Why do I get the chills after a bowel movement?

Equilibration: Believe it or not, passing a bowel movement is an intricate, coordinated event that requires a specific sequence of nerves & muscles firing. One phase is the sympathetic phase, and the other is the parasympathetic phase. Brief (lasts < 5 seconds) chills immediately after a bm is part of the re-equilibration. Pain, or anything that lasts longer needs to be checked out by your doctor. ...Read more

Blood pressure low: If this only happened once, don't worry about it too much. If it happens every time, it sounds like your vagus nerve is overactive and it is causing all of these things. Make sure that you don't get constipated and have to strain to get it out or have a lot of pain. If it keeps happening, you need to see a clinic and particularly to get your blood pressure checked. And always get UP SLOWLY. ...Read more

Always feel faint during and after having a bowel movement. It doesn't get better until I lie down or sometime not at all. What causes it? B/P Normal.

Valsalva maneuver: Straining at defecation causes an abrupt drop in bp. Although you note that your BP is "normal", it's the fall in BP that causes dizziness and it's likely that yours falls with valsalva (straining) as does everyone's. Your lactose intolerance and IBS may have caused some volume contraction - you can counteract this by pushing fluids and liberalizing your salt intake. Good luck! ...Read more

While running, I get 3 miles in and have to have a bowel movement. I have tried going before but doesn't help. What can I do? I have been running about a year and this has been a problem since adding more distance. I have tried going before I run but often

This: This is a common complaint of distance runners. The mechanism is not entirely clear but I have suggested to my patients to use Imodium (loperamide) or another antidiarrheal in a prophylactic manner. I have had great success with this. It usually only takes one or two 15-30 minutes before a run and you will be much more comfortable. I would also suggest staying away from sugar or high electrolyte drinks prior to the run as they can also stimulate bowel movements. ...Read more

Hi, last week I only had 1 bowel movement and it's been like that since after New Years. Sometimes I get 2 bowels. Could there be something wrong?

This certainly can: Be normal at your age. If it's a change, it may be from a dietary change. If you are not uncomfortable/in pain/no blood in stool, you can just observe. You can try increasing your fluid and fiber intake to see if that helps you have more bowel movements. If that doesn't help or you are having pain or bleeding, you should contact your doctor to be examined. ...Read more
