In brief: Hard stool?

The colon moves things along by squeezing.
If the stoolis hard or dry the colon has to squeeze pretty hard- and that can feel crampy. Make sure you are eating enough fiber, add a fiber supplement, and drink lots of water. If this doesn't resolve your symprtoms, see your doctor.
