I have IBS and recently have started feeling nauseous when I need a bowel movement. When I have a BM the nausea subsides. This is a new symptom.

Nausea: This reflexive reaction to the urge to have a bm isn't too unusual when the bm is somewhat urgent as often happens in IBS syndrome which actually can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract to some degree.

Intestine (Definition)

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).

I always get a nauseous feeling before and during bowel movements. This causes me to also have a racing heart and dizziness.

Get a checkup: Off the top of my head I would say that when you strain during a bowel movement, this may cause a vasalva which is physiogical response and causes your heart rate to drop and blood pressure will drop. Nausea accompanies sudden drops in blood pressure. Then your heart rate may return to normal or go faster. This does not explain the symptom of nausea prior to bowel moment you're straining.

Lots of stomach bugs: But your symptoms can be caused by lots of things & may indeed originate outside the GI tract. If persistent, further evaluation in order. Consider recent ingestants, medications, contacts, risks when determining cause & cure.

I have had pain in my right side for about 3 months now, and cannot get any answers. It gets worse trying to have a bowel movement. Also nausea.?

3 months: After having right sided abdominal discomfort for three months, you should be examined by your physician. If there are associated bowel symptoms, inflammatory conditions like Crohn's disease must be considered. Gall bladder disorders usually cause right upper abdominal discomfort without bowel symptoms. If you had prior abdominal surgery, adhesions may be a cause. Chronic appendicitis unlikely.

Hard to say: Those symptoms deserve some type of work up. See a doctor for complete history and exam to start. You may then undergo tests with contrast material like upper GI series with small bowel follow through, barium enema, oe abdominal ct scan. Colonoscopy and / or upper endoscopy may be indicated. Blood tests probably in order too. Your doctor can decide.
