Hi all. Thank you for your time.
I've been feeling constipated and cramping for quite a while now. So I went to the doctor who suggested that I take laxatives daily, have an enema every second day, up my fiber intake and drink more fluids.
After doing that for a week, while I can have a bowel movement (runny and soft), I still feel that I haven't emptied my bowels, and I have a constant feeling of needing to go, when I push to try to 'force it' I just feel blocked.
I feel crampy, full, bloated and generally uncomfortable, almost like PMS.
I have neglected my body and have definitely been drinking too much alcohol, and haven't been eating much due to stress. But for the past month or so, I've been eating regular healthy meals, and am cutting out the alcohol. (I'm not sure if that would be of relevance).
Now I'm beginning to wonder if that is just a side effect of something else going on, and being the weekend, I can't get to the doctor before Monday. So I was wondering if anyone else had experienced anything similar?
Ovulation and Menstruation did trigger similar symptoms, but it's been going on for much longer than that now.
