Nichole asks:

I am constantly having dull pains (bloated, pressure) on my stomach. I also poop on average about four times a day. It seems like literally every time after I eat, I poop. Even half an apple, anything!! I have very little stress in my life. What could be the cause of this?? Please help!! Thanks!!


Thanks for the question.

First of all, you know I'm going to tell you to see your doctor first, right?

He/she will perform all sorts of horrifying and expensive tests. If nothing deadly is found, you will probably be told you have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

Poke around Ask Poonurse til you find the article on IBS that I spent the better part of fifteen minutes researching and writing.

Hope this helps explain things, and I hope there is nothing terribly wrong!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question

My 5 year old son has been (off and onhis whole short life) had terrible pain just before and during potty/pooping. I have always thought it was just gas pains, but lately there have been times when I think it is getting worse and that there is perhaps a real medical problem. I know... see a doctor and ok, but for now in the real world I would like some input because lets face it, until I pester him for the next 6 months he will pat me on the head and send me away.... then the tests, etc. So, please let me know if there is a chronic gas prior to pooping syndrome that can be researched. So far Chrone's is the only thing that pops up...

I have irritation in my stomach...and I have a total lose of appetite as well as unsolidified poop...and when I do poop it's small and never a long steady movement..It feels like my stomach is in the back of my throat..and it slightly burns...I'm also experiencing fatigue and generally warn down. and on top of all these problems when I vomit it brown and seriously smells like poop...the only thing I can think of is that my previously girlfriend was unclean and she was sleeping around and having unprotected sex with a bisexual man. I feel acid burning all through my stomach..and my waste Oder is getting worse and it's very repulsive. please help me, I'm only 20 and I don't know what to do about how I feel or why I feel this way when I have only been with one person and have a cleanly O.C.D.. thank you

I have pain on the right side of my abdomen when pooping that lasts for hours or days after large stools. Should I be worried?

Spicy food mixed with a steady dosage of Motrin, not a good idea! My lower abdomen feels like its going to burst. Gotta go! Try dring water while on the pot, works for my wife.

Eat a pound of bing cherries in one sitting and see if that will result in a quicker exodus.

There is a possibility you could just have a disfunctional bowel. Some people these days rely on laxatives or stool softeners to go to the toilet. And I've heard that it can happen at any age! Scary huhh??? Try coloxyl and senna to maybe help soften the stool if you can't poop or a laxative otr even more naturally???? A fibre supplement like metamucil! Fibre is the key too solving chunky hard poops!!!

My daughter just turned 1 years old and since she's been pooping bigger than usual that it hurts her to push and it also makes her bleed. Can you please tell me what could possibly be the cause of this?

sinlove1127, The health of a precious one year old should rely on the opinion of a medical doctor rather than that of a poop humor site. Get that child to a doctor, yesterday!

Dirty old men need love too!!

If I had two faces do you think I'd be wearing this one?

When I was 5 I weighed 25 lbs due to being told I was diagnosed with cronz disease, I'm now 17 and just facing with i.b.s, it is a constant battle with food every day, I can't eat breakfast because it tears me up like my stomach just isn't awake yet, alongside with I.b.s come with lactose n tolerent. Whenever you poop and you feel worn out its because you have pooped put all the things your body needs to make you feel good, this is a result in you stomach working so fast and the body can't absorbe the goods
