Sometimes I get really, really weak must lay down. I then feel I need to have a bowel movement or vomit . Usually a bowel movement will help the weakness start to subside. My bowels moves regularly everyday.

Any significant past medical history (heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke)?

Hi, thank you for choosing Justanswer for your concern. I'm Dr Ted Manos M.D. and I can assist you shortly.
You are at an age where elimination of the waste of the GI tract is quite important. You said, "my bowels move regularly everyday". That is great to hear, but sooner or later there is an inconsistent pattern to bowel movements. You will feel weak and stressed when the regularity is lost and the waste is not being eliminated. It was no coincidence that your symptoms improved with a good bowel movement. In the interim, there is also a flatulence problem that accompanies everything else. Metamucil can help attain regularity if it is lost. Probiotics orally can reduce flatulence and help with the weakness and somewhat toxic symptoms. I hope my information is helpful. You can evaluate my input by rating your degree of satisfaction. Thanks again for using Justanswer.
