Whenever I eat, I get a strong urge to have a bowel movement but sometimes I do not pass stool. This started up a few months ago and I cannot think of any reason why this should have started up. The only information I could find was about diarrhea after eating but I do not have diarrhea or loose stool.
I just get a very strong urge and that is all. If I can withstand the urge then after about 30 minutes or so, it goes away. If I do sit on the toilet then I may pass stool but if I emptied my bowels before that then nothing happens. I don’t have any other problems with my health but I started anxiety medication a few months ago after being a victim of crime. Could this be post traumatic stress syndrome?
