Horrible subject to talk about but I'm getting pretty desperate.. I've always struggled with constipation, after a urine test was diagnosed with ibs which is of no relief. I eat healthily, drink at least 4 litres of water a day and am always active. I simply have no urge to go and have gone up to 6 weeks with only a few very small movements. I get to the point where I'm so incredibly bloated, fatigued, getting mouth ulcers, acne, headaches.. It's making me miserable. I don't know what to do differently. I've moved to an area of relatively high altitute (1,456 metres) which I fear is making me worse. I've tried avoiding meat, dairy and starch but it just leaves me tired and cranky and no less constipated. Coffee no longer has any affect. I've found that fibre-based constipation relief makes me feel worse and I don't want to become reliant on laxatives. The best 'cure' seems to be extreme nervousness which since leaving the corporate world, I no longer suffer from.
If anyone has any advice I'd be very grateful. I'm living in a very small town where the health system/ spoken English is not particularly good so I'm not able to seek professional help.
