I've recently been diagnosed IBS-C after many months of pain and constipation and I was just wondering if anybody else experiences abdominal pain/spasms AFTER a bowel movement? I can go, and then experience what can only be described as a feeling of soreness throughout my gut that can last anything from a few hours to two days.
I know the usual thing you read about IBS is that BMs often relieve the pain in many cases but I wondered if anybody else was like me and finds that it's the other way round. If so, have you found anything that helps?
My theory is that it's the peristalsis continuing even when there's no longer something there to expel but I don't know.
Thanks all! Em
