After a bowl movement, I feel so ill, I get Brain fog, I

Customer Question

After a bowl movement, I feel so ill, I get Brain fog, I can't focus on things, very tired and weak, I could easily full asleep, no energy, muscles feel so tense and heavy, bloated, bad acid reflux, breathless, strange burning feeling in my body, with a warm feeling like something rushing thru my veins. It's like sand paper. Also pain in my whole back. If I drink any kind of water, I get the same sensation, and now when i eat in the morning, i know i'm over weight, but why would i get this feel after drinking water also. it's like that feeling you get when you feel you're sugar levels go low. i keep testing my levels, and there fine. if someone has dealt with someone who has had the same problem, please tell what i can do.
but please no guessing.
Thankyou.

do you have bad anxiety symptoms?

severe anxiety symptoms can cause very real symptoms in your body such as brain fog, fatigue, weakness, no energy, shortness of breath, chest pains

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
brain fog, fatigue, weakness, no energy, shortness of breath happens when i drink water, or after having bowl movement ?
i guess no one every heard of this ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

severe anxiety disorder can cause these symptoms.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
this isn't correct sorry. i'm no doctor, but i know how my body is. and anxiety disorder which i don't have, does not cause me to to have these problems only after i drink water or after a bowl movement, which i stated. again it's only after a bowl movement or when i drink water
so know one here knows really.
waste of money that was.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

how long have you been having these symptoms

your parasympathetic nervous system is activated when you eat or have a bowel movement

you could be having some autonomic nerve system dysfunction causing your symptoms when your parasympatic nervous system is working.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
few months
So what's the answer to get well please ?
Thanks.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

you need to see a neurology doctor

and get your nervous system evaluated.

you may need medications like neurontin or lyrica which can help treat abnormal nerve function.
