Can you pass out while trying to poop, if you're constipated?

In brief: Vasovagal

If you are bearing down real hard, you can get something called "vasovagal" syncope.
Its nothing serious, but certainly can be quite scary. Although in a bathroom, passing out can lead to serious injury. Be careful! try and relax. Good luck!
