Defecaloesiophobia: The Fear of Painful Bowel Movements

Defecaloesiophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of painful bowel movements.  In my own opinion it’s clear to see what the main cause of this could be. 

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
