35 y.O.Healthy female with abdominal bloat, frequent foul gas and foul bowel movements. Most of the time stomach ache after eating also?
GI-flatukence: Bloating, belching, foul gas can be from multiple causes: bacterial infection, amebic infection, gallbladder disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other diseases of the GI tract.

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
Need more info: If the pain is in the area of the stomach and you were bearing down hard to move your bowels, then it could be that in the process of bearing down you increased the pressure in the belly enough to push stomach acid into the food tube or esophagus. This would then cause pain due to the nature of how you exerted yourself to defecate. Seems like a long time to have pain post movement. See your doc. ...Read more

The inflammation produced by the infecting organism (if this is due to infection) may produce residual inflammation causing the abdominal pain and nausea. ...Read more
Hemorrhoids likely.: This is likely due to hemorrhoids. The history strongly suggest it, since pain is after a bowel movement, and likely associated with straining. It could be anal fissure, or possibly another colon/anal issue. Depending on your age, and if this has been going on a while, you might want to see your doctor to get a rectal exam/testing to make sure it is not worse, like cancer, etc.. ...Read more

Having severe upper abdominal pain before having a bowel movement. Before today I haven't gone in a week. Is this something severe?
Need more info...: It is definitely not normal to have severe pain at any time. If it is related to a bowel movement, I would think about intestinal blockage.

Some people can go for several weeks without bowel movement, but pain is not normal. See your doctor for eval ASAP. ...Read more
