I have it during flaring or if I do have gas in my colon before inserting the enema.....it's normal to have feeling. Consider that the response to go is when there's something in the sigmoid on its way to the rectum...only it's going the other way..up from the rectum to the sigmoid....still will trigger the sensation to go.
White-knuckle through it.....
Sometimes, I'll get a wave of some nausea and a slight urge about
an hour after inserting it...no, I rarely fall asleep after using the enemas.
