Re: Bowel pain is severe, any ideas?

Is the pain around your navel or lower down? Is it like colon spasms? Does the pain stop once you have a BM? The feeling of almost passing out is probably a vagus nerve response to the pain. I understand the pain is severe when we pass out from it. I've done that for many years & it always scares me even tho I know what it is. I would see a gastroenterologist for a diagnosis. If it is IBS s/he can prescribe you something for pain.
