Passing out during bowel movements

This only happens about every three months or so.  When having a bowel movement I will have a very sharp pain, that make me double over.  Then I get very warm.  I them pass out.  When I awake it can be 10 to 30 minutes later I am on the floor, confused, dazed, and have a numb feeling through my body.   Everytime it happens I usually have bitten my lip.  For about an two hours after the episode I am usually very weak and just want to sleep.  

I am really scared cause I don't know if I am having a seizure or what.  I have passed out in public places and most of the time it is at home.  Can you give me some answers to this problem.

Thanks

You need to see a doctor. It does sound like a seizure, but its strange that it only happens when you are going to the bathroom.

Maybe someone else has had this experience and will offer their opinion.

Hope you feel better.
