I am constipated for the last 2 years and I steadily lose weight. My colleagues insist that I eat more than anybody else but I keep losing weight and some find it alarming. Some overweight friends tell me that if they ate the same food like I do they would not fit the door.
I also find that my hunger is impossible to beat. I can eat the typical 3 big meals a day with many snacks in between which are not really low in calories.
I don't consume alcohol and I don't smoke and I don't drink sugary drinks. (just not my thing)
I noticed that whenever I go to the toilet I have greasy bowels one day and the next time the stool is hard as a rock. The next time it can be greasy and soft again and then hard again. Sometimes it's greasy at the beginning and then hard rock on its tail. I don't remember when I passed a normal stool the last time.
With my meals I eat really big salads with no dressing. I consume plenty of water. I bought this psyllium husk (some people swear by it) and after a week I felt more constipated. At that time I drank water like crazy but it didn't help. I increased the psyllium dose and still no effect.
Today I got complimented my some colleagues that I lost noticeable weight and I just said thank you to avoid any further discussion. I know I eat a lot more than the average person but constipation and weight loss are my symptoms.
I am kind of worried.
