Question Curious symptoms...

I am 17 and have pretty normal bowel movements. The only thing is it feels like I don't completely evacuate myself. I have no pain, blood, or narrowing of my stools. Occasionally i have some discomfort almost like a feeling that I need to have a BM when I don't. What could cause this??//

When do you get this feeling? After a movement or just anytime? It could be a bowel spasm some people get these and dont have to have a movement. Or gas it does cause this as well.

It seems to happen mostly after I have a bowel movement, but it does happen some other times. It feels like my body is trying to push something out when nothing is there. I was thinking that I might have a hemmorhoid in the rectum that makes it react like it needs to evacuate some stool, but I really don't have any symptoms of hemmorhoids unless this is actually a symptom

I agree with autumn! I have heard that bowel spasms are a lot like bladder spasms. I had bladder spasms for a while then my doctor told me to try really hard to ignore them. I know it's hard too but it worked for me.
take care
