I already used miralax (polyethylene glycol) and had a bm but also severe stomach pain. Is that normal with use?

In brief: Perhaps

Sometimes when you're constipated, you can get a little abdominal pain after the bm. In addition, if taking more than one laxative and/or stool softener and/or pro-motility agent, you can develop some crampy abdominal pain.
If this continues or it is severe or there is bleeding, see your doctor.
