I am the same way. I have 3-4 BM's 1st am and I am usually ok until later afternoon. Does anyone experience tenderness and hear there stomach rumbling and gargling hours after making a BM?
That is me. And it usually is smaller amounts. Yes, I have tenderness, of course, if I'd quit pressing around on myself all the time in my abdominal area I might not be and also, I feel a constant tightness in my upper gut area all the time, only if I get around to doing something that occupies my time do I not think about
it and it goes away. And of course, I hear gurgling and feel the gas 3/4 of the day. Worse at night and early morning. Of course, when these things occur my stress levels rise very sharply. And tonight I have heartburn. I think I am having some problems with the taking of the Asacol maybe, I read all the side effects of them and a good deal of it sounds like what I'm experiencing. I took it one time before with no problem, but a person's system can change with age I am sure as to tolerating medicines. I've noticed more also when using the bathroom that it seems like I can feel it moving down from my upper part of my intestine, never noticed that before now. No diarrhea or bleeding for me though. Weird.
