Why does my stomach hurt ONLY after a bowel movement?

I’ve had stomach bloating & cramping after every bowel movement for a few months now. I’ll be fine before and during but be miserable after. Pain varies from mild discomfort to severe cramping. It feels similar to menstrual cramps. I was treated a few months ago for constipation. High fibre & lots of water did the trick. But I’ve been having this issue ever since. Wondering what it could be.

Thanks in advance!

I am sorry to hear of this severe problem, and it certainly sounds like you need to see a specialist, preferably a gastroenterologist.

I think you might be having some degree of severe bowel spasm intermittently, this will definitely cause the cramping you are experiencing;  there are a couple of  natural remedies you can try, maybe they will help.

Take regular aloe vera to reduce bowel inflammation, and peppermint oil is a natural antispasmodic that is both safe and effective.

As I stated at the beginning, if this continues, then it is important that you see the specialist, it may be nothing serious, but it always to err on the side of safety.

I hope you feel better soon.
