Serious Question - I, on occasion (4-5 times a month) find myself in a very uncomfortable situation. Shortly after eating, I experience what my wife calls "Panic Poop". My stomach cramps up and I have a very short time to find a toilet. More times than I care to experience, I am in a car or nowhere near a viable bathroom. The type of food doesn't matter. I have not messed my pants, even though I have come close. I once destroyed a throw carpet in the bathroom and defiled a bucket in my minivan.
I have tried almost every remedy I can think of, the only thing that works is to avoid eating and driving. I think it is more anxiety than anything else.
I don't think this is a situation that calls for a "home remedy" Aside from keeping a bucket handy, that is....
Actually, it is fairly common for a person to have a defecation urge right after eating, but not an uncontrollable urge.
I think you need to observe your own feeding patterns and diet preferences very closely, and of course, your patterns of defecation. While you may actually have some type of physical malfunction, I suspect that it is related to a cycle of eating/diet that does not suit your particular physiology.
You should go a doctor.He may have to do an endoscopy(a small camera looks into your stomach)My mother had the same thing happen and the gasroenterologist found that she had a rare stomach disorder.Surgery was the only option but since she was past 80 she wouldn't consider that.There is also irritable bowel disease.It could also be a food allergy,my daughter and I are lactose intolerrent and anything that has olives or is cooked with olive oil affects us.This is not a laughing matter and you should see your DR immediately.
You really should contact your doctor. Someone has already mentioned irritable bowel syndrome, and that is associated with anxiety and depression. Since you are saying it is mostly anxiety, that's a likely cause. If you have developed panic disorder (very, very common) associated with driving, this will make any IBS worse.
Just do a Google search of "panic disorder and IBS" (keep the quotation marks), and you can find some pretty good introductory information on the topic. The other posters have already given good suggestions--finding the dietary triggers, talking to your doctor, etc. I think if you look this topic up specifically that you'll see that they probably are right. But, your doctor will know. So, a trip to see him/her is probably best.
As someone who had to have their gallbladder removed many years ago, I have a problem with this happening. The anxiety over it almost always causes it. I have an issue with using public restrooms on top of it and it just makes it worse. Two things that I do to try and keep it from happening is eat a low fat diet, it gets worse when my diet is higher in fat because your body produces bile to break down the fats in your food. More fat=more bile (bile makes things soft) the other is eat small meals, like a granola bar or fruit or whatever it is you like, eating a large meal kicks your body into 'evacuate mode' quickly. I can sympathize with you on your issue, it is no fun to have it happen, especially in a public setting. Good luck.
As a young man I had this exact problem. Doctor recommended Metamucil-which people assume is only for constipation. It serves more purposes than that. I''ve been taking three spoonfuls each night before dinner ever since. I've never had the problem again. That is all simplified but the heart of the matter. I also watch milk products and I used to be careful of soup and hot drinks. No more for the latter. I imagine it's a good idea to see a doc and have any necessary tests-I certainly did, but you might try this in the meantime. Metamucil is simply the husk of a grain.
