I have been constipated for about 10 days. My tummy sounds like a blocked drain and I feel very blocked on my left side. The doctor prescribed some gentle laxatives but these have done very little after 3 days. I had an iron infusion 2 weeks ago and I wonder whether that is at all significant. Also, I had a course of antibiotics around the same time and felt very bloated from the time I started them. Is that significant? I have pancolitis and also RA and take anti-TNF and Mesalazine. I NEVER suffer with constipation; it is usually the other extreme as fellow sufferers will know! The cramping is just terrible and I am all out of ideas, apart from calling the doctor again! I just wondered if anybody can share any experience or advice??
