The past 5 months have been a living hell for me. I have been constipated for an 5 entire months and it is destroying my life. I am unable to go without taking painful laxatives.
I have tried everything. Increased fiber, probiotics, stool softeners, I even went vegan to see if it would help etc but the only thing that works is dulcolax which is a laxative. I take 3 every Saturday night to flush whatever I can.
I have seen my doctor and emailed her constantly. I've had x-rays, blood work and a cat scan about 2 months ago. They have found nothing and said my digestive system is just slow. Ok?!! But how am I suppose to live like that?!
I currently am going to get an anal manometry test in hopes of them finding out what exactly is wrong. I am 25 by the way. This happened to me when I was about 19, I was constipated for 2 months but it went away with miralax. My dr said to take miralex 3 times a day but it gives no relief anymore.
Please if anyone has gone through something similar like this, let me know. And how do you get relief?
