I have a problem and am seeking your help. Everytime I have a bowel movement I have a tingly feeling which moves upwards from the buttom of my spine all the way up to my head. I was wondering what could possibly cause this sensation and how it can be connected to having a bowel movement.

Thank you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Its likely due to posture and prolonged sitting for the bowel movement that is causing this pain. No worries and nothing to be concerned about.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
