If you feel like you might faint, lie down and lift up your legs. This allows gravity to keep blood flowing to your brain. If you can't lie down, sit down and put your head between your knees until you feel better.

I can only imagine the smell my poor nose would endure if I put my head between my knees while on the toilet! Haha. For now, I just hold onto the towel rail next to the toilet. It kind of helps.
BQ those instructions sound a bit of a challenge while sat on a toilet!

I do have extreme lightheadedness most of the time, actually. I'm just one of those people that takes a crappy situation, no pun intended, and laughs at it. Hence the joke I made about putting my head between my legs. My motto is that if you're not laughing, you're not living and I've found that laughing at my misfortune with IBS helps a lot rather than sulking in my pity and falling into another depression that kept me in the house for 6 months. But anyway, there are definitely a few times when I get so lightheaded I really think I'm just going to fall over. I usually just hold onto to the towel rack and sit very still until it passes. The point of this post was to see how many people had the same problem and if there was any cures or quick fixes. Thank you for replying!
Well Chic I must have misunderstood... I thought you said you were having extreme lightheadedness with BM's.. but if holding on to the towel bar helps.. great. If it becomes not enough then I would certainly discuss other options with your Dr.
