feel weak after going to the bathroom

After I go to the bathroom (#2), I feel weak and drained of energy. I feel that way like a minute later and it goes away eventually, especially if I eat something. It happens pretty much every time, even if I'd eaten recently before. What is this?

It sould like low blood. However, it most lilely is not unless you are losing it somewhere else. How lond does it last? If it is a brother, i'd see a gp doc soon.

Re: feel weak after going to the bathroom

Low blood? As in low blood sugar? I think I do have that because if I don't eat for a while, I feel kind of bad and tired. It only lasts a little while, like a few minutes. I usually have a snack and feel better. It's just odd and I was wondering what it means. Thanks for your help.

Re: feel weak after going to the bathroom

Just wondering if you're doing a lot of straining while having a bowel movement. That could possibly tire a person out.

No, that's not it. Thank you though.

Re: feel weak after going to the bathroom

Straining to pass bowel movements may cause a drop in blood pressure which might leave you feeling weak and dizzy for a few minutes (there is a name for it, but for the life of me I can't remember it)

If concerned, you can see your Dr, but you could try increasing your fluid intake and taking some fiber suppliments in the meantime to see if that makes any difference.
