I have this happen from time to time as well. I'll actually have days where I hardly ever go to the bathroom which is great, but then I feel REALLY ill, shakey, chills, sweating, nausea, cramps, etc... And I'll sit in the bathroom forever feeling like I'm having a baby, and when I finally pass some it's a bit of solid and then there's the biggest amount of D ever and it's like it was all just holding out waiting and I feel like I lost 5 pounds after.
I've never heard the term lead pipe syndrome before but yeah, it's definitely not a fun experience!!
