See your doctor: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you.

Not enough data.: There is no common condition or diagnosis that is called "collapsed colon".
Meet with your doctor for a more complete explanation of the specific findings and their potential consequences.
