Do you ever get this symptom with Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

I get weak, and sometimes feel light headed when I actually go. Nothing online really mentions this.

  • Try drinking a lot of water. Could be a condition associated with IBS called Vaso Vagal syncope. It happened to me. I have IBS. I was diagnosed with vaso vagal syncope when I began having feelings of fainting either before or after a bowel movement. Not much you can do about it. Just rest when you feel that way and it passes.

  • Are you straining too much? I know that's kind of personal but that's all I can think of since you said you feel light headed when you go..
