I have a problem that has become a major issue.

Whenever I need to go and take a #2, my heart beat becomes rapid and it seems much weaker, and I often have chills. I just feel terrible! There is no actual pain or other visible problem, certainly no blood or anything I can see. I am 24/m and quite healthy.

It is only once I have gone to the bathroom that the problem goes away, and it does so quite rapidly. How could needing to go, equate to these symptoms?

I cannot find anything about this. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
