Interesting. I don't get fatigue after a BM. I have you this cold feeling in my hands and feets when I have more inflammation, or something to do with serotonin.Another weird thing is that right after a BM i feel like my extremities get cold and my hands feel dry! when i mentioned it to my doctor he made me feel like im 100% crazy.
not crazy. I have the same.Right after a bm i also feel very tired, in fact my GI is highly correlated with my fatigue. Usually when i have a crash it is preceded by bloating for a few days.

could it be an electrolyte problem?
I just had the BM from which I usually have to lie down for an hour. Fatigued, wiped out, brainfog.
For some reason I ate half a banana with salt prior to lying down and within 5 minutes I perked right up. No need for me to lie down now. Kalium? Or just plain blood sugar...
(I started to eat half a banana each day because my Kalium was low in regard to Sodium.)
I relate to this. I can't 'finish' properly due to the muscle and mental fatigue. I have to return later. This happens to me most days.
