Hi! I am new here and found this forum while googling on this issue.
Yesterday, I had a very novel experience.
I went to the bathroom as usual. I have been feeling fine, no symptoms at all.
Then, I suddenly felt an intense urge to have a bowel movement, but no results. You know the sensation of having diarrhea with that intense feeling of needing to "go now!"? I experienced that for several hours and repeatedly went to try - with no results. I also felt the "burning" of a uriniary tract infection (also all of a sudden). Lots of pressure, no urine, no bowel movement. Finally, I managed to pass a very little gas and the sensations receded. Not absent, just not too strong.
Today, I had a bowel movement that was: first part normal (brown, firm but not hard) and a sludge of dark green. I continue to feel slight pressure to go, but not painful as it was last night.
No fever, although I was sweating with the pain last night. I experienced a brief spasm of nausea without vomiting (almost, but did not). Today I just feel puny.
Could this be some type of food poisoning? My husband ate the same spaghetti dinner I did the night before, but he has not the same symptoms. Perhaps, some sort of bacteria? I am taking peppermint gels today just in case. I am also making some vegetable soup (no meat, just veggies with some barley) in hopes the fiber and the water will help pass whatever is going on in my gut.
