    Cool Fatigue after bowel movement

    I've been fighting this for about 15 years. Eat breakfast, immediately poop, wave of fatigue washes over me. Then typically the same thing happens 1, 2, sometimes 3 more times over the next 2 hours, worse each time. Body ache goes along with it. Over a dozen doctors and no one can address the cause, only symptoms. Leaves me tired for the rest of the day. Looking for others with similar experiences, hopefully who have got some answers from knowledgeable doctors. Thinking it's related to my Crohn's Disease, but my GI docs have never agreed. Developed a generalized anxiety disorder after a Crohn's surgery and complications disaster about 14 years ago. Can't say it's not anxiety. Otherwise the anxiety is under control. Let's hear from others. Blessings!

    Hi rbutson,

    Perhaps your gut bacteria has become unhealthy. Have any of your doctors recommended a fecal transplant in an attempt to restore a healthy gut bacteria.

    Anxiety can leave you wiped out... have you tried antianxiety meds just to see if it makes a difference?
