Does anyone else get bowel cramp? It feels like someone has stuck a hot poker up your bottom then the pain goes up into your tummy. I mostly get it in the middle of the night if I have had a day with lots of bowel movements. It's so painful it wakes me up. My colorectal surgeon told me its cramp and to take pain killers and walk around until it goes away. I have been diagnosed with slow transit constipation and had 1/3 of my large bowel removed last year due to constant bowel obstruction. I have had the cramp for 4 years now and would like to know how any of you deal with it.
