I am still having constipation because of weak bowel muscle result of three times masturbation for the past two weeks. How to recover bowel muscle?
Weak bowel muscle?: Masturbation of the penis alone does not usually affect bowel function, so you can rest easy about that.

If this possibility exists, please see your physician for an exam and any help which may be needed. ...Read more
Nearly fainted earlier after jumping out of bed and with major bowel movement. I'm trying to get up now, feel better but a little weak. Is this bad?
Not bad - be careful: You're "orthostatic" - that is, your BP drops when you fight gravity by rapidly assuming an upright position. This is always present to a small degree but becomes more pronounced after an illness, with dehydration, diarrhea, vomiting, excessive sweating, or prolonged rest. Just go slowly till you're (literally) "back on your feet" and you'll be ok. ...Read more

Not vagal: A vasovagal reaction would not cause this. There is some other cause. You need a careful look over. Is there something you eat, take, or do that is both constipating and making you tired?
