Faintness before bowel movement

Driving home tonight, hot feeling in my abdomen , dizziness and then shaking. Felt faint all the way home. Had a bowel movement when I got home. Still feel off and now have a headache.
I have slow gastric emptying, slow motility.
Any ideas? I have had this happen to me before and it always sets me into an anxiety attack as well.

Hello I had that to happen to me about a month ago. I was okay in the restromm reading, tried to get up and just hit the floor. My husband came and got me up, I was sweating and told him to get my clothes off. I laid across the bed feeling nauseated. Maybe five minutes later went to the restroom and all was well. Have a MRI with Metaform performed. I was diagnoised with IBS. In my earlier years I was treated for IBD.
