Hello...just the board I've been looking for...as strange as that may be!! I am a 23 year old female who has had irregular bowel movements for as long as I can remember! I am concerned though. I have recently been having problems but can't figure out if they are bowel related. I have been having really bad stomach and lower back pains. I go to the bathroom about once ever 2-4 days(normal for me) Today, I went to the bathroom and "thought" I had a BM. It felt normal and everything, but I noticed that nothing really came out. This has happened a few times before...am I the only wierd person with disappearing Bowel Movements?! Any ideas?
Oh and also, I have been having really bad migranes for the past 6-7 months. My PCP recently put me on topomaxx(sp?) It was not helping so she upped the dose and it made me very sick...throwing up and nauseus all the time, so I recently stopped taking it on my own. Not sure if it was the best move, but it has helped until my newer problems arose about 2 weeks ago. Help...any and all suggestions or comments wanted!!
Could the BM have scooted round the S-bend quickly? Seriously tho, this is a lot of stuff to be happening all at once. Have you gone on the pill recently? Come off the pill?..with the migraines and all, there could be a hormone issue here. The pain may be gynae, not bowel. Have you had a gyn check lately. Log the pain occurence, see where it comes in your cycle.
