pass out before passing gas

I dont have any real pain, very slight. What my problem is that proir to having to pass gas or to have a bowel movement I feel the need to be faint or pass out. My bowel and urinary functions have not changed, just the way my body reacts to it.
I'm 43, I was real fit, quit working out 3 mos ago, put on 10 lbs, my jeans are tighter, and I just got back from a 5 hour trip each way in a car. I think the jeans realigned my back to a point where my bowel is putting pressure on something when my stool reaches a certain point. I have relieved this by keeping juices and fibre going, but every once in a while the feeling comes again. This has been going on for two weeks now. I know I need to go to the doc,
but I am one of those who needs to know in advance just what Im up against. As much as I can figure it must be a herniated or bulging disc. I did bend over a couple of weekends ago to move an end table for my mom, and YOWEE, I got a zinger in my back, again with the tight jeans, I tensed up and it went away. Now I am just dealing with the occassional "full" feeling in my sensoredocks and my upper legs. Any ideas?
