That sounds like a flare up to me. When I have flare ups it's similar to that.. I always have a lot of pain in my back and hips tho, due to arthritis stuff. But I get that urge to go and can't but it's usually due to blockage in my bowel. I get diarrhea for so long then get that other urge, then eventually i start throwing up.
