoid and rectum will be affected through peristalsis...kind of like "open the chute for dumping to make more room, I'm bringing in more stuff".
When you're having a bm....it's like the rectum can't hurry enough to get all the stuff out..kind of puking from the butt..lol! I call them white-knucklers...I usually do lots of whimpering during them and feel I could sleep the rest of the day afterward, I'm exhausted.
An antispasmodic should help....I use dicyclomine.
Are you using the Rowasa nightly for the past 6 weeks?
are you expecting your period soon?
Did you only have this once today or throughout the day?
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night

~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
