What Could Cause The Sudden And Overwhelming Urge To Make A Bowel Movement?

Sudden onset of nauseated feeling, perspiring on the forehead, clammy feeling coming on, continuing with dizziness and profuse sweating from head, neck and chest area creates the urgent need to make a bowel movement. Body is so heated, to the extent that I have the need to take off clothes and lay next to a cold item to cool body down. It's not gallstones because my gallbladder has been removed -- what else could it be?

Answer

Were you hungry when the episode happens?   Are you a diabetic? Or does type 2 diabetes run in your family and it's possible that you were experiencing hypoglycemia (sometimes a precursor to type 2 diabetes)?   The nausea and diarrhea don't necessarily fit, but everyone's body can react differently.

Or is it possible that your blood pressure is falling very low for some reason during these episodes.   You may want to visit the ER again while the episode is happening.   That way, the physicians can see what is happening to your body and check vital signs and even blood sugar while the episode occurs. I'm sorry if I just raised more question in your mind, but at least you have some things to think about and ask your physician about.
