Bowel MOvements and a nerve connection - strange I know

Hi folks - I'm new to HB.com & I'm glad there is a site like this. You may think I'm nuts though after reading this.

I have had irregular bowel movements for the past 10 years. I'm 58, male, 5' 11", 240 pounds ( yikes, I know.) I haven't had my first colonoscopy yet, but will within the next few weeks. I had a heart attack and quint BP 3 years ago.

I feel like hammered **** most of the time - although I'm youthful, vital and want a great life for myself. But, God I feel (and look) heavy.

I eat a fairly normal diet - too many carbs and butter and mayo and sugar, though. I don't drink more than 4 ounces of water a day and don't take any fiber supplements. After some bloodwork, My GP just told me I was on my way to becoming a full-blown diabetic, if I didn't loose weigh & change my diet. Aslo, almost without exception - even when eating what I believe to be a proper portion of food - I feel bloated and uncompfortable within an hour - and that feeling lasts from 5 to 7 hours or more. I can't sleep because of it = and often get up at 2 or 3 am and have small BM. THEN I can fall asleep.

I have 2 questions / commnets - wierd as one of them might seem: First - I was interested in a colon-cleaning ... not a [high] colonic - just a colon cleansing. I almost fell for the TV-sold "DUAL ACTION CLEANSE" .... but found a site that said it was a scam, and a lot of other bad things about this particular product. So, what are your feelings on colon cleansing?

And question #2; Frequently when I have a BOWEL MOVEMENT I don't feel as if it has all come out. It frustrates me and make me very uncomfortable. I am aware of my BM status 24/7, I can't help it. I CAN'T ENJOY ANYTHING UNLESS I'VE HAD A SATISFACTORY BM. HERE'S THE WEIRD PART - when I wipe myself I get an intense feeling in my ears. Yes, in my ears. It feels good - strange, really - but clearly related to wiping or touching my anus. Often it feels almost orgasmic. I have never heard of this and I am dead serious about it.

Please do not think illl of me - I really thought this might be the place to go for some answers. Can you help?

Sincerely,

lgc252
