In brief: Feels food in guts
You are probably describing visceral hyperalgesia--the heightened sense of gut distension & motility that many patients with irritable bowel syndrome experience, particularly at times of "mass movement.
" however, the same feeling may occur in response to partial obstruction (whether mechanical or functional). An abdominal obstruction series may reassure you, or may lead to additional studies.
